Monterey Bay Aquarium

There isn't a whole lot to say about this place except that it was amazing. I highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of going. It was full of amazing exhibits that struck children and adults with wonder and awe. It was very special seeing our kids eyes light up as they watched the jelly fish. My son loved the otters and they had a display where he was able to feel real otter fur and touch an otter skull. I was worried it would scare him but he loved it. I think it was the way the helper showed it all to him that made the difference. If you make it to Monterey you have to go down to the fisherman's wharf and grab some clam chowder down there. They literally have "Chowder Wars" on the wharf. They have people shoving samples of chowder at you. It's great! Almost a meal just getting to your meal- lol!

Here's some pictures of the aquarium.

The last picture I posted is a picture of an albatross that they had at the aquarium. Did you know that an albatross is the only bird who's wingspan can exceed 11 feet! Yes, elleven feet! That's a BIG bird! Hope you've enjoyed the photos!
