Torrey Pines is probably our favorite place in San Diego… so much so that we decided to buy a year round pass to it so we can park in the paid lots. We figured between hikes and portrait shoots it would pay for itself. Yesterday we were there for an engagement shoot and since they mail the passes out we printed out our receipt to show the park person. Denied. What? Yep, they would not accept the receipt for some reason… even though we had paid that day. And the woman at the gate definitely didn’t care one bit. She was actually pretty rude about it. So we’re going to decline the charge and I guess we’ll go back to parking on the free side and walking a little ways.
