  • Why Every Southern California Kid Should Go Whale Watching

    3 Mar 2015 | 6:47 am
    Dana Wharf Whale Watching invited my family on a whale watching trip at the end of February. Every time we go whale watching with Dana Wharf is a different experience. The boat is always sturdy and the captain and crew are always accomodating — but we never see the same thing twice.  March is time for the Dana Point Festival of Whales and a special opportunity to catch the gray whales migrating past our coast. Why Every Southern California Kid Should Go Whale Watching: Being out on the Pacific is an opportunity to connect with our local ocean. It shapes our weather. It supports our…

    My friend, Christie, texted me about the Huell Howser Exhibit at Chapman University when it first opened to the public in March 2014. The anniversary of Huell’s passing (January 2013) reminded me to go this year.

It aired on my local PBS station and brought back some great memories of episodes and featured commentary by so many who loved him.I highly recommend watching the documentary before visiting the exhibit.

  • Are There Any Parks with Lights in South OC?

    9 Feb 2015 | 6:21 am
    Are there any parks with lights in south OC? A longtime reader asked me this question about Mission Viejo parks long ago and it just came up again in a FB group of moms.  So I finally did my research to put together a list. The simple answer is: NO parks in South County are designed with lights on the playgrounds for play at night. Parks in the cities of: Aliso Viejo, Lake Forest, Laguna Hills, and Laguna Niguel close at sunset (with the exception a few parks in Aliso Viejo that have path lighting and are officially open until 10pm). OC Parks regional parks close at sunset, unless you are…

    The hardest thing about a trip to Calafia Beach is pronouncing it! It’s part of San Clemente State Beach, except you’ll pass the State Beach entrance on your left and continue to the parking lot at the end of Calafia. It’s a skinny strand of beach, so you’ll definitely need to watch the tides to time your visit. Location: Take Interstate 5 to San Clemente. If you are coming from the north, exit at Avenida Calafia (some maps show the spelling as Avenida “Califia” with an “i” – but all the signs say: “Calafia”), continue straight…
