    This was the Summer of the Humpback on California’s Central Coast for me. I started the summer at the Family Nature Summit staying at the Asilomar in Pacific Grove.

I saw spouts, flukes, and one incredible breach – where the whale comes straight out of the water with no warning only to flop back down with a tremendous splash. At the time, I thought: “Nothing…

  • How to Spend Your Last Days of Summer Vacation in OC

    19 Aug 2014 | 6:31 am
    I’m counting down the end of summer vacation in OC — not because I want school to start — only because school is starting for us after Labor Day.  I remember being the mom without school-age kids who couldn’t wait for the “big kids” to get back to school and out of my parks so we could get back to our quiet play routines.
