The Monterey Hotel, a cool turn-of-the-century Victorian building.
Got a free upgrade to a room that was about as big as my bed.
Nothing says Christmas eve like a warm fire in my hotel room!
Driving down Highway 1 through Big Sur - breathtaking.
Death Cab for Cutie wrote a song about this bridge.
A nice hike in Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park (aka Endor).
Luckily I didn't run into any mountain lions.
The view of the valley and ocean from the top of the hike.
McWay Falls - stunning.
Cannery Row in Monterey.
Lunch at the Fish Hopper with...
The view from our table.
Bev took apart that lobster like she's done it before.
My first visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.
Yes, with jellyfish, there's always conversation about peeing on each other.
Weedy Sea Dragon.
Leafy Sea Dragon, not to be confused with the Weedy Sea Dragon. Just ask Bev.
Did you know that male sea horses, not the females, give birth to baby sea horses? Bev lends a helping hand.
They're delivered by sea-section. Get it? Sea-section. Yeah, Bev didn't laugh either.
These fish weren't moving. They were floating absolutely still.
A bubble boy, a penguin, and Bev's finger. Sounds like the makings of a very bad joke.
How'd you like to look up and see that in the ocean?
My new favorite animal - the sea otter. Photo by Bev C.
The cutest things ever.
Hairy Otter! Bwahahahahaha!
Thanks for driving down and hanging out Bev C. Good times.
