Motel was very reasonably priced and great location. Walking distance to the pier and boardwalk. Very dated motel and breakfast was cellophane wrapped parties with Tea/coffee no milk just powdered creamer. Surely a toaster and some bread and spreads couldn't be that expensive. Also, no aircon in room but did bring a fan up to us which was great.

Had our last dinner meal of the trip at a pretty good beachfront Thai place and called it a night pretty early as we have to get to a tour on Thursday that we booked for 8:45am.
... T store a few minutes away which had sims for the iPhone 5 and got a sim but my phone would not activate EITHER! Luckily though the guy realised it was because Apple's server was not responding due to the massive downloads taking place as the new IOS7 was rolled out today. He thought our phones would probably both reactivate later in the day when things had calmed down. We therefore decided to let them both sit ...
... Peter has developed a really bad cold and is going down hill at a rapid rate. This cold is going through all of us. Started with me on the plane, then Russ and now Peter. Monterey is not kind to us at all.
I go back to collect the Thermos's and he grumpily hands them over.
We go off for the day to explore the water front and check out the sights.
Its hot, this weather is following us around it seems. We struggle to work ...
