David’s Trip to Monterey

David’s Trip to Monterey


On September 3, 2017 our family went to Monterey.  It took us six hours to get there because the traffic was heavy. When we got to our hotel we unloaded and waited for a few hours and then we went swimming. The pool was packed with people. Then when we got back from swimming we went to go eat at Mcdonalds for dinner and we walked there because it was really close to our hotel. When we got there I got apples, milk, a toy, french fries, and a cheese burger for dinner. Then someone came in and said my name and my sister’s name and it turned out  to be my friend from Star Academy. We talked a lot. They went to their hotel. When we got back to our hotel we got ready for bed. In the morning we got ready to go eat breakfast . For breakfast I had eggs, fries, and bacon! Then I got to stay at the hotel room by myself and sometimes I go check on my family and once I came down and  they were gone! Then I went back up to my room and they were waiting for me. When we got in the room we grabbed our things and went to Monterey Bay Aquarium. monterey-bay-aquarium-map.pngP_20170903_141903.jpg
Soon we got there and when we walked there my name was on a street sign! IMG_20170904_151523.jpg
When we got in we went to the touching pool and we touched bat rays. They were soft, slimy, and cool. We walked to a show about the underworld of the ocean. Then I wanted to go back to touch the bat rays again. I got to see octopuses and so many fish like eels, anchovies and they opened their mouths to breathe and eat, tube snouts, and others. Also I saw penguins, a scuba diver, and I got to play with hermit crabs and a snails.

After we saw so many cool creatures we had lunch. When we were finished we went up to the next floor. There I got to go to another touch pool. Finally we went back downstairs and we went home. When we got there we just stayed there watching tv and then we went to eat dinner. We went to a chinese restaurant and I had noodles with meat and vegetables. We got home and went to bed. In the morning we got packed up and went back home and there were no traffic this time and we got home at 1:00 pm. I had a super spectacular time there.


This is a Red Lionfish.
These are anchovies.
These are California morays in a bundle.

I hope you like my blog and the pictures.

  21. Dear Davy,
    It was fun when we saw each other over there. The whole story started when my mom said that she saw you and my dad drove super quick to get to you at McDonalds. Then my dad told me to get off the car and it did turn out to be you. That was really fun and we saw each other at the Monterey Aquarium. It was very fun to see you over there. Where did you go after we left the Aquarium?
