We went for a drive, about a 45 minute trip one way from our ranch, and had to see this great 360 degree view that a friend told us about. We were so glad we'd experienced Two Peaks, a little unknown park with an enormous inland and coastal view. It's located in San Marcos, California. This is a view of Discovery Lake from Two Peaks. Photos for Skywatch Friday.
Two Peaks is located near a University, so there are plenty of houses nearby, lots of students, as well as water sources. Discovery Lake is so refreshing to see from above.
Lake San Marcos offers the community a great golf course, private residential and nursing facilities. There's a very nice restaurant off the water. I've been there and have had a pleasant meal. Lots of birds to see and fish to catch.
You're looking out towards the Pacific Ocean in this photo and you can see the Carlsbad Lagoon and #5 (main Freeway moving tons of people from San Diego to L.A. and then some. Although it wasn't a very clear day for July, I plan to return when it's not so overcast with my Nikon D200.
To the left of the tan-white buildings is a leveled square patch of land. Located here is the old San Marcos High School. Well, there's nothing left of it! They plan to build a new one. It seems like ages ago that my grown children attended there. Although the buildings are removed, the memories will always live on in our hearts.
My grandson is on top of the world! It was wonderful to return to our old stomping grounds and enjoy a new experience together with one of our grandchildren. Remember the folk song by Arlo Guthrie, "This Land is Your Land"? Well, it was that kind of moment, seeing the future in front of youth taking a leap of faith.
My 4-year-old grandson felt like "King of the Mountain" until he stepped down from 'his rock' and discovered a 10-year-old rope climber doing his thing. He seems to be an admirer thinking to himself, "That's what I want to do when I'm bigger!"

For Book Sharing, Friday 56 at Freda's Voice:
-- Tony Evans from God is more than EnoughDavid says, however, that in spite of how everything looks in the valley, in spite of how it feels, in spite of the gloom that's crowding in on him like death itself, he isn't going to succumb to fear.
This is an easy read since the passage is familiar and it's a small paperback book. I can't wait to post my review on this one because the text is so inspiring. My hubby heard Tony Evans speak at Promise Keepers and you probably saw Tony's son on a recent TV show, The Voice.
All in all, it was a wonderful day!
