Aquarium~ Day 3

We woke up on this morning to a very gloomy day.

No blue sky peeking through.

This is the ocean after all.

The weather is less than predictable.

So we decided to make the most of our day and head to the other side of the bay

to the Monterrey Bay Aquarium.

Another one of my favorite places.



There is beauty around every corner.

Lily's favorite spot were the touch pools.

Really how could this not be a favorite.




The jellies were another favorite


and they are so fun to photograph.



And then we came upon these

there were two of these turtles in the tank.

Each one bigger than me.

Lily refused to look at them and only wanted to go back to the jellyfish.

Really?

How could one not be impressed with this?

Oh well, to each his own.

This was my favorite part.





The other Lily was with us.

Our imaginary friend

that has to have the same name

and causes lots of confusion in our home.

But look at that there she is.

No wonder her name is Lily too.


Taking a little rest.


After the aquarium we went out to lunch.
Flowers grow in the bay like nowhere else.






I love this cheesy grin.




Lots of photo opportunities on the way back to the car.








A little nap occurred on the way home.

and then we started the next part of our day!
