Our first stop was the Monterey Bay Aquarium
This is a huge tank with lots of different creatures
Here you can touch different things -star fish, sea cucumbers, hermit crabs, etc.. They both loved this, although at one point Nathan was more interested in the metal filters that stuck out of the water.
This is the deep sea tank. That big blur is a huge tuna that kept zipping by getting faster and faster
(I have tons of pictures of all the cool creatures. I'll be putting them in a photo book when I have more time. I'll try and post a link to it when I'm done)
After the aquarium we went to dinner - the thing that instigated our trip to Monterey - Bubba Gumps. We were able to get a table quickly and enjoyed our food - Buckets of boat trash and Mahi Mahi - all very yummy!
After dinner we went into the candy store there on Cannery Row- lots of fun stuff there. Then off to the hotel. The kids didn't know it, but we had a full day ahead of is the next day.
