A few more walks along the Pacific Ocean and a last look at the quickly growing Anna's Hummingbird chicks before we leave.

We left Oceanside on Groundhog's Day and headed south toward San Diego. We took a walk along the cave and cliff area of La Jolla which brought some interesting sightings.

|Kendall Frost Reserve|
We are now staying at Campland on the Bay along the north shore of Mission Bay in Northwest San Diego. We are adjacent to the Kendall Frost Biological Reserve that is teeming with waterfowl and shorebirds, herons and egrets, and often a surprise or two.

Looking forward to some exploring of the Bay Area before moving inland to the desert and the Salton Sea.
