Angela and Darryl – the kind of self-portrait where you hold the camera out as far as your arm can reach and then Darryl photo-shopped the angles.
’01 March, April and May
Including: Many Monday nights, Mother’s Day, the Zuckerman’s La Jolla Fete, Aquarium Of The Pacific, Darryl’s birthday at David’s, and More!
There were separate jumping off cliffs for hang-gliders and cliffs for the remote control planes. These guys were another story. They eagerly answered my questions and were utterly Fanatical about their planes.
This is a line-up for a race and despite the quiet there was plenty Plenty of ego invested in these bits of wood and plastic.
The whole Glideport is reserved for wind powered devices only, no combustion allowed. The planes were remote controlled though so there must be some concession to the concept of a totally wind powered operation.
La Jolla has set aside a beach and beach access for the harbor seals that rest there. It is very way cool. You can stand along that break wall and watch them sleep. I watched them sleep for a half hour. Every few minutes one of them would start the excruciating process of inch-worm moving and in 10 minutes would have maneuvered himself down the sand a few feet or up the rocks a bit (although they can swim at 15 miles per hour). It was compelling. Everyone standing there was a-gape and left only reluctantly.
On the beach. I learned this at the Long Beach Acquarium where I visited the following weekend. What we are looking at are Harbor Seals who look like sausages and move like inch worms. Sea Lions are the ones who sit up at the silly shows and balance balls on their noses and bark.
We had a Big Hit afternoon at the Aquarium Of The Pacific in Long Beach. If you are anywhere near Long Beach you would be very well served to take advantage of this wonderful local opportunity. Go during the week during the late afternoon and avoid the rush of baby RV Sized baby strollers EVERYWHERE. Another reason to admire Retirement!
