california dreaming

We've escaped to California for a final family vacation as just the three of us.  After a night's delay in Chicago we landed in San Diego and now we're headed up the coast to LA, stopping tonight in Laguna Beach.  But we had a particular highlight today - the seals at a protected cove in La Jolla.  We've never seen so many seals and it was such a treat to see them in their natural habitat.  Not that this image does the experience any justice - what you might think are rocks on the sand are actually seals, sunning themselves during the pup season.

It was simply awesome.  And way better than Sea World.

My mom lives in San diego and we go see the seals every year! It is such a treat to see all of them hanging out on that little beach and playing in the waves.
