Monterey Bay Aquarium-the starfish and the shore

April 2014
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!
