My mind is taking a break from school-related blogging to share some pictures with you of my trip to California so far! I’m loving it and I’m so glad I decided to hop a plane last minute. 🙂
Yesterday, after a long day of traveling, we visited San Francisco for a few hours after we landed. We saw the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, and lots of trolleys!
Then we headed to Monterey, where we are staying for my husband’s business trip. I am having so much fun! It is beautiful here! Our hotel is gorgeous and there is so much to do within walking distance (super important, since I do not have a vehicle while Chris is away at his meetings) Today, I visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I even got to touch a starfish. It took me a good 5 minutes or so to get brave enough to touch it. The guy working the exhibit had to count to 3 for me haha. (Mind you, there were lots of 5 years olds around me who had no problem with this part of the aquarium.)
I’m typing this blog post from our hotel room, with the patio doors open. I can hear the harbor seals and otters outside. 🙂 They are really cute and they pop up all over the water! I sat outside at the Monterey Fisherman’s Wharf watching them as I ate lunch. So cool!
I also discovered that Northern California is COLD. The water is freezing but I had to put my feet into the Pacific Ocean at least once while I was here. Ohio was 90 degrees when I left and I only packed sundresses and one pair of cropped jeans. I’ve already bought a San Francisco hoodie, a Monterey sweatshirt, and a long sleeved shirt. Haha I am freezing but not complaining, because it really is beautiful around here!
Thanks for stopping by and letting me share my vacation pictures with you. 🙂
