We started our trip at Point Lobos, for some hiking & a picnic. That place is gorgeous. It was a challenge to try it with a baby, though. Not a stroller friendly spot. I neglected to remember that about the trails... Being carried, Gillian just wanted to get down & play, in the pine needles, dirt, poison oak, etc.
The next day we went to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. She loved that & so did we. We didn't get any good pictures there, though.
The next day we went to Earthbound Farms in Carmel Valley. That was a little bit of a bust. Apparently, you can't look around too much, except on Saturdays, during scheduled events. The farm stand was nice. We bought some fruit. And, a farmer gifted Gillian with the lovely little pumpkin.
On our way home, we went to Wild Things Park, outside of Salinas. They train & care for wild animal celebrities. The lion in George of the Jungle, the leopard in Mighty Joe Young, black bears with a long list of appearances in TV & film, retired circus elephants.
And, now we are happy to be home!
