Monterey Elks Lodge
As we go through May, the lockdown continues. So we continue our fun here in beautiful Monterey with more kayaking, bike rides and hikes. And of course Jaxon time!
We started out with some kayaking in the Monterey Bay Marina. To get to the marina we put in at one of the beaches around the jetty. As we paddled around the point some of the seals there were very curious about us and slid into the water to check us out. It was so funny to watch them bobbing up and down following us.
Plenty of large fishing ships here.
This is the backside of the pier.
This guy is pretending to be Superman.
There were a couple other kayakers and paddleboarders.
Some folks live on their boats.
We paddled under the docks and piers and there were brightly colored starfish and barnacles.
As we paddled back our "friends" followed along again.
I took Ryan and Diana out for a ride too.
Every so often we'd get off and hike along the bluffs overlooking the Pacific.
Brennan was our second to get married. Due to Covid their wedding plans were cancelled. They decided to go ahead with the wedding but instead of having it in the forest with 200 people, they decided to have it at my parents with just immediate family. We were so bummed for them, but it was still very special.
Mr. and Mrs. Brennan and Alex McCormack!!
It was less than 30 minutes and then back to Monterey we drove.
I met up with my friend Chris at San Juan Batista and we walked around the town and had an outdoor picnic lunch.
Spring blooms were everywhere!
Somebody is getting chubby!
There was plenty of hiking and beach time too.
Plenty of lazy days at the beach, just down the road from where they live.
This retro home is built over the rocks. What a view!
I really LOVE Pelicans!
Plenty of Pelicans and a Photobombing Seal at the end.
Hey Hey! Social Distancing, move over!
Momma and Baby otters all over They just floated on by us.
Otters Floatin' By!
In the Moss Landing Harbor there were more seals and otters.
