California Adventure - Monterey Bay

Oh my!  Monterey Bay!  I took a LOT of pictures here.  I can't show you all the wonders of the aquarium, but I can give you a little taste. And I can tell you that if you plan to see anything other than the Monterey Bay Aquarium you are going to need at least TWO days in Monterey.  We'll be back.



By the time I finish this California adventure series you'll know that our family loves nature and animals of all kinds.


 Also, we love the Beatles, 


Bright colors,



rays,


penguins,


and sea otters!  Especially sea otters.



And the unusual.






The jellies exhibit was amazing.  But I don't want to see these guys without the glass separating me from them.




My favorite shots of the day?  

Dolphins in the bay free and wild!


And sea lions in a pile at the wharf giving each other kisses.




When we finally left the aquarium it was time to eat...again. 



And this was our view out the window of the restaurant on Fisherman's Wharf. Now that's a vacation memory!



We all got new jackets on the Fisherman's Wharf - out of necessity - in the middle of summer!  And we wore them for the next three days.  I love California.  It's snuggling weather in the summertime on the Pacific Coast!



I have not worn my Monterey sweat shirt a single time since we returned home, but today is a rainy, cool taste of fall, so maybe tomorrow.

Much love, laughter and dreams of fall,

Laura
