One of the great perks of Brian's job is that I get to travel with him...so when his boss told him to go to California to look at the corn trials and evaluate them, I was so there! We started in Gilroy at his corn trials and then drove to Monterey.
First order of business: eat lunch at In & Out Burger!
Second order of business: evaluate the corn
Third order of business: THE BEACH!
This was a very quick trip and by very quick I mean we flew in Wednesday at 10:00 and left Thursday at 3:00....but we managed to cram everything into that time!
Here is the real reason we were there...
The Boss man, evaluating...it is actually very fascinating to think the work he does helps determine the varieties that are bred, planted, and ultimately you eat!
We don't look very 'beachy' in our work boots but it was so beautiful!
We drove through Pebble Beach on the 17 mile drive, which led us to some awesome sights!
Did you know if you focus those big binoculars you pay a quarter to use and then take a picture to them you can see it! Here it is!
I want Cypress trees in my yard!
Brian thought it would be fun to stand on this rock...that was until the waves started crashing and he got wet!
Last stop was the Monterey Aquarium...this is me pretending to be a newly hatched penguin!
