Every year we camp at our favorite spot in the Santa Monica Mountains, Point Mugu. Right along a beach cove with our own private sycamores, yucca, sand dunes and canyons.
We set up our tent and rushed on down to the beach
Our own hidden passageway
We stayed, got soaked, got hungry. So we made our way back to camp. Jarom and Bella of course needed to bring their newfound friends with them.
Next morning.... back at the beach :) This time at Leo Carrillo, where we can find some tidepools.
Oey liked to climb all the big rocks
Jarom and Bella....
were on a mission
Gold! They got some cute little fellas.
We love camping here because you get the best of both beach and mountain. So of course we when we heard about a seasonal waterfall we were on our way up La Jolla Canyon.
Target... Aim... Fire...! I made the mistake of showing the kids how much fun weeds can be, they chased me up the whole mountain.
And here we are, the seasonal waterfall. Guess it runs for one season only. We decided to go a little further, there had to be some water somewhere.
Success!!! Found a little trickle of a stream and pond, full to the brim with little bugs and tadpoles.
Daddy showing Oey how to cook a tofu pup. One landed in the fire, anther one in the dirt and the last one finally made it to his mouth.
Oh, look. A little tree creature, who ended up getting stuck.
Goodbye to our favorite campground. We'll be back next year.
