June 18/Day 169 - Grunion Run in Santa Monica

The Grunion Run takes place during the months May, June and July along the coast of Southern California. We went to watch the Grunion Run in Santa Monica beach around midnight. We had a glimpse of a few grunions. This picture was taken at around 12 am.

California grunion are a species of marine fish found primarily along the coast of Southern California and Northern Baja California. They are justifiably famous for their unique spawning behavior. Grunion spawn completely out of the water and lay their eggs on many sandy beaches in California. Shortly after high tide, on specific nights, sections of these beaches sometimes are covered with thousands of grunion dancing about on the sand. The popularity of these grunion runs means that some nights there are more people lining the beaches than grunion in the run. (Source)

May 28/Day 148 - Strawberry Picking

 We are lucky to get juicy, ripe strawberries throughout the year at farmer's markets here in Southern California. Some farms allow you to come in to the strawberry fields, pluck them straight from the strawberry plant and enjoy to your heart's content. You could also take them back home along with you. We had a great time at the strawberry patch during the weekend, plucking and eating strawberries!
