Just another day in Paradise!!
We went and checked out the beach today!! wow what huge waves coming in..........all the surfers were out today!! The weather guys had warned of high surge ( that's one reason we didn't leave today) Who needs huge waves? Not if I can avoid it!! The kids had a blast playing on the beach, (Emma built a sandcastle),collecting shells, chasing waves, watching the surfers, and watching all the birds - their were a lot of sandpipers and these little things - there feet went to fast you could hardly see the feet!! so cute too!! Tried to get a photo but it didn't turn out. You can't really see them.
It was so nice to be on the beach!!
Wandered around the Pier, watching guys fish and looking at some shops. Even stopped at an arcade and played Air hockey ( i beat Steve and Kyle beat me) The lady working the prize area was so sweet and gave all the kids lots of extra goodies!!
We saw a seagull stuck in a crab trap too! Dumb bird, someone will let him out.
Thanks to all of you for telling Kyle how great To Kill a Mockingbird is......... I still had to pull rank and told him as part of his school curriculum he has to read it. I just know he'll like it!!!
I am looking for the movie Dr Zhivago cause I still haven't seen that one. All's fair in Books and Movies - :) haha
Did our costco run last night - Thanks Barb for getting my card activated so quickly!! one thing I have learned is that meat here is way cheaper (and better looking) at Costco then any of the other food stores. Time to start catching fish!! we will be getting a fishing license in Mexico!! we've plotted our course and it looks to be a day and half to San Diego. We don't plan on staying there long 2-3 days max. And then another 24 hrs or so( depending on wind,waves ect.) to Ensenada.
Time to get into Mexico.
TRIVIA TIME !!
Question #11 - What caused the corner of the Portofino Hotel (Kings Harbor) to collapse and send cars into the marina and destroyed some docks?
