California

This past weekend Ben and I were able to take a little trip to California for a friends wedding. We flew in a couple of days early and stayed in Monterey. On Saturday we went to the Monterey bay aquarium, if you are ever up there I highly recommend it we had such a great time seeing all the fish and wildlife. Sunday we drove down the coast to Cambria, on our way there we had noticed on a lot of the shores were seals. We thought it would be cool to stop and get a picture of all the seals, as we walked up we saw that they were elephant seals. After talking to a man from the friends of elephant seals foundation seeing them is a rare event. They only come to shore twice a year once in the winter to mate with the females and in July to shed the rest of the time they are out in the ocean.

The wedding in Cambria was beautiful the bride and groom looked amazing. We are so happy for Gabby and Brandon to start their lives together.
