Moss Landing, California 5/6/2014

 

MAY 6, 2014 (Tuesday)

 

Lazy day. Michael got up and went to the store early. I think he just wanted to drive his new car. At around 1:00 PM, we drove 2 miles over to Moss Landing and had lunch at the Sea Harvest Restaurant. We have never eaten there before. It was nice but we still prefer Phil’s Fish Market. Sea Harvest Restaurant has a little fish market too, and it’s not as busy as Phil’s, the view is better at Sea Harvest, but we just prefer Phil’s flavor.

Tried to capture the high tech dash, will try again in the dark.

Didn't get a chance to see what kind of car this is.

As cool as the blue one is, this is my favorite; our new Prius.

After lunch, we walked down the boardwalk to see the sea otters and sea lions. The whole pier is filled and overflowing with hundreds of these creatures. Quite remarkable (and stinky). There were also many more of these creatures looking for a place to “land” and were swimming around.

Groups of Sea Otters gather together and they are called a "raft of otters".  This raft was pretty far away.

Saw a lady petting the head of one that was asleep, hope she still has her fingers.

We stopped by Auto Zone to get little mirrors for our new Prius, but they didn’t have them. We also tried CVS (no luck), and finally found them at the little Prunedale Auto place. They’re square but will work and are cute.

Got back and Lexi was home from searching for a job. She’s getting so discouraged but is trying hard. We both worked on the studio as our guests had left around 11:00 AM to head down to Los Angeles. We then went out to the car and I showed her some more of the fun futuristic features. She said she really likes it and wanted to drive it out to her friend’s house. We, of course, said “no!”

Not sure what we’re going to do for dinner but that was our day. Hope yours was great!
