Baby Beach isn't just for babies

Ninety miles south of our house in Los Angeles is beautiful Dana Point, a midway point to San Diego. Perfect for a day trip or an overnight, Dana Point is for the rich. Thousands of yachts dock at its harbor. Some of the state's most expensive real estate sits on the edges of cliffs with stunning views. The Ocean Institute is nationally known for hands-on marine science and ocean education. You can join whale watching trips.The Pilgrim is a replica of a ocean vessel that to kids looks just like a pirate ship.

But in its in harbor is a small cove with a little beach -- Baby Beach. The waves are calm, the water is shallow and even the littlest tots can wander out to the lifeguard line. Alex practiced surfing (on a boogie board) and Serene dug her way to China.
