    First thing this morning I met my roommate who had arrived late and offered me a free ticket to go to the Aquarium, yes please!! I felt it was too expensive to go but I was definitely there for free!!

    It was well worth it, I loved the whole place. I found the jellyfish and the sea otters particularly amazing. They run free 'behind the …

It was another fun ride, Nathan leading the way, pedalling hard with Rach enjoying the scenery and challenging the pedalling speed.

    ... t too bad (I was wet, but not soaked, and I spared the camera). The crabs are a riot, but the starfish are my favorite. I probably spent two hours climbing around on the rocks looking for tidal pools. It was wonderful.

    Another fun day! It’s funny to think how different the ocean experience is on the west coast compared to the east. I didn’t see one “beach” that would have been comfortable to lay out on a ...
