We drove over to nearby Ocean Beach to sit at the dog beach and enjoy the joy.
We stopped for a look at my favorite Christmas Tree. The wonky beach ball tree on the beach in Ocean Beach.
We've gone to the small Farmer's Market in Pacific Beach, again. Yes, more kouign amann, and a couple loaves of addictive, chewy, flavorful Sourdough Bread and lots of good, hot radishes for Dave.
|ho ho ho|
We followed the coast up to La Jolla to watch the fat and lazy seals lounging on the Children's Pool beach and then on to pick up a couple little Christmas treats.
|tell tale seal signs......|
|seals aren't the only ones resting on this beach|
When we got back in the car we found this little guy working the parking lot for a hand out. He paraded around with his mouth open, looking at us pointedly and squawking for food as long as we kept the car door open. He then moved to the next vehicle and repeated the process. An adult sat quietly atop a nearby car, as if she was watching him ply the family trade or perhaps she just told him to "go bother someone else!!!!!"
|please sir, can I have some more?|
After a quick stop at a nearby shopping center (that had these really neat, living panels on it's interior walls), we headed home.
Along the way we passed this enormous and stunningly white Mormon temple.
Another day we thought we'd tour the USS Midway so we parked nearby and headed to the huge ship. Turns out neither of us really felt like it, so instead we walked and walked, once again, just experiencing what there was to see. Don't say we missed a great museum - we have done the Midway twice before and thoroughly enjoyed the experience both times.

Although I have no photographic evidence, we had a nice and experimental Happy Hour with friends Laura and Kevin. Experimental in the sense that we were invited to test the waters with their new young man. He has the most glamorous ears you've ever seen......Perhaps I'll have some pictures tomorrow.
And, of course, we've been enjoying the fabulous sunsets over the bay.....
