High, fast water at torrey pines state beach. Penasquitos Creek empties into Penasquitos Lagoon which empties out into the ocean here under this bridge. The beach is being eroded away and the heavy brown river is a marked contrast against the deeply green ocean today. The standing waves at the interface between the river and the ocean are dramatic. Water is moving fast and thunders up against the pilings of the bridge.
