I Left My Heart At Huntington Beach | California Trip Day 6 (Part 3)

 Welcome to Huntington California. This is where Mrs. Cottage grew up. Beautiful huh? Ruby's Diner sits at the end of the Huntington Beach Pier, it boasts 360 degree views of the ocean if lucky one can even see dolphins playing off the shore! Next time we will definitely be stopping here!

I think this is my favorite place we have been yet! I love the sand.. the sound of the waves... the water lapping at my feet... the salty breeze in my hair... the sunshine! It's like a little bit of heaven. As soon as our feet hit the sand, we were home. I guess Mr. Cottage has a group of mermaids on his hands.

During World War 2 Huntington Beach was used as a submarine lookout post, a heavy caliber machine gun was positioned at the end of the pier until the end of the war. Hunting Beach also has a one-mile long dog beach, the only one in Orange County. 

Many different kinds of fish can be caught off of Huntington Beach's 1,856-foot long pier including Croaker, Herring, Halibut. The US surf team adopted Huntington Beach as its official hometown in 2005. Huntington Beach also has a sister city, Anjo Japan.

If you happen to find yourselves in Huntington Beach you absolutely have to try Mario's! It's delicious! We went with a dear friend of Mrs. Cottage and here boyfriend for dinner after spending the afternoon at the beach.

I was so sad to leave the beach! Tonight we went back to my Aunt Debbie's and Uncle Doug's house. "Gem" (the Garmin) and "1 of 2" (Mr. Cottage's cellphone) we're as good as ever at getting us lost. Yes, we've given them names. :) 

Keep up with our adventures!  Day 6 (Part 2)

One Ocean Sea World Show

Last year we had the wonderful opportunity to visit Sea World, for the first time in many years. As always it wasn't a letdown!

While there we decided to watch the One Ocean show, dad wanted to sit in the splash zone- we out voted him. Somehow gallons of water in the middle of January and cameras don't seem to go well together.

This show was fun, upbeat and if you happen to sit in the splash zone- wet! These creatures are amazing up close!

It made me wish we had more time to spend here.

They are such amazing creatures.  So huge and powerful - so beautiful.

Every time I see them and makes me love the creatures of the ocean more and more.

Time for a snack. I could use one too, just not raw fish!

Dolphin Show At Sea World

Sea World has to be one of my favorite places! I love how magical it is, like being a kid... anything could happen. I've been here twice in my life, once for my second birthday and the second time for an early birthday present for my 18th birthday. I have to say, it's a great birthday present.

This show was amazing! I absolutely love dolphins so this was spectacular!

This show is so fun, and probably my favorite of all the ones Sea World offers.

I always liked dolphins but I really fell in love with them after Sea World. They taught me a lot about marine life and made me passionate about them.

They are creative and smart and love to have fun.

I could not believe their agility and their relationship with one another.

It made me want to study more about them, which is a good thing!


Look at that adorable face.  Such an amazing animal!

Such strength.  I had no idea they could jump so high or flip like this before going.

I love this one, it l…

SeaWorld | California Trip Day 5

Darling it's better, down where it's wetter, under the sea. Admit it. You heard Sebastian from little mermaid's voice in your head didn't you?

Today we are heading to SeaWorld!

The last time we were here was for my second birthday.

There aren't a lot of people here because it rained this morning. I feel a lot better this morning.

But I can't smell anything. Grrrrrr! This darn cold morphs into something else everyday! We are just a skip from the beach, Mrs. Cottage and Brianna keep saying it smells wonderful. I can't smell anything so I don't know, but I can taste it! That's better than nothing I guess.

By the way, those cleaner fish in the picture up above were awesome! Seriously I want some!

There are so many amazing creatures here! Some I wouldn't want to meet in the wild, though. Some of the fish were absolutely stunning!

This pretty bird just was hanging out watching us as we said hello to the sea lions.  He didn't mind getting close en…
