saturday, mod*tot + i went to a california native plant society sale + saw baby lambs + pigs at hidden villa farm. we bought native plants for our own organic garden, like edible strawberries, plus non-native tomatos, broccoli, basil + chard. mod*tot loved the baby animals + all the children. it's a lovely little organic farm nestled in wooded hills. it was 90 degrees :)
sunday, we went to the monterey peninsula to visit my dearest childhood friend. she + her husband have remodeled their home + it is spectacular. we spent the morning at a pacific grove beach, with their friends while the guys kayaked, + mod*tot hunted sea shells for her dolly. then my friend gave us a tour of the newly renovated monterey bay aquarium + we bumped into more friends!!! what a nice surprise! then we went to the fair in downtown pacific grove + my friend had to go home to help her kids,
so mod*tot + i got some picnic provisions + went to pt. lobos state preserve on the ocean + hiked the rocky cliffs for 4 more hours.
we saw lots of otters swimming (one with a baby otter on it's tummy), seals, groups of jelly fish, gorgeous wildflowers, deer, birds + poison oak. mod*tot didn't have a stroller all day. she just kept going, because she'd see kids + make friends + it kept her excited. we stayed until after sunset. we had a blast!

It sounds like a great weekend! I really feel detached from nature at the moment. Winter was so cold and so long... I hope for many hikes and nature surprises this summer:)
fantastic! I wish you had a pic of mommy & baby otter...
hi orange lucky helen!
Oh how I love Monterey and Carmel. And that aquarium is fantastic! Such a fun weekend.
You picked the right weekend for all that fun! I'm so glad to hear you're well and having adventures.
MM- That sounds idyllic! Sweet photos. You're really vibrate positive energy. This post made me feel so happy!
What a great day you had! We love the Monterey Bay Aquarium too.
Aww! You're bringing back memories!! The Pastor and I went there when we were dating! :^D

Great that you're teaching mod*tot to have fun in the great outdoors --- no video games required!
