    Once upon a time, in a land far away . . . a mom had time to think. (I know. This NEVER happens. Even in fairytale world. Just play along.)

So even if Googla was right about things where Googla lived — she wasn’t always right about things where the mom lived. But the mom never told her…

Unfortunately, the rain didn’t stick around long enough to keep them green for much longer. I’m holding out hope for April showers! Let me…

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…
