        I chose this KOA becaues of it's location- close to Santa Cruz and the Monterey Peninsula. I'll spend a few days here as a base camp. And it's perfect for that. What I didn't expect was the level of hype for Halloween! Amazing work by the staff and the campers to make it a safe and fun weekend.

        The site is on a bit of a hill but really nicely laid out. The pool area is nice and big, and very clean.

        Today I spent most of the day tidying and cleaning my "house". Although there is not much to clean, small spaces seem to take a lot of work keeping tidy. And I lubricated moving parts like the stabilization legs, door hinges etc; did a few days worth of dishes; dumped my black and grey water tanks; and checked the tire pressure in …

        Today, after watching live-streaming of certain events unfolding in Ottawa I headed for a day in Carmel-by-the-Sea, south of Monterey. I guess as a Canadian I feel compelled to comment on the weather, although here I don't suppose it differs much day to day. But it was a gorgeous day, perfect temperatures for tottling around and bright sunshine. …

        I had read that Santa Cruz is where surfing began in North America. The Polynesians are credited with starting the sport of standing on a surf board although many cultures had body surfed. But Hawaii is responsible for exporting the sport to North America and specifically to Santa Cruz. In 1885, three Hawaiian princes went to San Mateo, California …

        And now for something completely different!

        It was raining and grey when I got up this morning so it was a great time to do some chores and planning for my next couple of weeks. Then it was off to Monterey to visit the aquarium there.

        The Monterey Penisula is more developed and the traffic worse since my previous two visits. But the services and parking have improved, I think. …

        Today was brilliant sunshine, warm and calm, so although I hadn't planned on it, I decided to do a quick run through Monterey and along 17 Mile Drive to Carmel and then down Hwy 1 to Big Sur and beyond.

        What a spectacular day. I have done this trip before a couple of times, but never as the photographer and never as the driver …
