One of my favorite days spent in California was the Sunday we visited the Monteray Bay Aquarium. It's probably one of the best aquariums I've ever been to. They had a ton of cute otters (my most favorite) and a really cool exhibit on sea horses and sea dragons. After spending a few hours there, we drove up to Santa Cruz and spent a bit of time at the beach and boardwalk. The Santa Cruz boardwalk is really so much fun. We visited last summer and I was so happy when we decided to return this year. Zak and I went on a few rides, including the Sea Swings which gave such a wonderful view of the ocean, and we all had a nice time strolling up and down the boardwalk. We made a brief stop at the beach to dip our feet in the freezing water (though I did end up going in on our later trip there, more to come about that sillyness) and of course take fun beach pictures. Oh! And before I forget, I found the absolute best sweatshirt in a Monteray gift shop, so scroll down to see that ;)

With the stuffed otter Zak got for me
BEST SWEATSHIRT, combining my two greatest loves
Then, we headed to Santa Cruz where I didn't take enough photos
Then, we went to the beach, where I took too many photos
The water was freezing!
But it was okay!
The lighting was also quite lovely
