Happy Independence Day

A travel blog entry by kirsty_murray


... Michael Jackson tribute band who came on after everybody sang the National Anthem and Happy Birthday to Monterey. This was a little odd to us but it's what they do. The band were great. They sounded so much like the real thing. After sitting and listening for a while we decided to browse the food stalls. After walking past the steak sandwich stall to find that they were sold out we quickly made our way to the next stall and ordered two bowls of Chicken Teriyaki. The bowls came ...

Big Surrin' Checkin' Seas

A travel blog entry by wiscampsin


... excellent views. After further review, I agree with my friend Dustin who said it was the best drive in the continental U.S. We certainly can’t argue with that.

It is a must-drive area, but not necessarily a must-hike - the views of the ocean are where it’s at.

It costs money just to breathe the air down here and walk the sacred grounds of Pebble Beach?! As if we were going ...

Lilly time again!

A travel blog entry by carol_fred


... we had made reservations at the Adobe Inn - the hotel that backs up to Josh and Wanda's backyard. They gave us the room that looks directly into their yard and Lilly was thrilled. She came running out of the house and jumped on the swings yelling "hi" to us!

Wanda had to work late, so we met her at the TreeHouse Restaurant. We had taken a picture of this restaurant on our walk the last time we were here and ...

Monterey Bay Aquarium

A travel blog entry by katieball


... the sea otters. There are 4 otters in the aquarium, and they all came as orphans from the wild. They are called Rosa, Gidget, ivy and Kit. They were very playful. They have the finest fur in the animal kingdom but they have to constantly clean it to keep themselves warm. Sea Otters are also interesting because they are one of the few mammals that use tools, for example they use rocks to smash the shells of crabs to get to their ...
