Thankfully the whole Bay Area is now a protected aquatic sanctuary and Monterey Bay is now know for it's world famous Aquarium which we could only afford to go to if we didn't ...
... is a docent there and so we had our own private guide to explain everything to us. It has been many years since I have been there and it has changed with a new wing and all the jelly fish exhibits. I took plenty of jellyfish pictures because the colors and the movement are so mesmerizing.
The Beckers joined us in Santa Cruz. We had so much fun. We have travelled so many places together. Jon showed us pictures of some of our old trips when our boys were young. ...
