Out & About

It’s always tempting to skip the itsy bitsy teeny tiny little neighborhood parks in favor of large city parks, state parks, and national parks. If you do, though, you risk not finding something that’s pretty neat.

Recently I was in an unexplored (for me) area of La Jolla and found Kellogg Park:

Kellogg Park is mostly sand and playground equipment. However, look at some of the cool stuff I found in the middle of the playground equipment:

That reading material, of course, is not for the children playing. It’s for the adults, and I wasn’t the only adult standing around reading it, although I was the only one taking pictures of it!

      Just a couple hundred feet away is a shallow spot in the water that stays warmer than the surrounding waters. There is a colony of leopard sharks that reside there. Tall people (like me) often walk out in the water to where the sharks so they can say they walked amongst the sharks. Others go snorkeling to see them. Regrettably, I’ve done neither.

      Stingray, being flat like they are, like to lie on the sand in shallow waters, which is exactly where children like to play. If you’re going to walk around in the water, shuffle your feet to scare the stingray away.

      Yes, but you should some of the really interesting, so to speak, sculptures in other children’s parks. I was at a park in Coronado a few years ago and a little boy was pointing at this dastardly creature sculpture and crying. I understood why. It was horrible! Who thinks of some of this stuff?

    Loved your videos 🙂 The windows actually broke once? !!! I was thinking how lovely it is the waves coming up against them like that, & then you say they once broke!!

    Hey, Merry Christmas Russel Ray. I’ve enjoyed coming by. I know I’m not regular, but I love your site, most especially for Zoey 🙂

    I adore the wee parks. Always get quite animated whenever I discover a new one I have not explored yet. Stupendous post, loved reading the signs. Redolent of many of the signs at the parks here. Hum…no warnings at watching your swim speed, I see. If one swims too quickly here, one tends to collide with rays, finding one’s self all tangled up in aquatic wings and very aesthetic beaming yellowish eyes. It is rather interesting. They are quite velvety creatures. Of course, the shuffle is always a good idea, though then one has disgruntled crabs to contend with that have been nesting in the sand, ah whale. A happy New Year to you!

    Cheers,
