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!
