Road Tripping – Day #12

My brain is turning to mush.

Is it really Day #12 of my road trip?

What day of the week is it?

Where am I?

It’s all turning into one big road trip blur.

(It’s a good thing I have all my photos to keep things straight!)

I’m in Monterey, California now.

Yesterday, I traveled from Mendocino down through beautiful Anderson Valley.

I’m gradually making my way towards home.

California sure is a gorgeous state.

It was raining when I arrived in Monterey.

I checked into my hotel and took an hour to decompress from the drive.

Then I walked a couple blocks to a Starbucks where I connected to WiFi for long enough to delete a few hundred emails.

(There was a temporary WiFi problem at my hotel.)

By then, the sun had come out.

My son and I walked to Fisherman’s Wharf.

We decided to walk, and walk, and then walk some more.

(We needed it after five hours of driving.)

We saw a lot of seals and one enormous sea lion.

And …?


We saw lots and lots of otters.

One of them was kind enough to let me take his photo.

He was eating his dinner – mussels he had just caught.

He cracked the shells quite loudly with his sharp teeth.

Wasn’t it nice of him to let me take his photo while he was eating?

I think I want a pet otter … they’re so cute!
