After getting a glimpse of the ocean the night before, Jack was determined that we spend the next day at the ocean. It worked for me. The weather was iffy at best and I didn't really want to pay a fortune to get rained out of an attraction. We headed to Torry Pines beach, which was very close to our hotel. He was mesmerized.
It was a perfect day for picking up some shells and playing in the sand.
But someone couldn't stay out of the water.
And it was windy and overcast.
And once he got his shorts wet in the freezing cold water, he was pretty much over the ocean. :( We decided to leave and get something for lunch. I was hoping to persuade him to go back to the beach, but it wasn't happening. We also walked aorund a few shops in Del Mar. After that we decided to head for the Children's Pool in La Jolla.
It's a wonderful place to observe harbor seals up close.
It's also a pupping ground.
Although one of us enjoyed the spray from the ocean. :) I asked if he wanted to go back to the beach and play and he said no. I told him he didn't have to get wet, we would just play on the beach. He said, "I'll get wet, no matter what. I just can't help myself."
After that it was back to the hotel for a warm shower and some faetime with the siblings. Then we ate at a pizza joint down the street. He watched a movie while I packed up our things, it was our last night in this hotel.
I'll continue the rest tomorrow, this post got a little long. :) Tomorrow will be all about Sea World.
