Destination: Anaheim, CA
Drive Time: 8.5 hours
Hours listened to The Lord of the Rings audiobook: 3 hours, 50 minutes (Finished The Fellowship of the Ring!)
First stop: Monterey Bay Aquarium.
We spent all of the morning exploring the aquarium. We saw three feedings, penguins, open sea, and kelp forest, and met a very curious octopus.
Second Stop: Bixby Canyon Bridge.
This part of the drive was incredible, and if we stopped at every lookout or vista point, we would have never made it to Los Angeles.
Third Stop: Elephant Seal brooding grounds

We got into our hotel very late but it was worth the excellent drive. Tomorrow: Disneyland.
