please ignore the fact that is has been WEEKS since mothers’ day. eso si que es… (did i spell that right?) my friends. in an attempt for mom to extend mother’s “day” into a weekend celebration, she found a great idea to explore the local tidepools. she’s continuing her attempt at visiting literally ALL the beaches in orange county. it’ s gonna take a while. this little gem is in corona del mar, called “little corona del mar beach” she checked the tides…. that’s important you know and we got there just after the afternoon low tide. morning low tide is better, but friends, it’s at 5am. sorry…
as always, containers were brought for the event. colin likes his treasures…. it was beautiful. heaps of hermit crabs crawling around in the water, along with sea anemones.
initially this was the only view mom saw of us.
here was her chance to take in the view…
there’s a crab in here… somewhere.
colin was on a serious mission. he found some really good stuff. shells abandoned by hermit crabs, and even what mom would say was a shark’s tooth.
someone lost a leg…
stick with dad, he finds the good stuff.
there’s a house up on that cliff… i want to live there.
mom’s favorite shot of the day
cause this is way more fun that just smiling and hugging each other.
mom tag-teamed with mimi on this. look a smile!
then we found a deeper pool, warm from the sun and leftover from the tide. colin couldn’t resist.
when i realize nothing has eaten colin yet, i make my way in. ever the cautious one.
thank goodness for little brothers.
we wrapped it up and headed for some mexican food. the perfect start to mother’s day mom said…
