Last day at the beach

Three days in a row of going to the beach and James and I were ready to actually go out and see some of the sights. Now I had been coming to La Jolla with my family pretty much every summer of my entire life. We knew the place and had many traditions. One of the things we always did when I was a kid and came with my family, was to go out on the seawall and look at the seals. James really enjoyed doing this so we decided to take Henry.

The seals, very different from sea lions. Yes, I know the difference, do you?

James and Henry on the sea wall.

I like Henry's coy smile here.

Jeez, my mom and dad are crazy!

Another one of the places we love to go is Seaport Village. I was excited for Henry to get to ride on this really cool super old carousel they have there. I was a bit sad thought because there was no way I would be able to climb up on a horse and ride with him so James got to do it.

Henry chose a dragon to ride on :)
Ooh shiny!

Henry was not as impressed as I thought he'd be. This was his face pretty much throughout the whole ride.

I had to ride on the bench on the carousel. As you can see, I was not please.

And of course, we couldn't leave without visiting the Ben and Jerry's scoop shop! Henry enjoyed some strawberry cheesecake ice cream. Yum!

The next day, we needed to leave pretty early because we were going to drive the entire way back without stopping in Yuma as we did on the way over. But we couldn't leave without saying goodbye to the ocean!

Henry had fun walking along the wall on the boardwalk.

My toes had to wiggle in the sand one last time.
And that about wraps it up. We had a blast! :)
