Shouldn't a little bit of ocean be included in every holiday weekend? Luckily, I got a lot of sunshine and ocean, and got to share it with someone special. Sometimes change happens over months or years, but I've recently learned that change – and good change at that – can happen really quickly. Life, you are full of surprises, and I'm working to let go of my Type A tendencies and wholeheartedly embrace this opportunity.
Greg hadn't been to Monterey and Carmel before, and I hadn't been since high school, so a quick beach trip made for a perfect end to Memorial Day weekend. It was an absolute blast! Yummy food, adorable sea creatures, a touch tank at the aquarium (what up sea cucumbers!), fantastic company, wine, sitting on a sandy beach, gorgeous scenery and lots of laughter were some of the highlights of the trip. If you ever visit a northern California beach, I highly recommend a trip to Monterey and Carmel.
|Start of a great trip.|

|Loved this guy.|
|The smell of the ocean makes me so happy.|
|Cutie otter. I melted!|
|Cannot wait to share many more miles with this guy. The beauty of the 17-mile drive in the Carmel area is totally worth the toll fee.|
