Little getaway to Monterey

Went to Monterey for the weekend. Remembered why I've always gone on off-season weekdays in the past-- too many people on weekends in August!!! At the aquarium, it seemed like every time I stopped to look at an exhibit (not that I could see through all the human flesh pressed up against the glass), someone behind me with a stroller would say, "Excuse me!" in a not-so-patient voice. Aren't aquariums supposed to induce placidity? I did manage to get some video footage of the trip. It's 10MB, so dial-up users might not want to bother downloading. I love "videoing" my trips because when you're actively looking for interesting things, you tend to see the world through fresh eyes. Better than watching it all go by without noticing.
