Honeymoon Days 11 & 12 by James & Courtney Deming
|Here is our last installment of our honeymoon. We hope you have enjoyed our trip as much as we have.
Thursday: We woke up and went to the Monterey Aquarium. We saw lots of fish and even got to touch some rays and other sea creatures. The aquarium has a three-story tank that has tuna weighing up to 400 pounds! We didn't know tuna gcould get that big, but they said that the largest one ever caught weighed in at 1,400 pounds. We were able to watch them feed the tuna and other fish in the tank. They sure do move fast. After the aquarium we drove to the beach and looked for shells and then drove 17 Mile Drive and saw Pebble Beach and some pretty nice houses. We took the Carmel Gate and drove along their scenic drive and saw more houses on the shore. We then drive back to Monterey and had more seafood for lunch at Rappa's. Then we went back to the hotel, put on our sandals and went back where we looked for shells and looked ofr more shells. We then decided to go back to the hotel and change into our bathing suits and go play on the beach in front of the hotel. We built a sandcastle, more of a mountain since we didn't have any buckets or shovels. James worked on the moat and I named it "Casa de Deming". We waded in the water, but it was pretty cold so we sat in the hotel hot tub for a while before cleaning up and going to Fishwife for dinner. We then came back and had to figure out how to repack the luggage for our flight home the next day.
Friday: The day was spent primarily driving back to San Jose and flying back to Tulsa. We had a great time, but we were ready to get back home and we really missed Eddie. We think he was glad to see us too.
Hopefully we will be able to post some honeymoon pictures on Rosenose or we will put them on courtneyandjames.com as soon as we can. We will also do the same with the wedding photos as soon as we get them back too. We will post a message letting you all know where to look.
Thanks again for sharing this special time with us.
Courtney and James Deming
