We started Wednesday with a visit to La Jolla Cove. Went to see the seals and now understand our trip may have been unintentionally well timed. Later in the day we heard that they are to be "removed" in 48 hours.
The break wall pictured below was originally put in place to create what is called "The Childrens Pool". However, the seals took to it and made it their own. With all the lovely beaches near by, I can't see why these seals couldn't stay.....but I don't know the whole story.....so who knows what else may be a factor.
The break wall.....provides great views.
The seals on "Seal Rock", just down the coast.
A little guy swimming nearby.
Enjoying the view.
What a crew.
Off to the beach for some fun in the sun!
Carter is desperate to surf and hasn't since Hawaii when he was 3 years old. Thank goodness Uncle Bob is coming in soon to help!
I thought I'd put Lainey in her tutu suit for some fun pictures and later learned why I shouldn't.
Carter dug out some tiny crabs from the ocean and shared them with the little ones.
Big brother is always the hero!
I took the kids on a shell hunt and we found lots of stuff along the way. Sea weed.....Jack wouldn't touch it and yelled, "Groossssss!" when I offered it to him. Lainey had no problem checking it out.
Note to self: don't bring pricey swim suits to the beach.
Another walk, with Caroline this time.....wishing I spoke "Seagull" to warn this group of approaching danger.
After an afternoon at home with a LONG nap, the fam took pics on the beach. The photo shoot went well.....hoping we got a few good ones. Here we are in Old Town that evening for dinner.
And, dancing....get down, Laine!
Off to "Mickey's House" today! We have a hotel booked in Anaheim to allow everyone a spot to rest and relax during the day. We'll spend the night and then have a full day planned in the area....followed by dinner with Merrilee in Encinitas. Can't wait!
