While the kids were playing in the waves we saw two dorsal fins in the wave just cresting behind them and got a little scared. Dorsal fins made us think of sharks. We yelled to the kids to come up the beach but quickly saw that they weren't sharks but dolphins. They jumped up out of the water and did a little flip for us as if we were at marine world or something. We of course didn't get any pictures but I did catch a moment of video of them as they were further down the beach. They kept jumping clear out of the waves all along the shore.
But our Happy 7 year old had a birthday wish fulfilled.
We decided to take a different route home and drove north up through San Francisco and then across the Golden Gate Bridge. It actually didn't add much if any extra time to the trip home.
The kids didn't seem to mind how long the trip home was they were enjoying watching The Princess Bride as we drove home.
What a Great little Vacation trip!
