Back to day four- we woke up and went for a nice run along the water. On our way out of town, we hit the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We had no ...
... room for ages so the double bed with TV in room was such a treat. Knowing that we would be on the road heading north the following day we had a pleasant dinner at the hotel and retired to our hotel room, showered, robed up and got some good rest.
