California Coast 2016

Our latest adventure was a trip down the California Coast! We started off driving from phoenix and stopped in Bakersfield to sleep, then continued the next day to Monterey. We got there and grabbed some dinner. The next day we walked around cannery row, went to the Bay aquarium, and grabbed some food at Bubba Gump Shrimp! Even though neither of us ordered seafood, it was still good!

After Monterey, we got in the car and headed to San Francisco! On the way we stopped at a fruit market and all of their fruit was so good!

When we got to San Francisco we walked around the Pier for a little while and got to watch the sea lions and some street performers. We had also bought tickets to go on the red double decker bus. We did both routes they offered and both of them were fun! Going across the golden gate bridge was absolutely freezing! But it was so fun and worth the shivers! We also went to the Wax museum and the Ripley's believe it or not museum.

The next day was Alcatraz! I knew Matt would love this because he is super into history and museums. The boat ride over was also pretty cold, but once we got to the island we were just fine! We did the audio our and it is so neat to hear all of the different prisoners talk.

The next day we drove down and met some friends at Knotts Berry Farm! The rides were fun, but there must have been some sort of concert or band competition going on, because the amount of children/teens and school buses were excessive. The lines were never very long, but walking around seemed so crowded!

We ended our trip by going to the beach on Coronado island! This is our favorite beach and we have been here multiple times. It was so nice to just relax for a day before we headed back home.


Here is our video from our California Trip! We had so much fun! It was so fun showing Matt all of the places I treasured as a kid!
