We went home to put our goodies away and eat our lunch from the market. A nap sounded a bit tempting, but we really aren't nap takers. So instead, we headed to the beach. Just as relaxing, in my opinion :).
There were only a handful of people out walking the shoreline, so that was nice. Very peaceful.
We had been walking for maybe thirty minutes when we started to find some nice pieces of sea glass at the very edge of the waves. Literally washing up at our feet :). So fun!
There were pretty colors of the perfectly tumbled glass...
...and something different. We found several pieces of sea glass that were all melted before being tumbled by the ocean. Hmm... I wonder where it came from and how it got melted?
Monterey is such a beautiful place. There were dolphins playing just off the shore. We always love watching them, they seem so happy :). All I had with me for taking pictures was my cell phone, so no photos of the dolphins. I did manage a photo of these cute little birds...
They were the funniest little things. As soon as a wave would recede, they would run... out and nibble up bits of whatever at the water line and at the last possible second, as the wave would be coming back in, they would run... away from it. Their tiny little legs were a blur they were going so fast :).
That was our day, simple and relaxing...so nice :)
