Monterey Sea Otters

for me Monterey is a must stop along HW 1 south…

it’s such a nice ocean side city ….and there’s a really cool Aquarium you have to visit if you’re here with kids ….or just interested in marine life.

I was in such luck since I got to witness something that people who live around here usually don’t get to see…mama sea otters showing of their babies…and they where really putting on a show.

lot of work to eat…dive down and get the mussels of the rocks and then opening them with it’s teeth or by cracking them against a rock…

the other baby was a little bigger, ca 2-3 months and eating like it’s mother. Mama was getting the food though.

I did go to Fishermans wharf and had some lunch and looked at all the nice boats in the harbour.

I guess living here comes with a must to have and that means a boat.
