So today I woke up feeling MUCH better. I was even able to fully enjoy breakfast and coffee without fear of throwing up. We went whale watching, ate lunch, and drove around Big Sur. It was a fantastic day. I still haven’t got my head around the iOS software so I’m finding it difficult to upload my pictures but hopefully I will figure it out for the sake of my future posts. I am so glad that it was a beautiful day today otherwise I don’t think we would have enjoyed walking around so much. It’s a bummer that I let my fitness band run out of juice because all of my steps were not recorded today. I must pay more attention that in the future!
Princess: Whale Watching Excursion
We wanted to catch the early 10:30AM trip today but we ran a bit late and didn’t arrive at Fisherman’s Wharf until 10:25. We didn’t want to rush so decided to just wait for the 12:30PM trip. Which worked out fine because it gave us a chance to look around the Wharf. We visited the candy shoppe. The Caramel apples looked amazing but I didn’t like the idea of spending $7.50 on one. (I’m fairly sure I can spend that kind of money making a few caramel apples.) The hubby decided to buy an avacado buba drink but was disappointed (what do you expect from powder and ice?) it did not taste that great. After visiting a gift shop and over looking the pier we decided to go ahead and get in line for the whale watching so we can get first dibs on the boat.
We were in line by 12PM and not too long after signing in others followed. It was 68F degrees and it honestly started to feel hot so I removed my hoodie (I know I sound like a complete pansy to my family and friends back in Texas). Finally got on the boat and we (my husband, mother-in-law, and myself) decided to sit in the front of the boat. The trip took about 3 hours but we didn’t even notice it until we looked at the time. It was so nice being out in the water. It was so exciting spotting the humpback whales, orcas, sea otters, and even the group of birds out in the water indicating that these large sea creatures were nearby! I took many video clips and pictures I want to see if I can make a slide show and include it in this post somehow (I will attempt that tomorrow because I am beat tired now).
Sightseeing at Big Sur
This is our second time sightseeing at Big Sur and it just as beautiful as the first time we saw this area. I swear if you ever had the chance to visit you really should. When life gets too overwhelming and stress is all you seem to think about if you can come out here and stand near the cliff and watch the water – none of that matters. The things that are bothering you today does not have to take over your whole being. Watching the waves and looking around at the beautiful landscape it’s so calming and makes you feel so small that anything that seems so big does not seem that big anymore.
I wish I could write more about all of this but I can barely keep my eyes opened right now. For all that have left comments for me so far thank you so much. I know I’ve been neglecting you guys that’s my bad. I will get to your comments as soon as I can – I really do appreciate hearing from you!
