Monterey Bay Aquarium

Over the weekend Josh, Allie, and I went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for Allies Birthday! So here we go with only a select few of the 270 pictures I took haha!

Monterey Bay

We had to stop so the geese could cross the road, don't worry they made it safely
The Aquarium! There was a huge line and a TON of people there for Dia De Ninos.
Josh bored/still asleep waiting in line.

Allie fielding her birthday calls while waiting in line.
Meee too! I was wearing my hood because I didn't want the seagulls to poo on me haha
Almost Inside... I had to pee so bad, and I was freezing, so the wait seemed even longer than it really was.The Kelp Forest! This was so cool, it was 2 stories high!Penguin! There were a lot more but they were all swimming too fast for me to get a good picture of them.Sea Otter!! So Cute!
Joshy and I :)
The Birthday Girl and I! Super cool looking Sea Horse!
Another one!SHARRRRRRRK!Sand Dollars! I had no idea this was how they grew/lived.
Dory and her friends!Jelly Fish!After the Aquarium, we got in the car and drove along the coast. We stopped at a scenic overlook to eat lunch and when Josh got his sandwich tupper out, it was full of water from the ice chest! Apparently it wasn't water proof.... so we had to share my sandwich haha.
There were a lot of really beautiful stops along the coast, but this one was pretty neat. This is the Lone Cypress, it is famous because it randomly grew out of rocks and it is 250 years old!A the Lone Cypress stop there were tourists that were trying to hand feed a squirrel near me, but I wasn't really paying attention because I was taking pictures. Well, the next thing I know, the squirrel is at my feet ready to bite my bright pink painted toes that it thinks are food, I just about peed my pants!
Josh sleeping the whole way home.

After we got back home we met up with some other friends at The Cantina in Santa Rosa for dinner, it was deeelish! Then Josh and I came home, watched a few episodes of cops, and went to bed. We were gone for over 12 hours (with almost 6 spent driving) but it was well worth it, and of course, another fun day spent at the California coast!

Hope you all had a great weekend too!
