Another Gem in San Diego: Miramar Reservoir

Thanks to my friend’s recommendation, my husband and I recently visited the Miramar Reservoir for the first time. Located in the Scripps Ranch area of San Diego, Miramar Reservoir is a place loaded with nature and atmosphere! One of those ‘hidden gems’ in my opinion. Nearly 5 miles of paved trail (and a few areas right next to the water) surround the ‘lake’.

Want to go fishing? You can obtain a fishing permit, bait & tackle from the facilities and concessions stand.  Apparently the reservoir is home to largemouth bass, crappie (lol), bluegill, channel catfish, sunfish and trout. There are minimum size & amount limits.

Also visit the concession stand (opened Wednesdays through Sundays) for the following:

Hungry or  Thirsty? Grab some snacks & drinks!

Up for some exercise with a bike ride? You can rent bikes for adventures on land!

Yearning for the water? You can rent kayaks, motorized boats, rowboats even pedal boats! Read here about restrictions and use of float tubes as well

Or, like us, simply power walk, or simply stroll the trail loop.

What are you waiting for???

Directions: Take #15 to Mira Mesa Boulevard traveling East. Take a right turn onto Scripps Ranch Boulevard, then a left on Scripps Lake Drive. You’ll see the entrance on your left.

Feel free to click on these photos from our afternoon at Miramar Reservoir! You can click on each one to see a better view.

First of all, the ‘geese patrol’ greeted us!

A Poem & Artistic ‘Finds’ at Torrey Pines State Beach

 

A poem and some photos from today’s fitness walk at

Torrey Pines State Beach!

‘Mother Nature Evokes’!

by Susan J. Farese, SJF Communications

 

Art in Nature! Nature as Art!

Captured with my lens -Doing my part

I acknowledge, respect and document

And sprinkle emotional sentiment!

It magnifies the magnificence

It clarifies the significance

And so, do you agree, with me?

Then snap away, draw, paint, dance or sing

Cherish Mother Nature somehow every day…

So that in your own way – nature’s truth will ring!
