Yesterday marked the hottest day ever recorded in San Diego and LA.
I'm still getting used to the idea that we have no agenda. No children to keep busy or others to plan around. We can get up when we want, drive to an area that catches our eye, and stay as long as we wish.

While the tide is out, the rocky crevices hold an amazing array of sea life.
Coral, sea anemones, crabs...

Later in the afternoon we drove down to Point Loma, near the Southern tip of California. From here you can see the San Diego skyline in one direction, and Tijuana, Mexico in another direction.
On September 28, 1542 (exactly 468 years ago today), Jean Rodriguiz Cabrillo became the first European to set foot on the West Coast of the United States.
