10/2 thru 10/4 - My mother and I headed down to Monterey for the weekend. We hit Point Lobos, Carmel-by-the-Sea, The Monterey Aquarium, Cannery Row... the usual stuff. As for the Aquarium, I wish I had thought to bring my camera. We got to see feedings for 2 of my favorites, penguins and sea otters, and also got to see the Great White. She was pretty small, but has lasted in captivity longer than any other Great White. Probably because she has been feeding which no other has ever done in captivity.

A Harbour Seal and her baby. I have lots of pictures of seals using my 12x digital zoom. Surprise!!..they all suck :-(

Another fine 12x digital zoom of a sea otter. He really is super cute even if you can't tell. He's swimming on his back eating
