Today we went to the Monterey bay aquarium. My favorite exhibit was the sea otter area. They have six otters four of them were on display today. They are all girls. We got to see the otters, kelp forest, and open ocean exhibits, get fed witch was all really interesting. In the kelp forest they had a diver go down and hand feed the fish. In the open ocean exhibit the had targets that the animals would go over to and get fed. In the otter exhibit they hand fed them but only when they did what they were supposed to. Fun fact about the otters they were all rescued and brought here permanently because they could not go back to the ocean. Also some of them are part of a otter rescue were They rescue abandoned otter pups.They had other exhibits to like the deep reef, and the Monterey bay habitat splash zone, and coral reef, the aviary, (the bird area) and there were also touch pools. I’m going to tell you about my favorites but not all of exhibits. One of my favorites is the open ocean exhibit in the exhibit they have no rocks or coral because they are trying to recreate the creatures natural habitat. In this exhibit they have one sunfish, a few groups of tuna, a big school of sardines, two sea turtles, and a couple of hammer head sharks 🐟. Fun fact this exhibit is more than sixty feet long. In separate exhibits they had mackerel and lots of jellyfish to. Another of my favorites was the aviary 🐦. They had lots of shoreline birds and they also had puffins and my personal favorite were the penguins🐧. Oh and of course they had ducks to. All in all I loved the experience and learning new things. Well good by for now.
Today is our second day in legoland. We got up and had breakfast in the dragons den the restaurant (they have a buffet .) The buffet has every breakfast dish you can imagine Such as eggs,bacon,choclate chip pancakes,smoothies,juice,waffles ,sausages,tater tots,hash browns,so on and so on. After breakfast we went into legoland and visited the Lego ninjago area (which I do not care for ) and went on the ride there. After that we did some other cool rides Including junior driving school (you drive in mini cars ) and the Dragon rollercoaster. Those are a couple of my favorites but there are other cool things like the aquarium. After some rides we ate lunch then did more rides. After that we had ice cream cones 🍦 then we went to the aquarium. After that we drove to the beach where we will be camping for the next couple of nights. My dad got burgers 🍔 for us. Then we did our blogging and watched movies and went to bed. P.s. The thing I will always remember is never go on really sharp turned roaller coasters. The end
Today we visited the La Purisima Mission which is a place that in the 1700s, the Spanish Catholic Church made a colony. And they tried to convert the native Americans that were settled in that area. If you are wondering they are called the Chumash people. There are no more Chumash people alive today . Sadly they died of different diseases and other reasons that remain a mystery. The Spanish introduced the Chumash people to lots of different things for example chickens were new to them and corn and they were exposed to new diseases and lots of them. In a letter thAt. priest wrote, it said 200 chumash people died of measels one year. The chumash people’s diet surprisingly consisted mostly of acorns. The chumash people are very curios subject with things we still do not know about them. But I am afraid it is the end.
Today we went to the San Diego safari park. We did two jungle rope courses one easy and one hard. We also went on a tram and saw part of the african area on it. We also saw tiger training 🐅 and we heard about pandas. We saw lions, tigers , kangaroos,and antelopes, giraffes, cheetahs,elephants,condors,and vulutres, buffalo, bats, rhinos, birds, and zebras at the safari park. My personal favorite were the cheetahs. We got slushes at a snack cart too. I mixed strawberry and blue rasberry flavors together wich was really tasty. All in all I had a great day at the safari park. After that we left the safari park and we drove to a hotel. In the morning we headed to the Spanish mission. The end
Today we moved to a different campsite than we were supposed to be in because the previous one was closed (government shutdown). At the campsite they had ducks and goats and even a cow. A little bit later we fed the ducks. Then we started a fire and roasted hot dogs. Yum. Then we went to bed.
The next day we went to a hotel. In the morning we went to legoland! Legoland is really fun. We went on all sorts of rides. My favorite is the Dragon rollercoaster. However not all the rides were great. Later that day we had soda and churros with chocolate sauce. We are staying in the castle hotel. It has a pool and playground and lego sets in all the rooms. We got a “knights and dragons” themed room with a tv.it was really cozy. The next morning we got up and had breakfast. Then we explored the park.
Today we moved to a different campsite and saw a road runner! And a old rusty wagon. But the van broke down so we had to get a tow truck. It was really cool how used a hook to pull the van on the tow truck. Then we got in the tow truck. A little while later we arrived at a hotel and orderd a pizza 🍕and went to bed. The next morning we went to a Starbucks and did home work while dad fixed the van. Then we drove for a few hours then arrived at a new hotel.At the hotel they had a pool and hot tub! That was really fun. Then we went to a Thai restaurant for dinner. Then we blogged and went to bed. P.s. The government shut down really affected us the national parks were free. The bad thing is the bathrooms 🚽 were closed so we had to go in the woods which is really unfair. The end.
On the 30 we went to death valley. What really surprised me was how windy and cold it really was at night. We camped there for three nights in the camper van🚙. The first day we went on the golden canyon trail and saw the red cathedral. (The red cathedral is a rock shaped like a cathedral and is bright red.) The rocks on the hike were beautiful they were all shapes and sizes. They were also most of the colors of the rainbow 🌈red Orange green and purple.Then we we stopped shortly after that to take a look at the salt flats. And yes the salt flats are actually made of salt.The salt flats stretches many miles think miles of salt! And it is all organic. The salt flats are remarkable because they are 282 feet below sea level ! The lowest point in North Aamerica.
