Day Two: Whales on the Northern California Coast

We took a little family trip up the coast last week. On our second day, Zoom and I went to “Shell Beach” after visiting a little playground on the coast. He picked up shells, but spent most of his time throwing rocks in a small tidepool. And having snacks.


As he was having a snack, some people up on the cliff asked if we had seen the whales … and no, we were so fascinated by our crackers that we had not. Thank heavens they clued us in!! We saw the whales spouting and flapping their tales. Amazing.

Here’s Zoom and I by the cliffs, after climbing up from the beach.


After we got back from all that playing and snacking and whale watching, it was time for a “nigh nigh” in a dog bed. All in all, an awesome day.


PS. This was not taken on a Tuesday; nor were we even up there on a Tuesday. So the baby has day of the week socks, and he wears them on the wrong day… did I mention we saw whales? 🙂

    Ha! Atticus loves our dog beds too (they are basically identical to yours). I think the child furniture industry is missing a golden opportunity!

    It seems they are. My sister’s twins love their dog beds, too. Seems pretty cuddly and cozy. Maybe I should look into a larger one to use for myself? Great Dane size?

    That is a sweet picture of Zoom in the dog bed. Oh what I’d give to be at the beach and see whales!
