    Watching the Seals

    by travelgirl3 Written Oct 17, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you visit Imperial Beach, be sure to walk to the end of the Pier. Look out into the water and wait. Be patient. Within a couple of minutes, you'll start to see seals! The swim alone, and in groups, and are constantly surfacing, and rolling around. They were great fun to watch!

    Unfortunately, people also fish from the Pier, and while we were there, a seal got hooked. The fisherman had to cut his line, but the hook remained it the seal. I'm not sure why they allow fishing from the Pier, as it is certainly hazardous to both the seals and the surfers.

    Low water plants, No grass

    We don't get a lot of rain here in San Diego and are very into the environment so we have adapted to our conditions instead of fighting against it.

    You will see a WONDERFUL WIDE variety of different succulents and low water plants. I think they are beautiful and chances are you will see a ton of things you have never seen before. Enjoy.

    What is that tree?

    Sometimes they have very exotic (for me) trees in their backyards - what is that tree with big fruits?
    It's an avocado, REED AVOCADO. They are the biggest and best tasting of any avocado
    I’ve ever had.

    I was surprised how many kinds of various plants do grow around San Diegans (is it correct in English ? :-) houses?
    Sometimes they grow in flower pots.

    Do flowers bloom there all year round?

    by matcrazy1 Updated Jun 16, 2003

    Hmm... I don't know but in April/May most flowers seem to bloom in San Diego. As I know that some of them bloom from spring till fall (autumn), am I wrong?

    Just blooming in April

    It seems they love cacti - I am not sure where are more cacti: in San Diego's yards or in Arizona. What do you think?

    Cats of San Diego? There are a lot of big wild cats in world famous San Diego ZOO but there are many more cats (house cats) in their homes, I suppose.
    Hmmm... I have never seen any mice there :-).

    KORTNEY - what does this name mean?
