Monterey and Point Lobos

Here are some of the photos I took at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Point Lobos. The weather was beautiful, and I even caught a glimpse of a rainbow over the ocean!

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is featuring an excellent exhibit called “Tentacles.” The octopuses (octopodes?) changed colors several times while we watched.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium is located right next to Stanford’s Hopkins Marine Station, where scientists perform world-class research right in the bay.

After Monterey, my friends and I explored Point Lobos, located 20 minutes south of Monterey. First we visited Whalers’ Cove, named for the 19th century Chinese fishermen.

On the trail we found ferns!

My friends and I enjoyed exploring the tide pools.

I’m looking forward to going back!
