GPS: 32.97842, -117.24745
Come along for a morning lagoon walkabout. We end up at the coast by “South Dog beach” and can go for a short swim or wading time if you like so wear or bring clothes/shoes for water in a pack or just enjoy the ocean and bay view. This is the beginning part of the Coast to Crest trail. A nice flat walking trail. Several info placards to read, an Osprey nest, many water birds, and a lagoon boardwalk. We walk to the coast on the south side of the Del Mar Dog & volleyball beach area then same way back. The total walk is 4.25 miles in 2-3 hours at easy pace with stops. Porto-potties are at the Volleyball beach area. Dogs on leash with drinking water is ok. You can let dogs off at the beach but clean up any mess.!
Dress for weather, swimming or wading perhaps, and full sun; sun block, hat, water bottle, water shoes or towel.
