Monterey Bay Aquarium

{Back to the Aquarium}

Who knew this is what Sand dollars look like in the wild?


Throughout the day, hundreds of dolphins made their way in and out of the bay. Since living in California {for almost 2 months} I have seen whales and dolphins, 
but in my whole life in Oregon, never once.


The weekend after Thanksgiving the Lee crew took a day trip to visit the famous Monterey Bay Aquarium. It was a beautiful, low 70's and perfectly sunny day. We had lunch on a balcony overlooking the whole bay and watched sailboats drift by while enjoying fresh chowder. The aquarium was so nice, I loved how it incorporated the real bay and bay life into the set up exhibits. Maisie had so much fun playing in the kid zone, watching the penguins and standing under the wave/tide simulator {her favorite}. I apologize for the lack of pictures of the more exciting animals {sharks, turtles, penguins} but as anyone knows, trying to take a picture behind glass, of swift moving creatures is hard. So we took tons of video instead, but unfortunately I can't post all of that on here. We just have to make do with the slow/non moving creatures.


  1. Isn't it great? I love Northern California.
