I made a stop here in my way to the airport today. Figured I'd go early to get past the Del Mar traffic and get some steps in. 12 noon on a Labor Day Friday and the parking lot was wide open. Surprising but it worked for me. I used to swim to that little island but these days the water seems to get polluted too often for me to want to go in. Very Lorax-like.
I hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday weekend!
