7 years ago on the 22nd of October, George and I got married!
We've celebrated in different cities,
doing different things.
This year, since we're so close to Monterey,
we decided to take a whale watching trip and go out to dinner.
For $98 we booked a 4 hour trip.
It sails from the Monterey Fisherman's wharf.
There are lots of fishing boats in the harbor.
It was a gray day with the marine layer in.
I never tire of the otters in the water.
We dutifully took our sea-sick pills an hour before,
and boarded at 9 am.
The water in the harbor was pretty calm.
It wasn't long before we saw our first humpback!
She (or he) was swimming beside another one.
It was about this point that the swells and rocking of the
boat was getting to me and about 6 others :-(
George gladly took over the camera duties for me.
I saw a lot of the water off of the back of the boat :-)
It got a bit sunnier as we sailed north near the
Moss Landing Power Plant.
We continued to see whales during the trip.
I felt much better after we got off the boat,
and George got us some McDonald's fries :-)
After stopping off to see Mom and doing some grocery shopping,
we came home and got ready for dinner.
We went to our favorite Italian restaurant, Luigi's.
No pictures, but believe me it was a nice dinner!
