Day 7: San Diego Day 2!

We woke up and had a leisure morning. Arthur had a business meeting with the hotel manager and then we all went and enjoyed another breakfast at the Waffle Spot! All I have to say is: the huevos rancheros was amazing! Then the hotel manager gave us a tour of one of their remodeled suites, now called the Gidget suite at the hotel. I’m posting pics of the room in case anyone wants to reserve it! It’s fabulous!!! Just call the Kings Inn in San Diego and ask for the Gidget suite if you want to book it! Then we gathered the troops to go check out Cabrillo and the lighthouse. About Cabrillo national park, As per the NPS website: Climbing out of his boat and onto shore in 1542, Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo stepped into history as the first European to set foot on what is now the West Coast of the United States. In addition to telling the story of 16th century exploration, the park is home to a wealth of cultural and natural resources.  We were able to use our America the Beautiful pass to get us in. Woohoo! First of All the views are amazing! And the lighthouse is super cool. The inside was preserved from the late 1800s and its beautiful! Then we went to check out the tide pools, it wasn’t low tide but it was our first contact with the ocean on this trip, so we were happy! The boys loved it! Then we loaded up and headed to La Jolla to the children’s pool to see the sea lions! Apparently it was a designated are for the children of La Jolla to swim in, and the sea lions took it over! We were not disappointed! There were so many in their natural habitat, just laying around sunbathing! It was awesome! Next we headed over to my cousin’s house for dinner and hot tub time. We have maybe met once or twice. But I contacted them and made plans to hang out! They were super cool to hang with and get to know! They were great hostesses! His name is  Chris and his wife is Carole. They have a lovely home in San Diego with the most Amazing view overlooking the city! The boys had a blast in their pool and hot tub. Then We called it a night and went home to rest up! We had to be all loaded up and packed up to head to UCLA for a 10:15 tour the next morning and so I can to get up at 4:30 to make that happen. It was another great day in San Diego!
