Field Trip

Yesterday, we took our girls on a field trip to Pt. Fermin Lighthouse in San Pedro. We had a wonderful time, we had a picnic at the tables in the park and then we walked around the edges of the park looking down along the coast.

We were able to see seven sea lions on a rock below.

While we waited for the next tour of the lighthouse, a volunteer in the gift shop offered to take us over to the little gardens on the property. He had planted most of the plants himself. He took us through every bed. He even pulled off leaves and let us try several of the edible plants.

This is the kitchen in the lighthouse. There is a wooden high chair in the background.

On the other side of the kitchen was this washing machine. The tour guide explained to our girls how clothes were washed during that period.

The sewing machine was in the master bedroom along with this rocking chair.

The girls were able to dress up in keeper clothes.

We were able to go up to the tower of the lighthouse. This is the view looking up the coast to Palos Verdes.

Rachel feeding the very friendly squirrel, he ran up to us as we left the lighthouse.

A very enjoyable day in Southern California!
