Torrey Pines 2: Sunsets and Beach Life - 22nd September 2005

Ken D, from Qualcomm, takes Nosher out for a photo session in Torrey Pines state park, near Del Mar just outside San Diego. The primary mission was to look out for a rocket launch from Vandebergh AFB, which sadly wasn't seen (probably due to clouds which drifted over just at the wrong time). However, it was still a good session, and was capped off with an excellent home-cooked dinner and evening of political conversation courtesy of Ken and his wife.
