... and went for a hike towards the ocean. Pretty epic.
There was one bakery that had Verizon service and I ended up eating their daily as their was action on the house. We lowered the price on the house and got two offers. On Thursday, the house was in escrow. Booyah!
Friday, packed up and headed up to see Clint Eastwood in Carmel! ...
After a very busy third week, meeting numerous fascinating people doing incredibly fascinating things, I finally had to leave this friday afternoon to go back to UCLA. It is raining and it is Friday traffic, but I mad it to my first stop at Ansilomar State Park in Monterey. A beautiful place, but unfortunately I arrive after sunset, and maybe tomorrow morning if it doesn't rain too much I will be able to go for a walk on the ...
... in during this entire trip. My attempt to get my fill of fresh seafood as it is something lacking back at home. Anyway, I enjoy every morsel, every bite before the main arrives, Hawaiian Fish Soup (seafood in a coconut ginger lemongrass broth with udon noodles). Needless to say, my tastebuds were very pleased that night. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area. It really has a lovely, chill vibe to it, very aloha in ...
... smoke. For a few miles, we were greeted by further pockets of roadside fires. We're doing well on this trip- all we need now is an Earthquake. Actually, scrap that, don't want to jinx us. We finally arrived at Monterey at 4.30pm. Tonight we are staying at the Best Western plus beech Resort in Monterey. The entrance and lounge was impressive but the receptionist was a bit snooty.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAsilomar Conference Grounds Pacific Grove
Asilomar is a well kept secret.............we at first couldnt make out what it was as there seems to be some groups of folk on courses there...........but its is super special place to stay if you want to try something slightly diferent and refreshing reasonable price wise . the breakfast is in a huge lodge and well so large you have everyhting on offer.............the surrounds are architecturally intersesting and it worth spending an hour on the free audia tour and self guide yourself around the buidlings and see the place come alive all those years ago when it was first built. We are on a world tour and this was just 4 days at Asilomar but it will remains special in my memory as the best place we stayed along the californian coast , no not for luxury, but good value and much better value than a normal motel and for the same price.............im enlgish and i cant say how sweet this place is, with sweet natured people, and away from the hsutle and bustle of the real world.
