What a beautiful day to visit Monterey CA! The ever-present crowds have diminished since the middle of last week. Got to walk by the beach, despite the forecast of rain which waited until we were driving home. The fantastic Monterey Aquarium is closed as are some other facilities. The stores and restaurants on Cannery Row were all open. Got my Rocky Mountain Factory fix and Johnny Rockets (which is funny because we live within 5 blocks of one but it so noisy). Went by Costco only for gas (no lines!) around 4PM. There was still parking to be had by the store but it looked fairly busy. Not tempted to walk inside to see how bare the shelves are.
That shows the area in front of the Monterey Bay aquarium which hosts and delights visitors from around the world. That is normally a very bustling corner
