Spent a day in Monterey. Started off going to Phil's Fish Market for lunch. Ordered the Cioppino in a Bowl and New England Clam Chowder to share with the boy. They also had Canada Dry on their fountain drink selection! (I didn't take a picture of that...sorry.) The food was SOOOOO GOOOOOD and it didn't smell a thing like a fish market aka not stinky. Made the mistake of not wearing stretchy pants. -_- After we walked to the beach which was right outside the restaurant/market. Haven't been to a beach in a while. It was a beautiful day to watch the waves. Then we continued heading south to the Monterey Bay Aquarium! I haven't been there in YEARS!!! I didn't even remember what it looked like. Started off with the famous otters and stuck around for the otter feeding. They're so cute. We thought the aquarium closed at 6pm but when the loud speaker said that they were closed at 5pm, it took us by surprise. We saw most of the aquarium though. Ended the night walking with the sunsetting on Cannery Row. It was a very nice and fun weekend get away.

The boy has been raving about this burger joint in San Mateo for the LONGEST time! Finally tried it. I ordered the Hot Hawaiian Burger along with a Mint Chocolate Chip shake. The burger was good, but not the best I've ever had. Their burger selection are all pretty gourmet sounding. BUT.... The milkshake was SOOOOO GOOOOD! I'd come back and try another burger a while from now, you walk out feeling VERY FULL!!
