Birch Aquarium “Sea Dragons”

Filed under: Places to visit, Uncategorized — Tags: , — washaw @ 8:57 am


Unlike most seahorses Weedy Sea Dragons do not have a prehensile tail so they are not able to anchor. These seahorses move very slowly in the water. Males carry the eggs, give birth to them and then both parents take care of the kids. They are native to Australia and endangered.

Interstate 5 leads south to San Diego and on down to the border with Mexico.  To the southwest is Mission Bay in front of Point Loma.  And to the northwest is the beautiful city of La Jolla.

La Jolla Sunset with wine and friends

Filed under: Communities, Nature, Places to visit — Tags: , , — washaw @ 6:00 am

 We always enjoy a late afternoon picnic with friends at La Jolla to include a beautiful sunset.  Yvonne (left in the picture) loves a Temecula wine, Almond Champagne, from Wilson Creek Winery.  I think sunset calls for a good sauvignon blanc like Frog’s Leap.  We have not yet seen a green flash but still looking.
