San Diego

My Baby Sister recently moved to San Diego with her Marine Hubby. They've only been there a month and we already bombarded them with a visit. We had so much fun. We went to the beach the first day there.


Enjoyed a gorgeous sunset.


 Middle Child played with Alien-looking Kelp.

Baby used his kelp as a fire hose.


Baby Sister and Me.

The next morning we went back by ourselves since everyone else had to work. We tried to find the same beach. But we took a wrong turn and ended up just a little bit south of the beach.


We ended up at Lo Jolla Cove. We parked and Olaf peeked over the edge of the cliff. He saw this beautiful beach.


And Sea Lions! They were loud.


We walked down the to cove. The water here was perfect for Scuba Divers, not so great for swimming because it became deep really fast.


The tide was starting to go out so Olaf looked in the tidal pools area for sea life. He found some sea anemones and little crabs.


We walked a little farther down and found some rocky outcroppings that we walked along.


And then we came upon the Seals! They were quiet and didn't make a peep.


After we trudged back to our car someone offered to take our pic.


By this time we were all hungry and had lunch at this cute seaside cafe. It's called Goldfish Point Cafe. They give you goldfish crackers with your sandwich! Then we took the boys back to the beach and let them play in the water for a couple of hours. We put sunblock on at this point. But it was too late for me. My feet and ankles were sunburned to a crisp from the walk. I wore the same shoes the rest of the time there.

Tune in next time for more of our adventure!

The first time I looked at the pic of Clayton, I thought he was holding some kind of lizard or snake. :-) Beautiful pics - looks like a great time!
