Field trip Fridays: Monterey Bay Aquarium
The Monterey Bay Aquarium is awesome. Albeit expensive. And I probably won't take my class here unless I actually teach in Monterey or Carmel. And if I teach in Monterey, my students would probably already have gone at some point in time.
The surrounding beach walk is pretty too.
It is still a beautiful place. I made the mistake of going last year during 4th of July weekend. Can you say sardines in a can? Or maybe in an aquarium?
No, the marine life here are nicely taken care of. I love the otters. But because it was crowded, I didn't get to see the penguins. I left after about 2.5 hours, it was that crowded. I was seeing more backs of people's heads than anything else.
