My vacation to California took me to Monterey, where my friends Barbara and Raj got married. Monterey is beautiful and the weather was nice and cool. There are wild animals throughout the bay.

The day after the wedding, everyone was invited to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

The Aquarium also hosts shorebirds that are being rehabilitated.

  1. Gorgeous pictures Sammy! I wanna go!! :)

  2. Great photos, Sam! Where was the wedding? Lisa and I were married in Pacific Grove and had our reception at the Monterey Plaza Hotel.

  3. The wedding was at a Lallapalooza, a restaurant in downtown Monterey. Most of the guests stayed at The Monterey Hotel; I stayed at the Marriott across the street on points.
