I’ve been to Monte Carlo, Monaco once before; but this was the first trip with the kids. My previous trip to Monte Carlo was about 4 hours long – it was a port on a cruise.
It was raining so this was a good day for fun, family, indoor activity – an aquarium. Great aquarium! And it is built on a cliff overlooking the Mediterranean, so it has awesome views.
I like turtles. Big, sea turtles. Their main tank had one, lonely turtle. We hit it off right away!
I spent a very long time watching a little fish pick rocks up in his mouth, move them to a new location, and deposit them in a mound. He was creating a hiding spot, I think. He was constantly looking around for predators. I assume there weren’t any in his tank, so I assume it was an instinct thing.
Andy had a good time scaring the clown fish. They would all scramble into their protective sea creature when he would wave his umbrella in front of the tank.
Yes, we are both easily amused.
We also drove around Monte Carlo….sort of lost, but it isn’t really possible to get lost. The sea is on one side – so don’t drive that way; and the mountains are the other geographical feature.
I picked out a lovely yacht in their port, for after I win the lottery.
We also poked around in some of the expensive stores, like Louis Vuitton. Jill tried on a lovely, 3100 euro leather jacket. It was the softest leather I’ve ever felt, but not really in our budget.
I purchased a bottle of my favorite French champagne. It is chilling in the mini fridge in our room.
