Honeymoon Oyster at Crystal Fish, Monterey, CA

You know the saying, "A picture is worth a thousand words...?" Well this video has it's own non verbal commentary! The picture of the "Honeymoon Oyster" to the left was recommended by our waitress at the Crystal Fish as we told her that we were on our honeymooning. Needless to say, it was not something I will try again. The contents were a raw oyster, salmon eggs, sea urchin, raw quail egg yoke. I should have just swallowed it whole but the mouthful was just too big...

I know...

So on our honeymoon we have had a really good time so far, lots of fun experiences... :) We saw the pink flamingos short and tall at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We saw the seals and the funny thing was there were seals outside the aquarium on a rock formation that were just chillin. It was a beautiful aquarium. They had a whole exhibit dedicated to sea horses, and another just to jellyfish. I have never seen anything like it.

Yesterday we went to Pebble Beach and I got three granite pebbles for our living room. The views there and on the World Famous "17 Mile Drive" were literally priceless. We went there at sunset so I got some amazing photos. A narrow road runs through it with the tallest Cypress Trees standing between some of the countries most expensive and classy homes. The golf course is as spectacular as they say, with a view right over the ocean. There was a cool tree called the ghost tree that looked like a drift wood sculpture, but was just actually just a dead tree that was breath taking.

Earlier we relaxed on the lush grass in a mini park on the Carmel Square with small town cutesy shopping to luxury brands like Coach and Louis Vuitton! I bought a pink sweat shirt because I accidentally forgot any of my jackets, or fleeces. I bought some souvenirs for a couple really special people.

Our condo is a state of the art two bed room with a full kitchen. We wanted to be able to cook breakfast and make lunches. On the way from San Fransisco we passed a road side "Modern Day Success Story" Farmers Market that is open 24/7 with the best fresh big fruits and vegetables we had ever seen. The countryside drive was beautiful, and kind of reminded me of the drive to Chattanooga, TN.

So to make a long story short, I love being married to Kyle and I want to come back to California. Now it is time to get back to Honeymooning with my Husband and living the dream!! ILML!
