Hello , my bucket list friends . Yesterday, I went on a fun little adventure to Crab Cove in Alameda . I had never been there before and it is surprising just how many places in the bay area I have never been to, since I have lived here my whole life ! My mom and I decided that it would be fun to visit as many bay area cities as possible before we move . We started with Crab Cove in Alameda and I can’t wait to tell you all about it !
Exploring Crab Cove in Alameda
We started off our visit to Crab cove by going to the visitor’s center . There were some really interesting things to see in the visitor’s center including a few fish tanks that housed all kinds of fish, a big crab, a star fish and even a small shark ! The center also had information on the history of crab cove .It used to be a seaside amusement park . Now days it is a beautiful seaside park with picnic tables , grassy areas and plenty of beautiful views . After exploring the visitor’s center we took a walk along the beach . It was fun getting to watch people going kite boarding and windsurfing . It had been a while since I’ve gone to the beach so it was nice to take a walk by the water and watch the waves .We also saw lots of birds including geese . It was a fun little adventure and it would be cool to go back sometime to have a picnic , play in the water and maybe even try windsurfing !

Hello , my bucket list friend and happy March ! There are many things that I love about my life and having wonderful friends is defiantly one of them. For the first weekend in March I got to spend a fun-filled weekend in Monterey with my cousin Amanda and our friend Tamara. We had a great time and I can’t wait to tell you all about it so let’s go !
Monterey March 2018
The day of our trip to Monterey started off with a stop for food then another stop to get our nails done . I had never been to the nail place that we went to but they did a wonderful job . I love my green sparkly nails and my cousin got nail polish that changes colors ! After getting our nails done we were on our way . When we got to Monterey our first stop was the Monterey bay aquarium . I had to been to the aquarium before but it had been a long time . The aquarium is really big and we all had a fun time exploring and looking at every thing from jellyfish to penguins . We also got to watch a diver feed some of the fish . After exploring and shopping at the aquarium we checked in to our hotel that was right along the beach ! After we took sometime to rest at the hotel we went out to eat and we all enjoyed some really good food and dessert . After eating and walking around we came back to the hotel. I’m sad to say that I was not feeling very well so I stayed and rested while Amanda and Tamara went swimming . The next day started out with a short walk down to the beach . It was a beautiful sunny morning and the beach was fantastic, We all had a great time walking and running along the beach. After our adventure to the beach we went to breakfast at the black bear diner . I had never been to there before but after one visit I highly recommend it ! After checking out of the hotel we did a lot of exploring and some shopping around Monterey before having a very yummy dinner and heading back home . It was a very fun weekend and a wonderful way to celebrate Tamara’s birthday ! I hope you all have a great March ! Rock on – Christina Epperly
