Summer Adventures Continued

After my adventures in Jamaica, I met up with the love of my life in Monterey, CA (after many many hours of flight cancelations in a foreign country and airport camping). We were being good graduate students and taking part in a conference, but we also just spent a few days relaxing and enjoying our few days together (because our summer schedules have resulted in us seeing each other for only a few days at a time!!!)!

I'll let you look at the photos to get an idea of how much fun we had -- I have hundreds more (literally) if you're interested in coming over for a vacation slide show!!

Ry's first "dip" in the Pacific Ocean (which is probably my favorite ocean)

Our first trip to the Pacific Coast together!
(We're right near Pebble Beach)

Ocean Sunset

Near the "Lone Cypress"

We watched this Harbor Seal during an awesome lunch at Fisherman's Wharf!
(We totally had the best table and the best view!)

We spent some time at the Monterey Aquarium

Humpback (Megaptera novaeangliae) !!
(Ry took this amazing shot!)

Pacific White Sided Dolphin!
(Lagenorhynchus obliquiden)

A day off = ocean kayaking!
Seals, otters & kelp galore!
Harbor seal just a few feet from my kayak!

Blurry Sea Otter that was chasing Ry!

What's a trip to San Francisco without a cheesy Golden Gate Bridge photo!

A quick stop at the Giants game (a few days before the All Star Game)

Lots of fun out on the West Coast!!!

Up next: Adventures in Buffalo
(car shopping, time with family and wedding dress shopping (for Anna, NOT me))!!
