We have been extra careful with Covid it has drastically changed the way we self educate . We use to be busy almost everyday with friends exploring interests .
One of our favorite new finds is the La Jolla Cove tide pools. Find parking along Coast Blvd. and walk down the stairs at La Jolla Cove to get to the sandy beach area. Look for the small cave, and walk past it around the point to find the pools.
WHAT TO LOOK FOR:
Look for limpets, anemones, hermit crabs, mussels, and barnacles of all different shapes and sizes. Plenty of algae cover the rocks, making them slippery; but it’s great for exploring. The mussels and barnacles can be found lower in the tide pool area, along with abundant seagrass.
We explored the tide pools , built sandcastles, flew a kite , played football . Talked about the erosion happening to the cliffs. Best of all we created memories everyone came home feeling refreshed.
LETS TALK FOOD:
We found some amazing places to eat. Jorge was CRAVING tacos and the boys wanted PIZZA. Since the boys usually win I yelped tacos and guess what we pulled up and there was an amazing pizza place . At The Taco Stand we ordered the Corn, Churros & of each taco - don't judge . At Mr. Moto Pizza the boys order the 3 slice special and the stuffed knots.
One of the places my oldest has the best memory exploring with his best-friend is
From 19 yrs of homeschooling there are certain things I always have in the back of the van: Beach Gear & Clothes bag with things listed below. I keep the cooler backpack I got at Target by the pantry door so its easy to throw things into. Our chairs we got at Costco you can carry like a backpack. So below may sound like a lot but I compact it all so its easier to carry.
Thanks for join us on our adventure happy tide pooling!
