We were treated to a beautiful day here in the Channel Islands! While there was still a persistent breeze and slight cloud coverage, this provided the ideal conditions for a day full of hiking and exploration.

A large handful of guests embarked on an all-day hiking adventure out to the iconic Torrey Pines Grove. Totaling nearly 7.5 miles round-trip, this group was delighted by expansive ocean views, relaxation time under the shade of the endemic Torrey trees, and even a fortunate fox sighting or two.

But they weren’t the only ones who had a great day, other guests chose to explore the Cherry Canyon Loop and were amazed at the abundance of wildflowers blooming. With such a small window to see this technicolor display, hearts were full from the beautiful morning.

In the afternoon, a second round of adventures were offered, ranging from a fox-searching specific outing, playtime on the beach, or some free time to roam at one’s leisure.

To finish today’s adventures, guests enjoyed appetizers and cocktails on the sundeck. Though a bit breezy, we all bundled up and embraced the familiar Channel Islands’ wind and didn’t let it blow away the celebratory spirit of a great day.
