Monterey Bay

28th December 2002



My Saturday morning was spent at Monterey Bay, we went in 2 cars - Sohrab, Sohrab's sister, Sachin (Sohrab's friend), Edmund and myself, and - Yusuf, Karthik, Olivia and Olivia's parents. 

We dropped Olivia's parents at the Poppy Hills golf course and we drove along the 17 Mile Drive and stopped at various scenic locations at Pebble Beach to take pictures.

Then we went on our way to the Monterey Bay Aquarium where the sunny weather turned rainy. But we went to visit the place nonetheless and met up with Kae Fong, Heng Wai and his friend at the aquarium.

The place was rather crowded despite the rain and it wasn't too bad inside... sea creatures to see and take pictures and a rainbow to end the evening...

It's dark around 6pm or so and snow is falling...
