La Jolla - Our last day.



On my last day in San Diego, Jon and I decided to head back down to La Jolla to have breakfast at Brockton Villa again (Couldn't get enough of that Coast Toast!). It was such a BEAUTIFUL day that after we ate, we walked along the coast.
The sun was shining. There wasn't a cloud in the sky. All types of people were out and about. We passed a photo shoot, with a wedding theme. A little farther along, was passed a real wedding. Barefoot and on the beach. So sweet.
We walked until we came upon a large crowd of people. All standing around, looking down to the beach. Of course, being nosey we wanted to see what was going on. Come to find out, we stumbled upon what is affectionately known as, 'The Children's Pool'.


 This is a really cool area of the beach/coast line that the seals have decided to claim as their own. Apparently between the months of February and March, is when the seals decide to have all their babies.  They were all over this area. It was probably one of the most amazing things I have seen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We also walked along the pathway and watched the waves crash into the sea walls and were amazed at the beauty of it all.

 

 



 The water was just this amazing color of blue. Not the muddy brown ocean water on our side of the country.  There were also other creatures chilling out all over the place. We actually came across this area of rock that you could climb down and in between all the tight areas of jagged rock there were tons of crabs! It was insane! I couldn't get a good picture without the fear of falling in. But Jon and I did get a very nice lady to take our picture.


 

 


 



 

 


A few more random shots of us walking along the coast. It was so beautiful there.

 
 
 
 




It was a wonderful way to spend our last day together. I am so thankful to my Dad, who came down to stay with the kids and my friends and sister who pitched in to help. I couldn't of asked for a better way to spend time with Jon before he left for Afghanistan. These are the memories we'll keep to get us through these lonely days before he can come home.
