We visited Monterary Bay Aquarium, approximately an hour drive from San Fransisco. This attraction is along our route to Los Angles. You may want to check out the programmes and feeding times line up before visiting the aquarium.
We reached in time for the African penguins feeding. Guests are welcomed to sit casually on the floor or go to the glass dome areas to watch these cute penguins eat. Aquarium staff will also explain what they do and observe during each feed.
Marine organisms are always fascinating. The aquarium has set up several spots for the visiting guests to interact with these marine animals. Timid me, I do not dare.
Touch the Starfish
Touch the Crabs
Bat Ray Touch Pool
I love this super big panel of water tank view. Time seems to slow down in front of the big blue water.

We dine in the aquarium’s cafeteria. Simple food but delicious. You can also dine outside the aquarium. Before you exit, remember to get a hand stamp, so that your re-entry is valid.
Pizza & Milk
Burger & Orange Juice
A 4 hours plus drive brings us to Ventura Beach. We are settling here for a night before heading to Los Angeles.

Our next base station is Los Angeles where we’ll be staying with Lester’s uncle for the remaining weeks.
