it’s a good time to drop everything else and go exploring. Especially when you live somewhere with such great places to explore.
So we went straight from the airport to the beach.
We showed them seals and pelicans and cormorants.
sea caves, and little hermit crabs in tide pools,
and more seals.
When the visiting friend is one of my oldest and dearest, and also one of my favorite walking buddies we will take another day and go for a hike in a nature reserve.
and then to the beach again, this time to get wet.
|Jellybean is growing.|
We got to show her little girl the ocean for the first time.
|look at that face!|
She cried when it was time to leave.
Then we watched the sunset.
And to top off the day we visited one of California’s oldest and best burger joints, and I let the kids share a milkshake.
We are having so much fun, and there is a lot of catching up going on around here.
It’s been a wonderful week.
