One of the cooler things that I did in Monterey was the Monterey Bay Aquarium. It was expensive ($30 for a student - $50 for a student year-long membership), but it was worth it. I look forward to coming back often in 2012.
We got back to Santa Clara yesterday afternoon. I've got ginger syrup on the stove, which means I'll be needing to pick up club soda from the store today. Along with hot dogs. Don't ask, it's a comfort food thing. I'm happily back in my little home world. Slippers on my feet, coffee (with real milk! not yucky creamer) in my cup, and things on the stove. I like it here. It's nice.
ps. I know this goes without saying, but all photos are mine - aka copyrighted by me. If you want to use one, ask.
