Looking for sea life:
Mostly crabs scurrying around and shellfish clinging to rocks:
And Jillian was willing to hold it for a second:
The grey didn't burn off until around 4 today, so it was a good day to be doing this. Ryan took this one for us:
The boys headed down to explore:
While Jilly and I took some self portraits:
Love the layered stone:
Most of what we saw was just along the water's edge (they say the best time to comeis in winter at low tide, so we are a bit out of season), but we did find one true "pool" back in a little cave. In it we saw fish that were really well camouflaged.
Scott and Jill on the outer edge of the pool:
Favorite family pictures:
We left the tidal pools and headed back up the hill to the original Point Loma lighthouse located in Cabrillo National Monument:
The lighthouse was closed for some reason when Scott and I were here in 1996, but this time it was open for us to walk through.
Jillian tells me that they are up there:
We could climb almost to the very top:
Close enough to get this shot of the light:
And at Cabrillo's actual monument, Ryan and Scott recreated a pose made famous by Scott and Aunt Sandy 15 years ago:
After this, we met Aunt Sandy, Sarah, Jason and Jacob for lunch at one of Sarah's favorite restaurants: The Corvette Diner. Great burgers, yummy milkshakes, and awesome music make for a fun lunch!
The sun came out later for us to walk to a park. Jillian and Jacob slid together today:
