We left L.A. early morning yesterday to start driving up north. First stop: Monterey! The very first thing we noticed this morning was the cooler weather. On our last day in LA it was 42 C outside…we were shopping and had to run from store (AC) to store (AC). And then on our drive up it got worse, when we stopped for lunch and checked the temp it was actually a crazy 46 C outdoors. Hot!! Felt like stepping into an oven = not very pleasant. But Sam said “-wow, this is the nicest thing I’ve ever felt”. Both kids are very unbothered by the heat. ;)
But in Monterey we had clouds! And it was only 32 C (at the most) which was totally manageable.
Looking to see if they could spot some fish.
We took the beach promenade at Cannery Row which was so beautiful!
And when we saw these cliffs it seemed like a really good idea to climb them. It was more straining than we thought though! So it got a little bit sweaty there at the end. ;)
But Elis loved this “adventure” and thought he was being so cool sitting all by himself on those rocks.
Sam found these shoes a few days ago and he is obsessed with them. Cats and rainbows!
This is how family pics turn out with one of the kids asleep and the other one about five seconds from falling asleep too. Haha.
Lunch today was In-n-Out!! A personal fav.
Haha Elis! Yesterday he was not feeling great in the car and would not keep anything down. But being the foodie he is, he kept asking for food the whole day and we felt so bad just giving him nothing at first and then very little. Today he made up for the lack of food so yes, this was him at lunch.
Then we hit a big playground, wore the kids tired so they could rest their feet in the stroller while we walked around Fisherman’s Wharf.
Look at all the jellyfish!! Sam made sure I got a picture of it.
And the seals! I’m embarrassingly bad at this stuff so my nephew Karl will have to verify that they are in fact seals. ;)
The look on Sams face when he discovered them!! He really loved them and how they were playing with eachother in the water. We stood there looking at them for the longest time…Sam didn’t even notice all the bird poop on the fence (once he noticed he was done watching them).
Such a cool place!
Ending the day at our fav place Target. ;)
We love the whole package…the store AND the cool red racecars that provide some nice entertainment.
Thanks for today, Monterey!
