This Christmas we tried something different, we took a family trip to Monterey! I went kayaking for the first time, explored the Monterey Bay Aquarium, strolled down Cannery Row and even saw the Hobbit. The jellyfish were my favorite, both at the aquarium and in the water just below our kayaks! I didn’t bring my camera so you’ll have to take my word for it on the jellies in the ocean, but they were super cool! They were sea nettle jellies and they were orange.
My favorite part of the Hobbit was how they included the same song the dwarves sing in the original cartoon version of the film. On the trip I had my first mani-pedicure, tried grits for the first time and apple pie with cheese on top too! -It sounds gross, but I actually liked it. It was really great spending time with my family and living in the little town of Monterey -even if it was just for a few days. The shops are quaint and the ocean is so close.
