Day was beautiful, temperature along the road was in the low 80's, Monterey was in the mid 70's.

Coming over 17 was very good, not too crowded and moved right along with no crazies.
Turning onto Hwy. 1 was, as always, crowded, but still moved okay.

Inadvertently did my tiny part in moving toward the extinction of the species for Monarch butterflies
when one volunteered to meet his maker against my newly washed windshield.

Monterey wharf was perfect weather-wise but was tremendously crowded.  Impossible to get
an ice cream cone which I desperately wanted.
