This morning we finally got to take Michael to the cove! He absolutely loves watching the waves. We didn't have the chance to go down to the beach towards the water, but Michael still loved just watching from the benches above.
Michael's never actually been into the ocean, since he doesn't know how to swim. Although he loves to be in the pool, he's only been in the shallow end where it's very calm. Therefore, actually taking him into the ocean is really risky, and we have to make sure we're keeping a good eye on him so he doesn't try and run into the water (which he's been really good at lately). He's only walked with his toes in the water a couple times, and he absolutely loves it. Later this month when we have more time I plan to take him to La Jolla Shores so that he can get his feet wet again :)
