Outdoor Wednesday Monterey Weekend


I am linking this post to Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Daydreamer.

Carmel trip 056

I will confess to needing to be quick quick with this post.  I am headed out already this morning but I didn’t want to not share about my weekend.

Carmel trip 165

My husband and I ran away for a short holiday.  We took advantage of my cousin getting married in Carmel to make a fun get-away.  With my new work schedule (two months now!), my husband and I have to be very diligent in making time for each other.  I was amazed at how much I needed this break.

I made relaxation a priority.  While the weather wasn’t spectacular, it was warm enough and not raining; a nice change from home.

The thing I want to share most about is seal pup season.

Carmel trip 351

We got to see the new seal pups at Whalers Cove in the Point Lobos Nature Reserve.

Pretty cute, huh?  We didn’t know where we were headed when we took our drive but I’m glad to have the few minutes we spent at this park.  It was a rare treat to enjoy seeing these chubby creatures.
