San Pedro Playdate

Mother Nature has finally decided to bless us with some summer temperatures… now that it’s the middle of August. I’m not complaining, but it would have been nice to have this mild of a summer last year when I was pregnant! Aaah… rant complete.

Yesterday, Tommy and I went to Point Fermin Park in San Pedro to hang out with our friends Jessica and Colin. Since Point Fermin Park is on the coast, the chilly breeze was a nice change from the 90 degree temperatures at home. Tommy and I arrived a little early, so we walked around the park snapping some photos of the pretty coastline. Well, I snapped pictures, Tommy just looked around and made funny noises.

It was a lovely, clear day and you can just barely see Catalina Island and the Channel Islands at the horizon.



Point Fermin Lighthouse
is a historical landmark and they offer tours during the week. It doesn’t look much like a lighthouse at first glance. Apparently there are only three lighthouses in the US still around that were built in this style. One of them is the East Brother Light Station, which is a bed and breakfast in Richmond.

The park has lots of trees that would be fun to climb… if I still climbed trees.

Tommy is no longer afraid to touch grass so, I spent most of the afternoon keeping him from simply crawling away. Hence, no photos of the babies.  It was a really nice afternoon visit with Jessica and Colin.

    When did Tommy get over his fear of grass?

    @christao408 – he got over it over the course of a few visits to the park… the desire to pick up leaves was more powerful than his fear of touching the grass. We can no longer leave him on a blanket and expect him to stay there.
