We took a quick 24 hour trip down to Monterey. Dinner at the Sardine Factory was just as good as everyone promised, although no sardines were in evidence. I was hoping to get some spectacular sunset/sunrise photos, but the Weather Gods did not quite participate. Still managed to get few nice shots of the waterfront.
The aquarium is a must-see destination for the jellyfish alone, never mind all the other interesting animals. Except the penguins, which are boring and smell like fish. Sorry.
