Jellyfish experience at the Monterey Aquarium was fabulous! #blue Glowing grass of the Pacific Coast Highway. African Penguin posing for me at the Monterey Bay Aquarium💙 I took this picture on the 17 mile drive. Frog Pond is a dry pond, but a lovely 3/4 mile loop trail. Oaks, predominantly featured, twist in a bower over the path. A lot of traffic noise, but a peaceful place, in spite of it. Fisherman's Wharf, shop, eat, walk, sightsee, enjoy the sea life. Jellies are such interesting characters, the more you watch them, the more you notice new and amazing features, movements, even personalities. #colorful I could stare at the jellyfish for days on end.

NO EDITING: there were lots of those little men... #California #EndlessSummer Early morning and on the far east side of Fisherman's Wharf, one can get a totally different perspective of Steinbeck's beloved Fisherman's Wharf. Jelly Fish. Absorb the blue if you wanna be cool.! Beautiful view from the park. #beachbound Beautiful display of jellyfish @ Monterey Aquarium South of the wharf Monterey,CA is an Awesome place to run, walk, bike, paint, kayaking, take pictures, take your whole family to be in the water, play with the sand and lots of places to go eat great food!
#Beachbound A view of Monterey during an overcast sunset. #roadtrip #goldenhour Behind the museum entrance, Pacific House has a gorgeous courtyard. A small fountain with koi sits in the center, Adobe walls all around, and shady trees. A quiet, Pacific, rest place.
So many lovely flowers, even in the winter! My first whale sighting! Cannery Row- formerly the west coasts largest sardine producing area, now focusing on hooking tourists. Have been on their tours twice so far. They are professional and the boats are good size - easy to get around from side to side (I always seem to be on the side where the whales were not!!) #localgem Cute seals playing and sunning. Grilled oysters with Japanese BBQ Sauce! #delicious #food #foodie West Coast Style Cold Water Lobster Roll! #delicious #foodporn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monterey_Bay Seeing the jellies in a new perspective, just a captivating.

(April 2017) Mural near cannery row Situated in a large yet unassuming warehouse on Cannery Row, this was the most amazing place to take my children; even teenagers are awed by the plethora of exhibits. A common sight along the streets of this quaint city. Very well-made wind chimes. All of them very pretty . Great souvenirs in all the shops over there., From the Love this place! Who knew that sardines can move in such fluid, musical motion? Simply captivating. Eerie resident of the Aquarium. That's a seahorse, not a weed! Visit the aquarium. Be a part of a community capturing wonderful jellyfish! One of the outdoor observation decks at the aquarium and outdoor pools. Interactive displays and exhibits, telescopes, and information galore, plus lots of great looking aquariums and exhibits.
Although I tend to not like keeping animals in enclosures, large aquariums can be invaluable resource to educating the general public about the importance of protecting our oceans and the many types of marine life. NO EDITING: this surfer cought series of waves. The sun was awake but the weather was freezing, and it was July.... :) Popular marina destination offering numerous eateries & shopping, plus views of sea lions & otters. A must while in the Carmel/Monterey area...especially their Sunday brunch. Good aquarium with some wonderful displays. The jellyfish were stunning! Throwback to one of my most favorite places. This aquarium is truly one of a kind and deserves a spot on anyone's bucket list . Secret: if you are aaa member, take advantage of a great discount. Fish and Chips. Another wonderful dish from Cindy's Waterfront! Burata Tartine! #delicious #foodporn Great views of the bay. The cioppino and chowder are great too! #seafood #montereybay #restaurant Watching this was quite relaxin. the beach is superbe Early morning sunrises in Monterey, California are so peaceful. Before the workers are up and you can only hear the sound of the ocean (and the sea lions). One of the best reasons to go to Monterey is for their clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl. Am I right? ;)

This one red boat stood out amongst all the others 20,000 leagues under the Sea scared the piss out of me as a child, but the new Tentacles exhibit at the Aquarium is nothing short of awesome!

#USA #Monterey #ocean #LKsAwayDays Fireplace made entirely of conch shells. Lovely place to have Sunday brunch. Fisherman's wharf in Monterey Fun Place to hang out. Great shops, beautiful ocean view and good eats. One of the best aquariums I've been to. There's something marvelous about looking at sea life next to a loud and angry ocean. Cannery Row is a great place to visit also, some shopping and dining, including fresh seafood.. Yum! Theres places to eat overseeing the bay and hotel rooms overlooking the bay also. View from behind Ed Ricketts old laboratory Pomegranate Marg. This place has great Mexican food and drinks, neat décor, and awesome views of the bay. We wanted just a light dinner, and the Fish Hopper's The View from here. Clam chowder in sourdough bread bowl available at each restaurant along the Old Wharf.

(April 2017) On a trip that we took down the coast of California, we stopped in Monterey and walked along the coastline. Came across these two beautiful starfish on a rock. Fisherman's Wharf is a historic wharf in Monterey, California, United States. Used as an active wholesale fish market into the 1960s, the wharf eventually became a tourist attraction as commercial fishing tapered off in the area.

Spend the day at Monterey Bay Aquarium and enjoy a delightful lunch at Cindy's Waterfront at Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Stunning expansive ocean front views compliment the divine gourmet menu!
Try the Monterey Bay Calamari with Castroville artichokes, With gulls calling and the mix of old and new buildings, it's possibly to mentally picture the landscape as it would have been in Steinbeck's Cannery Row
