@laurenfinley and I took a trip this weekend to Monterey Bay, CA. Here is what we did:
  1. The first thing anyone should do when they visit Monterey is go to the aquarium.

    These things to the right look like they are straight out of a Dr. Seuss book.
  2. We then walked along the shoreline, through Cannery Row and past Fisherman's Wharf.

  3. In the afternoon we took a trip down 17-Mile Drive.

    The coast is beautiful and the drive is worth it, even if the Lone Cypress is a little overrated.
  4. We watched Saturday's sunset from the rocky shore.

  5. On Sunday, we hiked in gorgeous Point Lobos State Reserve.

    Pictures can not do this place justice. We saw harbor seals, sea otters, and a peregrine falcon.
