Travel Post: Monterey Bay Aquarium

"The sea is as close as we can come to entering another world"
- Quote seen on entering Monterey Bay Aquarium's sardine room 

Monterey Bay

I found some pictures from a visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and thought I would share them here even though these were taken about a year ago on my point and shoot camera. The monkey (seen here with his Ammama who was visiting us then) is now a very opinionated pint sized little man, no longer the baby in these photos! 

You should definitely make a trip to the aquarium if you find these angelic beings as fascinating as I do. (I could stare at them for hours. Or days.)

...and If your bucket list includes high fiving a star fish

Get friendly with a starfish!- Monterey Bay

And especially if you have little monkeys who would like to have conversations with fish...

Monterey Bay

....or look for Nemo

...or just make silly faces with grandmothers from behind the fish tanks :)

Monterey Bay

If you are visiting the Bay area and especially if you are planning a trip to beautiful Carmel or Big Sur, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is close and is definitely worth seeing. There are special events at the aquarium during the day including wine tasting and even celebrity chef visits so check out the website before you plan your trip. Cannery row where the aquarium is located, where there used to be sardine canning companies which are all shut down now,  is also interesting to stroll through. There are many quaint little shops and restaurants.

If you are driving down from San Jose it is only about a two hour drive and you must make a pit stop at Morgan Hill at the delicious Trail Dust  BBQ. The Gilroy outlet malls are also enroute if you want to stop for some deep discount and factory store shopping  and in July, Gilroy is the destination for all garlic lovers during their annual Gilroy Garlic Festival.

  1. The jellyfish images are awesome. Compared to other aquarium centers in the world, the Monterey Bay Aquarium may not be as huge but it does definitely can be considered one of the good ones out there.

  32. I think what you wrote made a bunch of sense. But, consider this, suppose you added
    a little information? I am not suggesting your content is not good.

    , but what if you added something to maybe get a person's attention? I mean "Travel Post: Monterey Bay Aquarium" is kinda boring. You should glance at Yahoo's home page and note how they write article titles to grab
    people to open the links. You might add a related video or a picture or two to
    get people excited about what you've got to say. In my opinion, it would make your website a little livelier.

  34. I drop a leave a response each time I like a article on a website or if
    I have something to add to the discussion. It's triggered by the fire displayed in the article I browsed. And on this post "Travel Post: Monterey Bay Aquarium". I was actually moved enough to drop a comment :-) I do have 2 questions for you if you tend not to mind. Could it be only me or do a few of the remarks look as if they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I'd like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post.

    Would you make a list every one of all your community
    sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
