We had a nice picnic today after Church we went to Point Vicente in Palos Verdes Peninsula. The boys love the ocean, especially Jacob who owns about every kind of whale that exists. So we thought we'd try our hand at whale watching. Also, this is the same area where Marineland was located.

Accdg to Wikipidea
Marineland of the Pacific was a public oceanarium and tourist attraction located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula coast above the Pacific Ocean in Los Angeles County, California, USA. It operated from 1954 through 1987, when it was purchased by the owners of SeaWorld, who moved Marineland's popular Killer Whales to their San Diego facility and then abruptly closed the Marineland.

We didn't see any whales but the "experts" with binoculars had seen 5 today

Beautiful weather for a picnic, but a bit windy.

We passed by Trump Golf course on the way home.

Beautiful driving range

You know I grew up in Simi Valley right? I totally remember Marineland! How funny is that? I guess I never knew the history. Interesting.
