Day 4 - Monterey

The drive between San Jose and Santa Cruz was stop-and-go for much of the way. And then there was a several-mile-long backup when the freeway dwindles to a two-lane road between Santa Cruz and Monterey. And then I lost one of my rechargable batteries for my camera under my driver's seat and I can hear it rolling around but it's in this plastic case thing that I've never noticed before and thus I can't reach it. I think I'll have to buy a new set of batteries. I've been taking so many pictures, I bought a 2-gig memory card in San Jose. I've already used up one of my 1-gig cards. . .

Anyway, Monterey:

Dinner?

Shark!!!!

Jelly

Fish and jellyfish are difficult to photograph, since for some reason the aquarium keeps it really dark in there. . .

These are some of your best yet! Obviously you figured out how to compensate for the low light. The coral is breathtaking. Way to go, Soto!!

Thanks!

Now I'm down in Santa Barbara, but the computer won't let me access Blogger. Darn cookies. I posted some photos of a Monterey sunset and Big Sur on my Flikr page, if you want to see them.

I'm not sure the next time I'll have computer access. Heading east to the mountains tomorrow...

Soto, watch out for those dangerous California bears!

AP story today:
STATELINE, Nev. - A bear cub drew a crowd of spectators at a Lake Tahoe neighborhood as it munched on barbecue-chicken-and-jalapeno pizza in the back seat of a vintage red Buick convertible.
