We got on the PCH this morning to Monterey and made the quick one hour journey from Santa Cruz. When we got to Monterey we headed straight to the aquarium, it was $34 each to get in but it was fab. The tanks were huge and had some impressive size fish in them. We arrived just as they were feeding the big tank, it had two scuba divers in there and …
... too. There are lots of old seals that lay on the beach and relax without having to worry about being bothered by us humans!
When got in and didn't have to line up at all with out passes...they gave us a daily schedule which was full of feedings and different events. First off, we went to the auditorium to watch a movie/presentation about life as a Sea Otter. We have seen so many now and they are becoming our favourite animals....so clever, cute, fluffy and just super cool. ...
... with prawns, scallops, mussels, clams and white fish in a lovely rich tomato sauce. It is called a Cioppino and comes originally comes from San Francisco. Originally it was cooked by fishermen on Friday evenings when the fishermen returned from fishing. They all contributed fish from their catch to the stew.
The evening ended with a game of cards again. Gill is still buying dinner in New York. This has got to change soon!!
... milky white lady in the (you guessed it) white convertible in front of me thought it would only be suitable to take photos of the traffic and the rescue workers, which is why I laughed when she had to cover herself in a towel
from the sun cause when you have a convertible you never put the roof up.
1 last stop was in the Big sur area which is all redwoods log cabins, camp grounds ...
... to the “Drawing Room” for tea, piano and socializing while the men went to the trophy room (todays “Man Cave”) to drink, smoke cigars and discuss masculine topics. There were (tiny and fully stocked) hidden bars all over the mansion, usually disguised as closets or blended into the wall paneling or behind a pillar. If someone didn’t point them out, you wouldn’t know they were there.
