We got a late start on our journey today.  Both Marta and I didn't wake up till 9:30am.  Marta prepared french toast (yum!) while I played with my plants and got everything situated.  After we took showers and packed it was time to hit the road!  Dad wished us farewell and our first stop was right down the road.  I remembered this morning that I was completely out of hair puddy!  I know, it sounds like a barbie move, but I was looking pretty shaggy.  So we picked up the puddy and a bottle of water at CVS pharmacy. 

After a few hours of driving, we started to see signs of the coast.  At this time we were both a little hungry and stopped at In-and-Out.  Since it was between 3 and 4 we both opted for double stacks so we wouldn't have to eat a late dinner.  So tasty!

Around 4pm we finally saw the Monterey bay.  The sand dunes looked beautiful with the red ice plants and the sun combing through the clouds.  We pulled off the 101 S at Del Monte blvd exit to take a few snap shots.  It was  so beautiful! 

After chilling (like freezing) on the sand, we made our final half mile to the Holiday Inn Express.  We were greeted at the front counter by a man in his fifties.  He told us the clouds had just arrived an hour before we did.  Dammit!    Now we're getting comfortable in our room and ready for our day tomorrow! 

Monterey Bay Aquarium here we come!
