Mike and I recently got back from a little weekend getaway, and boy oh boy did we need it and enjoy it!
We headed out to Monterey, CA and did practically nothing... it was perfection.
We thought about hitting up a small winery here and there, but decided we'd just drive down Highway 1 and see the coast.
We were heading back north towards Monterey from Big Sur and saw this great place to stop off and check out the beach.
Mike went off in one direction and I went in another to get a picture of Izzy's name in the sand.
While I was clicking away I heard a large group of people behind me start yelling in another language and then laughing non-stop.
Come to find out there were trying to warn Mike about the monster wave that was getting ready to pound him, ahhh hahaha!!!
I know, I know, I shouldn't be laughing at him, but I can just see in my mind how it played out.
There he is standing on those rocks behind him (you can see another big one headed for those same rocks he was on), hands on hips, and taking it all in.
Then he slowly turns to look down the beach all while smiling and nodding his head at how beautiful everything is...
Never saw it coming. Hehehe :D
He should have taken some pointers from ocean fearful me.
You never know what could be rolling up on you in those waves!
Our last day in Monterey we went on a whale watching tour. I can't even tell you how excited I was about this.
Some of my husband's friends say we're just soooo touristy going on something like that. I could have really cared less, I was pumped.
An hour and a half into it...
I got so excited every time I saw a bird thinking FINALLY... it's a whale!
Oh, wait for it... wait for it...
Yeah, this is the best I can do for you since we didn't see anything. Bummer.
I did get quite a kick out of the seagulls and their spunky attitudes though.
And, if I could have gotten away with bringing one home with me, I would have ;)
I'd love to hear where you have gone for a little getaway? Anywhere you really loved?
