Nature's Gift On Mothers Day

These two baby pigeon chicks hatched in our backyard just in time for Mother's Day!

They're not as pretty as their mom yet, but they've already won my heart.  I think they hatched on Sunday morning, but it could have been the night before.  They spend most of their time huddled under their mother's breast, which is wise since our weather has suddenly turned chilly.

Hope you had a Mother's Day that was just right for you!  We went to church, followed by a delicious brunch, then came home to discover the pigeons had hatched in our lemon tree.  That's a perfect day in my book.

Pelicans Flock To Coronado

This was the scene at Coronado Beach yesterday; there were oodles of people on our shores trying to cool off and enjoy the sun, when a huge flock of pelicans spotted fish in the shallow water.

To me it looked like pterodactyls were attacking the swimmers, but in reality I don't think the pelicans paid much attention to people when they were focused on catching their fish lunch.

That school of fish must have moved fast, because you could watch the flock of pelicans move down the beach, diving and soaring over the waves.

It's Hot In Coronado

It is hot, hot, HOT in Coronado today!  I walked on the beach for awhile this afternoon before school got out, but unless you are actually in the water it's a little too warm for my taste.

See the rolling hills in the background of this photo?  That's Tijuana, Mexico.  Yes, we are in Southern California!

View of Coronado Bridge From The San Diego Bay

This was our view of the Coronado Bridge earlier today while sailing on the San Diego Bay.  It was a clear, sunny day with blustery winds that kept boaters on their toes!

Note the San Diego Skyline peeking under the bridge in the distance, with Coronado sitting on the far left.
