San Diego is visited by the Dalai Lama

On April 18, San Diego was visited by the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet. He will stay in San Diego through today, April 19th, in order to complete his three-part dialogue entitled, “Compassion Without Borders: Science, Peace, Ethics.”

Today, the Dalai Lama will visit the San Diego State University campus in order to deliver another part of his dialogue. He was also able to attend a ceremony in which he was honored at the University of San Diego. He was given the USD Medal of Peace. He informed the students at the universities that they need to focus on environmentalism instead of materialism.

The 76-year-old presented his speech inside a university basketball arena, in which 4,000 people were in attendance. The Dalai Lama will spend a total of five days in the state of California, spreading his message across the state.

Whale seen close to Mission Beach shoreline

Whales are currently in migration from Mexico to Canada. During this migration period, it is not that uncommon to see whale sightings in the ocean at South Mission Beach.

But, it is less likely to see a whale less than 40 yards from the shoreline. Yesterday evening, a gray whale that was determined to be a baby by it’s small size, between eight and 12-feet, was spotted in a shallow area of Mission Beach. The whale was noticed near the lifeguard Tower 17, and stayed stationary for about an hour.

Lifeguards alerted Sea World, just in case the whale was unable to return to sea on it’s own and required assistance. Not too far away from the initial whale spotting was another spotting, this one believed to be the young whale’s mother. After the baby whale was done playing in the shallow area, it returned to deeper parts of the ocean to rejoin it’s mother.

South Mission Beach is a great family destination, where all different types of fun in the sun can take place. If you are considering planning a family trip to the San Diego area, make sure to reserve a condo at South Mission Beach today.
