Seal Watching

A couple of weeks ago, we went to visit a new friend, Hans Thomas Weber. My mom and dad have been friends with his parents, John & Bridget, for a long time. Hans didn't seem to like me at first.

We were lucky to get a couple of warm days, so we could go for long walks on the beach. On one of our walks, we saw a seal that had been washed onto the beach.

He was really cute, but the beach ranger said his claws were really dangerous, so we just looked at him from a safe distance.

It seemed like we waited for high tide forever, in hopes that the seal would swim back into the ocean. Happily, he did!

It was really good to see you in La Quinta. We enjoyed taking a boat ride with you, chasing the coots around Lake Laguna, and eating jaji with you (Who the heck can spell "jaji?"). We also enjoyed visiting with Mom and Dad and we can't wait to see you all again.
