Memorial Day outing
Tuesday, May 27, 2014
We were invited by our neighbours to go out with them on their boat for the day, together with other neighbours of ours. DH had planned to take his boat out for the day but this sounded like a fun get together with friends.
We left the marina around 10:30 and headed north towards San Pedro Island. On the way there we spotted some sea lions, a sea turtle close by the boat and a whale in the distance.
San Pedro Island
There is a lot of fish around the island and we saw the dorado and skipjacks jumping on the surface. It is a favorite fishing area but today there weren't a lot of boats. The island is home to sea lions and a huge variety of birds and we could hear the sea lions barking on the coast line
Cove with sea lions:
It was lovely to be out on the water and we had a great time chatting and trying to spot more sea creatures. We came across a pod of dolphins, who liked to play in our wake.
We were home late afternoon and got changed to go to a birthday party on the beach. They had great margaritas!!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Memorial Day - I know I had :)
