Chula Vista, CA
January 24, 2017
It was a very rainy, stormy, and windy week-end.
Thank goodness the owners of this MH were not at home and didn't have any pets inside.
Several eucalyptus trees were uprooted in the park including the one behind our MH. It only brushed the back and back driver side...no major damage.
Imagine the smile on our faces when we woke up to partly sunny skies Tuesday morning. We were in the road and headed north about 23 miles to the beaches of La Jolla. La Jolla is within the northern city limits of San Diego occupying about 7 miles of spectacular coastline.
Our lighthearted escapades to La Jolla have become a favorite for me when we are here. It's all about the sea lions and seals, the Brown Pelicans and other shore birds, and the ocean which was especially wild this day thanks to a high surf warning.
|The sea wall, built in the 1930s, was suppose to be a safe place for children to swim.|
Every winter, the children's pool area is closed off to the public for pupping season. The seals and sea lions take over.
Oh, what a face !
If you have read our blog in years past, you know how much I love watching the Brown Pelicans. These beautiful and fun birds could keep my camera happy for hours.
Notice the dark brown/black neck, bright red throat pouch and white head tinged with yellow? It's breeding season !
After Tuesday, the most perfect, awesome and funnest weather we had experienced this year set in for the rest of our stay in San Diego. Unfortunately, Joe and I and the pups didn't have a chance to enjoy one single day of it ! We woke up to a sick Dover on Wednesday. We took her to Bay South Veterinary Hospital for a check. She got medicines to stop the throwing-up and we brought her home with the understanding if she wasn't better to bring her back. She didn't eat Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday. On Friday, she was still throwing-up and not eating so it was back to the hospital. She was admitted and spent three nights there with a diagnosis of acute pancreatitis. South Bay is a great vet hospital with 24 hour staff. While she was there, Joe and I became quite ill with the flu. I spent three days in bed with fever, chills and very upset tummy ! Joe wasn't much better.
So happy to get the last week behind us ! We arrived in Tucson yesterday...looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new friends soon. Also there are the doctor visits and bus "stuff" to check off the list.
Until next time...
HAPPY TRAILS !
