... how to convert the weather forecast from Fahrenheit to Celsius. We packed for west coast weather - lots of layers and umbrellas, so we kept rechecking our calculations when the result was coming up as 33 degrees.

We took a detour at Monterrey to drive down Cannery Row just so I could see the place Steinbeck's novel was set. Predictably it has been gentrified with piers with shops and a huge marine aquarium complex.
