Monterey: Day 1

Last week we spent a couple days in the Monterey Bay Area. We were just there in October for my birthday, but we love it so much we obviously didn't mind going again. 

One of our Christmas gifts from Malisa's parents was a day pass to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Malisa and I had been to the aquarium 3-4 times since we've been married but some of her cousins had never been.

My favorite part of the aquarium is the Sea Otters. The aquarium announced (via text message, in fact) that there were some otters playing in the kelp beneath the lookout deck. It was actually 2 of them, a mom carrying a baby otter. Everyone say in unison, awwwww.... 

I must also mention, the aquarium had a fantastic little cafeteria/restaurant. I'm still thinking about the salami sandwich I had. 

Here are a few photos from our day at the aquarium. Enjoy.
