To look at things is very different from seeing it – Oscar Wilde

Another special day

Today is Marco’s birthday! After talking to our parents in Switzerland we drive out to Point Loma, hoping to see Gray Whales. Each winter the Pacific Gray Whales pass by the western overlooks of Cabrillo National Monument (Point Loma). After spending the summer feeding in the food-rich waters of the arctic, the Grays swim south along the coast to the bays of Baja California, where they mate and nurse their young (you can find more information on their migration on the National Park’s Website ). We don’t know what the actual likelihood is to see them, but it doesn’t seem to be very high from what we hear. But, anyway, we will be back – you never know …..
I actually wanted to invite Marco out to the Outback Steakhouse to celebrate his birthday but as we had a big piece of meat yesterday already we decide to postpone that. Instead, we have ham and home made potato salad.
