With the weather slowly deteriorating, we tried to come up with a good indoor activity today. The Monterey Bay Aquarium is always a fun trip for Sophie (and the rest of us). Nanny had one more day off, so of course she came along. On the way there, we stopped at Moss Landing to visit Uncle Mick and see the real thing first.
Uncle Mick had some fresh-caught crab for us. Yum yum.
Sophie was not too thrilled about the crab though. However, she enjoyed watching the seagulls fighting over some of the broken pieces. We also spotted sea otters and sea lions in the wild before we drove on to the aquarium. I hope this is not a total picture overload. I tried to pick the best ones.
Sophie enjoying the touching pool. Learning how sea otters eat abalone.
We could not get enough of the jellyfish exhibit.
A sunfish - odd looking creature.
Beautiful sea turtle
Sophie's favorite: the hammerhead shark
