It seems like eons ago that we first arrived in San Diego from Avalon (Catalina Island) on Saturday, October 22. The overnight passage from Avalon was quiet and lovely, and most importantly, uneventful. Coming into San Diego, we rounded Point Loma, giving wide berth for the abundant kelp paddies that gum up the area, and headed for the Police docks tucked in just past the channel at Shelter Island.
We had planned to be in San Diego for a little over a week to complete the battery project, the internet project and finally the solar panel installation project (which we had not, at that point, taken off the table). But first, my parents were coming down from Sacramento to join us in celebrating Finley’s 4th birthday. We had planned to take the boys to Legoland for Finley’s birthday, and Finley being a late October birthday boy, we found that Legoland had a special event, “Brick or Treat” the weekend just prior to Halloween, fun! The boys happily donned their newly-acquired Star Wars costumes (Elliott as Kylo Ren and Finley as a Young Jedi) and hopped, skipped and jumped through Legoland’s entrance.
