At the Monterey Bay Aquarium
Such a nice variety of starfish-this purple was the most colorful all day
on the move
There are a couple in the actual ocean that you can spot from the balconies
maybe not the best camouflage
The aquarium has more than just fish and starfish
Sea otters are super cute-reminds me of my cats-here they are playing with ice cubes in the big bucket.
there is a lot of ocean viewing from the aquarium
This is the pool of easy starfish spotting
There is an exhibit that showing the waves crashing into the shore. It is always crowded with kids shrieking and screaming. This was the first time I realized you could see it from up above-ah ha!
If you have time, eat at the restaurant-you know you are getting sustainable fish!
Fancy cream puff desserts with mini fruit bars-nice!
Unforgettable campfire pie. Cookie crust with a marshmallow fluff topping, marbled with chocolate, almond and caramel.
The restaurant has great ocean views for wildlife spotting.
is this a sea otter or just a rock?
Lovely California poppies in downtown Monterey
And this is how you find the Tentacles exhibit!
