It rained this morning, which is unexpected this time of year. It didn’t rain very hard, really just drizzle, but it was enough to get everything wet. We decided to go to the aquarium because of that, but then so did everyone else. Yes, it was crowded, very crowded. This is a holiday weekend and Monterey is a resort town, so this came as no surprise. Still, it is the finest aquarium that I’ve ever seen and well worth braving the crowd for. I’ve included a few pictures of some of the marine life on exhibit. We had lunch afterwards, but although there was a calamari and clam chowder festival going on, the general consensus was for beef. For which, we headed to a brew-pub forthwith. Dad fixed his own variation of Mom’s clam chowder recipe for dinner.
