  • Today was the day we were supposed to be headed off to Europe. My back has been a little sore the last couple of days, and when I woke up, I couldn't stand up. It's never been that bad, so not sure what's up. It's loosening up a bit as the day goes on, but that would not have been the best way to start that adventure.

    I'm taking the missus to Carmel next week. It's something that we've wanted to do for a while, but just never really had a time when it worked out. Tickets on Southwest were $49 each, so between 10,000 points and my AMEX card, it was pretty much free.

    Anyone take a whale watching tour in Monterey before? Worth it?

      My one experience with whale watching in Monterey bay wasn't that great. I usually have an iron stomach, but even with dramamine and that electronic bracelet they recommended I was feeling the waves for awhile. And, we saw just a couple of whales.

      I would highly recommend taking a kayak tour through the Elkhorn slough in Monterey Bay. You get pretty close to sea otters and seals, and if it's a good guide you get some great information. I can't remember which tour we went on, but there's a handful of them online.

      When you're done go eat at Phil's Fish Market right next door. Pretty solid seafood.

          Layers, but not too warm. Should be pretty comfortable weather this week.
