On Sunday we spent part of the day in Monterey, about 15 minutes away. We visited the much talked about Monterey Bay Aquarium. Yohn and I both thought this would have been more fun to see with the kids, but we enjoyed ourselves nevertheless. We saw....
... a diver in the tank feeding the apparently friendly sharks who only eat certain kinds of food.
...a fish about as big as our son!
...bat rays being fed.
...birds who had been rescued off of the coast.
... a seal who wouldn't keep his sleepy head up long enough for me to get a good picture of him.
We walked around the shops and had lunch at a little restaurant I would never visit again. Seriously even the water was yucky. Unfortunately, a headache crept up on me and we spent much of the afternoon napping and watching movies. We had dinner in our room and enjoyed a restful evening together.
The next morning we took the time to walk the shores of Carmel one more time, collecting "treasures" for our children before we came home. All in all, we had a great trip just spending time together and getting some much needed rest!
