Batiquitos Lagoon - Carlsbad

I've lived near this lagoon for years and today was the first time it occurred to me to see if there were walking trails around it. Turns out, there are. The trail goes along the lagoon which is a protected tidal wetland. Plenty of bird watching for the birders. The trail is flat and leashed dogs are welcome which makes it a fun outing.
 Looking across the lagoon. The pelicans were too far off to get a good picture.
 A few flowers grow but the area is mostly full of salt water plants. I only walked a short portion of the trail. This will be one to come back to sometime.
