Must-SEA Photos [28 Photos of the Monterey Bay Aquarium]

You're going to want to watch this in HD (bottom right)

We knew the Pacific Coast Highway was a place of monumental beauty, but this little gem came unexpected.

As we drove northbound through Big Sur this Thanksgiving, we couldn’t help but see countless signs pointing toward one attraction in particular: The Monterey Bay Aquarium. After a smidgen of online research, we decided it seemed silly not to make a stop. Thus, we pulled over to sleep on Cannery Row (this adorable road deserves a blog post all its own) and decided to head to the aquarium first thing in the morning.

We thought about trying to convince you to go with long soliloquies and ego-shaming, but why don't we just show you? Check out these photos and try to tell us you don't want to go :)

None of these photos have been filtered/enhanced/made worse in any way. Scout's honor.

This vaguely reminds us of a movie scene but we can't quite place it...

Not all schools were off for Thanksgiving.

Yellow, how are you? <-- Too corny? (get it...because it's yellow). Okay, okay, we'll stop. Or maybe we'll just proceed through this intersection cautiously (get it...because it's yellow).

When you didn't make the Nutcracker so you drop a fire mixtape.
