Big girls in jammies -- Christmas afternoon, 4:30 p.m. Hmmmmm.
Oh, he looks friendly, but don't let him fool you. He may pose for photos, but he's not happy about it. (I zoomed.) The man at the shop next door told me Pete Pelican has a cellphone fetish. Last week, a man got too close with his new iPhone. This pelican, who always sits in the same spot posing for photos, reached out with that big beak, nabbed the device, and dropped it over the edge into the blue Pacific. Wonder if the guy's insurance replaced the phone? A pelican stole my new iPhone 5.
Needless to say, we never got in the pool. The sign freaked us out. A California friend did inform me that it's the law. Public and HOA pools must post these friendly signs. The posh beach hotel in San Diego must have been exempt. (And that's a good thing.)
Low rider parade.
This photo just struck us as -- squirrelly? When we first saw this thing, Craig said -- it's a marmot! Uhhhhhh -- what looks like a huge fat squirrel and hangs around in a marina? According to this article, it may be a bold fat ground squirrel.
I posted this photo on Instagram and some people immediately asked if this was Craig. Yes, we went to California so he could get back on a bike, carry a heavy surfboard, and learn to surf. That big plate in his right shoulder gives him Superman powers.
Not sure why this photo cracks me up. Maybe it's because this thing has four wheels, appears to be stable, and everyone but the blonde is wearing helmets? With the way our luck's been running, maybe Craig and I need to wear those in the car!
We're back to the desert. It'll be awhile before we see more of these type of sunsets. Southern California, while it's lovely, was not an adequate substitute for a month on Isla Mujeres. We had fun, enjoyed the sound of the waves for a little bit, but that little taste of the sea left me wanting.
Maybe next week's x-ray will give us a clue as to how long we're grounded. Oh well, there are worse things. It's supposed to be 60-something here today and very sunny. Life is good!
