We got lucky enough to see some limpets, but no urchins or starfish or other groovy things. None the less, we had a great time. Pax found a feather and was a seagull as we hiked and climbed and got soaked by crashing waves. He and daddy found a super fun double sided hill to run like a ramp and we saw tons of pelicans.
After the adventure, we headed to the visitor center and lighthouse. P earned another Jr Ranger badge and hung out with a Conquistador. It was a bit of a cloudy day, but that didn't dampen our spirits. Pax even swam with a whale! Ok, so it was a cement whale on the sidewalk...
As we passed the national cemetery, we asked Pax if he wanted to stop or keep going. He chose to stop. It was pretty incredible how reverent and respectful he was. For some reason he seems to fully understand and he even asked some compelling questions. He's a good kid.
I think I really dig San Diego.
