As we hadn't been to Monterey and the aquarium since Munch was quite little, I was really looking forward to a nice few days there with the extended family. First stop was Santa Cruz, for lunch and surf-watching.
Munch couldn't resist getting closer to the action so she and her daddy headed down the stairs to the water.
We got to Monterey and checked in to our hotel with plenty of time to explore the Cannery before dinner. A local attractions magazine featured an ad for the Mystery Maze, which sounded like fun for both the little and bigger kids, so off we went.
Everyone donned their 3D glasses-
and we proceeded to feel our way through the mirrored, flashing maze-
After a few runs through the maze, it was time to meet up with everyone for dinner at Bubba Gump's. The movie references were lost on the kids, but they had fun snapping photos nonetheless.
