More of Trip to San Diego

Usually when I go to San Diego, it rains, but not this time. The weather was perfect, and Mara and Corrie took a kayaking lesson in La Jolla.


After a little instruction, they were ready for a paddle in the ocean - I hope...


Bye-bye!


While they paddled over to the cliff in the distance, Jonathan chased the wildlife -


And played in the waves.


Finally, they returned, with Mara doing much of the paddling. Hmmmm...

They had a great time and saw sea lions, a dolphin, and some colorful fish.


Mara's quite a smart little cookie - she just turned 7 and can already play chess, something I never did learn.

They are just way too cute. I never was any good at chess. Finally gave it up after high school.

What a nice time. Your grandkids are adorable, but then they come from good genes.

Chess at 7! Wow, one smart little lady. Nice to see kids playing something other than video games.
