Photo Friday: Seals and Surf Monterey

This week’s Photo Friday Post is about the Monterey Peninsula in California. This has to be one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the world. There is a luminescence in the waves that is incredible — many local artists capture this in their paintings.

The sea life in that area is amazing too and includes seals, whales, and my favorite — sea otters! We stayed at the new Intercontinental The Clement Monterey in January and enjoyed unbelievable (and spooky) 70 degree weather. We took advantage of every moment and in addition to our visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium — a must-see museum with kids — went sea kayaking. I tried hard to take pictures of the otters but sadly they were blurry. I did, however, get a fun photo of seals soaking in the rays.
