It’s the 1960s and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous flight attendants all engaged to him without knowing about each other.

A morning mountain hike
Gather for a group hike to the summit of Cowles Mountain. The 1,593-foot peak is highest point in the city of San Diego, offering visitors a 360-degree panorama of the county. The hike to the top is 1.5 miles long and amounts to an elevation change of about 950 feet. Photos at the summit and water provided.
Earth Day at Torrey Pines
Visit 1,500 acres of land that are just as they were before San Diego was developed, including maritime chaparral, rare Torrey pine, miles of unspoiled beaches, and a lagoon that is vital to migrating seabirds. See what California must have looked like to early settlers, Spanish explorers, or first California residents the Kumeyaay people. Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve will have an Earth Day celebration near the parking lot for Upper Trails. Activities include exhibits, nature scavenger hunt, guided walks, arts and crafts, and live animals (reptiles, insects, birds).

Jesse Cross, dance caller and music man, will be playing live and leading the willing through a jug band hootenanny.
