Seaside...Monterey Aquarium...

Finally went up North to visit both Kara and Frank in San Jose and Seaside. I found out that both locations are not as close together as I thought, but we still managed to get together and play tourist and have lunches and dinners together. We three went to the Monterey Aquarium and saw the special Seahorse exhibit. Above are some furry Sand Dollars.

And now some Seahorses...
This Seahorse looks like leaves...
And then Kara and I in front of the shark tank...

Kara and I sitting in a giant clam shell...
Frank on the pier...
At Bubba Gump's...we ate shrimp and more shrimp.
Kara getting ready for her salad and shrimp...
We had a very nice time and loved the cooler sea air. The sun never did come out, but it was a nice change of pace from the hot weather we've been having lately. Playing tourist was great fun!
