Bird Rock

We have lived in the San Diego area for about four and a half years now.  We have spent a lot of time at the beach, but usually beach trips consist of playing in the water, building sand castles, and trying to find Taylor out on his surf board (which is always a challenge because everybody has a white board and a black wetsuit).  Sometimes we head to the children’s pool to see the seals.  But we never go to the tide pools.  That, my friends, is going to change.  We went on Saturday.  We checked on the tides and they were negative lows.  Usually when they get that low, it’s at a time that is very inconvenient.  This weekend was perfect.  Although it’s been quite cold (and still was there), it was so worth it!  We went to Bird Rock in La Jolla and it was amazing!  We got there about an hour before sunset and there was lots to see.

We ran into some boy scouts we knew from church who were also exploring.  They found lots of cool animals and helped us know where and what to look for.  They had found a few lobster, some small octopi, and even an abalone!

She thought this octopus was especially cool.

We had a great time and will definitely do it again.
