I grabbed loads for 'us' and rushed back to the apartment to pig out. We left the hotel at 10:40 to head to Monterey State Beach.

... wine, the world etc. So half cut I wandered to the Aquarium. Very expensive but very good in fairness. A chance to see animals (and take photos more importantly) that I had only seen snorkelling or on tv. Leopard sharks, otters, penguins, jellyfish to name a few. Given it was such a lovely day and a long walk ahead of us to the motel we made a bee line to the local Micro brewery to do some beer tasting. Really good idea as can choose five beers from ...
