HARBOR SEAL SHOWING OFF WHISKERS & TONGUE

It’s not just the harbor seal pups that steal our hearts.  Adult harbor seal’s antics capture our hearts, too.  This black harbor seal has the most gorgeous set of whiskers, yawns wide & sticks her tongue out at us!  She practically flutters her eyelashes to show us how adorable she is!  

COAST WALK TRAIL & WILD MUSTARD EXPLOSION – LA JOLLA

HISTORIC COAST WALK TRAIL IN LA JOLLA – Winter rains & the end of a 9 year drought has brought an explosion of Wild Mustard blooming everywhere.  Walking down Coast Walk Trail and viewing the sea through a yellow haze of tiny mustard flowers is a wonderland too magical to miss.  As soon as the hot summer sun starts baking the bluffs, the mustard will fade, but I will always carry the beauty of this time in my heart.

Seaweed hat for a Harbor Seal – It’s mating season!
