I recently took a trip with a group of friends to Monterey, California to celebrate a girlfriends 50th birthday. It was a great trip, as the weather was in the mid 70's, and there was so much do to. A big highlight was taking a tour of Cannery Row. Lynn Marie, our tour escort was amazing. She made our trip more enjoyable with her knowledge and wit! We played Movie Tour Challenge. It was interesting to see the movie locations, especially where Marilyn Monroe filmed. I had no idea so many films were shot in Monterey,
However, the big highlight of the tour was seeing the sea lions and sea otters. It was birthing season for the sea lions, so we were able to watch the mother sea lions teach the babies how to swim. Lynn gave us the whole run down on the daily lives of the sea lions and sea otters. Lynn pointed out to us that the sea otters nearly became extinct, and now we have nearly 3,000 sea otters thanks to many who have helped bring them back. We still have a long way to go!
We took our tour quide to Point Lobos reserve park with us. We were so glad we did. She knew everything about the plants and wild life. She is also a photograper, so she took a lot of pictures for us. The pictures came out fantastic! Thank you Lynn Marie for making this trip a very memorable one. We look forward to Monterey next year.
