Lillian's Grammy is visiting us this week, so Lillian has been getting spoiled rotten with lots of love, new clothes, ice cream and cake.
Mother nature has also been spoiling us rotten with some picture perfect, only-in-California weather. At Grammy's request we went out to the beach today. The stars (OK, actually the moon) aligned for a conveniently post-brunch, noontime low-tide, great for exploring the sea life in the tide pools at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve in Montara. We haven't been to the beach since last summer, and we were expecting it to be foggy, windy and chilly as it often is year round. However, today was one of those rare gems: a glorious, warm, sunny, still day in the middle of February. After exploring the rocky tide pools and checking out the seals sunning themselves, we found a sheltered cove with a little sandy beach and still water. Lillian stripped off her sweater and then her shoes and pants to take a little dip in the chilly ocean water.
