Look, A Whale!

As I mentioned last week, Doug's mom came to visit us and we crossed several more things off of our California Bucket List

First, we took her to Venice Beach! I don't think I've really written about this place at all, and it's probably because I never take pictures while I'm there. Half of the stuff would be inappropriate to put on the blog anyways, so I just don't even bother! ha! But it's actually really fun and VERY entertaining. 



Anyone fans of the show Storage Wars?? We are! We finally visited Jarrod and Brandi's store, which is like 15 minutes from our house, and I bought a paper cutter! It is a great addition to my crafting desk! :)

And then the highlight of the weekend - whale watching! Doug and I had been dying to do this and it did not disappoint!




We saw a ton of dolphins and seals during a 'feeding frenzy'


Doug said this looked like Maisy....mean!





The boat had this underwater capsule, but it was a little too much for this slightly claustrophobic girl! 




We saw a whale! 


I know these pictures aren't the best, but it was incredible to see! They showed us a picture of the type of whale we saw, and it was amazing how much there was of him that we couldn't see under water!





It was freezing!




If you ever find yourself in Southern California, make sure to take one of these tours!

That looks like a lot of fun!

And I love Storage Wars! My aunts storage place was featured on one of their shows last season, and she said they are all really nice ppl and not at all what they are portrayed on as TV.

Looks like a great time! That underwater capsule thing looked pretty neat, but I'm not sure I could stay down there either. So neat that you got to see a whale!!! Did you call for it like Dorie in Finding Nemo? : )

I love that you are crossing things off your list! We were in Venice last week at Abbot Kinney and we fell in love. That area is so cool!!

Wow, the whale watching looks like so much fun. I would probably have just as much fun people watching on venice beach though!

Whale watching seems amazing!

I'm dying about Storage Wars! Over Christmas we were back in Iowa at my in-laws and my FIL was watching it. We got sucked in and watched it for 3 hours!!! So addicting! And so fun that y'all went to their shop :)

P.S. I feel like we're long lost kindred spirits...sorry if that's weird, haha!

Did you use the coupon for the tour we got at the meet-up? I want to go so badly!

Brittany said... Best Blogger Tips

AHHHH! That is so awesome! The picture that Doug said looked like Maisy cracked me up! HAHAHA! She is MUCH prettier than that!

That is really cool the boat had that underwater capsule. I would definitely do that again!

Hey Julie! It looks like you had a great experience whale watching. I love the sunset pictures and the one of the whale's back. Your CA bucket list is a great idea. You've done tons of amazing things! Probably more than I have and I've lived here my whole life! :)

cheers!
