These days it is a rare weekend day that Tuan or I are not working, so if I see our calendar open I’m likely going to fill it with a family day adventure. This past weekend we took a mini road trip south, in search of whale watching. I’ve been wanting to do this for couple years now and had it on my “family bucket list.” We really didn’t know what to expect as we walked onto the Sea Goddess whale watching boat, but we were excited even before we cruised out of the harbor – spotting sea lions swimming about and abundant wildlife. About a mile out to sea we spotted our first two whales. What an experience! I had no clue they would be so close. I don’t think any of us did – as all three of us were loudly excited! Although we didn’t see any whales jumping in the air or flaunting high tails for those epic whale shots, we were graced by their peaceful presence.
After our 2 1/2 hour boat tour, we decided to do a quick stop at the Moss Landing sand dunes. And I’m so glad we did …. by the end we were exhausted, covered with sand, starving …. and simply happy.
