Took a day trip to Monterey (about an hour or so from San Benito). Went to Bubba Gump's Shrimp Factory for lunch - what a great job they've done with that little chain of restaurants..."Gumpisms" (i.e., "Stupid is as Stupid Does", Life is like a box of chocolates") cover the walls, and the food is fabulous!
After lunch - we headed over to the Monterey Aquarium, which was every bit as wonderful as we'd heard! The "Jellies" exhibit of jellyfish was fascinating, as was "Wild about Otters". Gave my new 12X Zoom camera a real workout - used up all of my memory card, all of the internal memory, and my batteries! Can't wait to stop long enough to look at the pics (which I did manage to move from the camera to the computer) and get some uploaded!
Till then - I've been shooting lots of closeup photos of the cute baby ground squirrel families around our campsite, as well as a passing glimpse of some deer and a bobcat!

Absolutely love the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I have a good shot of Chrysaora Fuscescens (Sea Nettle) myself at http://shanecrawford.org/2007/33/its-a-jelly-eh.
