California Trip – Part 1

It’s well and truly November, cold and dark and leafless outside, so it seemed like now was as good a time as any to catch up with some pictures of our visit to sunny California back in (yikes) May. Doug and I made the trip for our honeymoon, and got a chance to do lots of sight-seeing as well as catch up with some relatives who hadn’t been able to make it out for our wedding.


We went hiking at Point Reyes National Seashore on the Tomales Point Trail the day after we got in, and although I don’t have any good pictures of Doug and I in our hiking gear, I did at least snap a couple pictures of the stunning scenery.

I wore a suitably themed outfit for the occasion, since I just can’t pass up the opportunity to wear a novelty print. Sure, everything’s a bit wrinkled from travel but nobody really pays attention when you’re covered in hot pink coral.



We didn’t take many pictures in the aquarium, mostly because it’s hard to do it justice! So I don’t have a lot to show you aside from these jellyfish. You’ll just have to take my word for it that the Monterey Bay Aquarium is the best aquarium I’ve ever been to, and well worth a visit if you’re ever driving down the California coast.
