Misc: USS Hornet, Tidepooling, Baby Tory, Point Bonita Lighthouse

Touring the USS Hornet (Air Craft Carrier) in Alameda. Impressive!

Tidepooling at Fitzgerald Preserve in Half Moon Bay. Fun and gorgeous (the girls AND the preserve).


Visiting Baby Tory, who is now about five months old already! Such a sweetie and it was great to see her, though we did miss getting to see Will, too.

The Point Bonita Lighthouse is one of our favorite spots; we followed our visit there with a trip to a nearby visitor's center and learned a lot about the people (ancient and recent) who have lived in the Marin Headlands and surrounding areas. We also found lots of interesting information about local flora and fauna. In this photo, the girls are practicing tying nautical knots, or... more accurately, pausing briefly to pose in order to humor Mom while they try to follow the directions about how to tie each knot. The Swallows and Amazons kids know far more than we do about such things...!
