We took a family trip to the Monterey bay. It was so beautiful! This is in Santa Cruz (more photos to come!)

Goat friend at Ardenwood farms.
We drove down Hwy 1 and it was foggy on the coast.
We walked down the pier/wharf and visited Marini’s sweet shop.
The sea lions hang out under the pier and are noisy and hilarious to watch.
Every time we visit we are flooded with memories. maiki showed Emma the place he carried her Grandma at Natural Bridges.
Everything was beautiful.
Happy to be home again and eating in our kitchen. No more eating out for me til our next trip! Here we are eating the Saturn Cafe.
We took Amtrak from Jack London Square in Oakland to San Jose. It it so fun to take the train. The bus however that goes over Hwy 17 to Santa Cruz from San Jose is a less relaxing way to travel.
Listening to Sea lions barking and croaking and Emma giggling and snorting with laughter and their funny sounds and behavior.
