On the way home from our visit to the Monterey Bay Aquarium Henry and I stopped at Marina State Beach. While we’d hoped to spend some more time hopping on rocks and exploring tide pools the wide, sandy beach and giant dunes (apparently among the tallest in California) proved to be just as much fun.
Henry has only been in Cub Scouts for a few months but our list of activities keeps piling up. At the beginning of November we were able to go on an overnight trip with the Scouts to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We are no strangers to aquariums, having been members at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach. Staying overnight, though, was a whole new experience. We had the place virtually to ourselves, which made for a very leisurely visit.
