We went to Cabrillo National Monument and found immersed ourselves in the rich history of the Spanish conquistadors and of the US Navy. Nix and I earned our Jr. Ranger Badges after two days of hard work. That park’s activities were like a scavenger hunt and we had to find all sorts of things, from the lighthouse to the tide pools.
We also swam with wild sea lions at La Jolla Cove! They came right up on the beach too, sunbathing next to people. Those guys were loud too!
I did complete my goal of 50,000 words in 30 days thanks to nanowrimo.org and can officially say I AM A 2014 WINNER!
But besides being National Novel Writing Month it seemed like November was Amusement Park Month- we made it to Sea World and Knott’s Berry Farm; making sure to go on all of the craziest rides! Nix and I even managed not to scream on the Supreme Scream #daredevils 😉 The trick is to go during the week when everyone else is at work/school- we could run off the end of the ride and be back in the roller coaster before the next ride had even left! We are having the best time in California!
