We took advantages of a beautiful day to have our outdoors venture in Point Loma, the most western point of San Diego. This is the location of Cabrillo National Park that commemorated the first European explorer discovering the coast of California back in the 1500s. I feel uneasy coming to this kind of place where the highlight was more on the exporers but less on the indigenous groups of native tribes who owned the land for many thousand years before the arrivals of European explorers. But, let me save my sentiment of injustices for another day.
The reason we went to this national park in the first place was because KG received a free annual pass to any National parks in The U.S. I think this is a wonderful program to get kids as young as KG’s age to learn and be appreciative of national parks, lands, and bodies of water. He just recently studied about California’s early history, including the presences of European explorers (who came by mistakes thinking they reached India!) I am all for educational opportunities and wanted to help him connect what he read in the text to hands-on learning by visiting the momument. So it was a perfect timing!
We walked around the momument, which has a perfect location and vista point to look out to the ocean where shipping cargoliners and sail boats dotted along the sparkling coast line. From there, we could also see the hills of Tijuanna, Mexico perching out near the southern borders. It was a beautiful day with a perfect weather (74F!) to walk around the short trails and embracing the cool ocean breezes.
I wish that we had more time to do the longer 2-mile trails to experience a complete immersion of visiting a national park.
For our next trip, we are going back to Muir Woods in Northern CA. I love the tall time-defying redwood trees.
We finished two more episodes of AGT tonight and saved the last episode for tomorrow night. We are almpst there catching up to the lastest season.
It’s 11:46 pm, almost midnight. Guess what my husband is doing?
I am on this side of my bed blogging. He is on his side of bed singing out loud. He chose a song by The Temptations, singing to the lyrics but I cannot hear the music because he has his headset on. Then he turned to me and asked, “how did I do, honey!”
I just gave him a obligated answer, two words, “good job!”
What I didn’t tell him is how off tuned he is with the song. But then, I don’t want to ruin his leisure time.
Do other couples do this kind of things? We are so random and odd that I think it’s just normal way of life for us.
Oh gosh, now he moves on to singing “Hello” by Lionel Richie!!!
I am going to bed.
