And then today, Chantelle Aimee Osman did what left Coast Crime called "The Calamari Crawl". We walked the length of the trail from our hotel to the aquarium and back. We didn't do it for the certificate, but after waking it, paid $25 for a certificate saying we had done it. The money actually goes to the Monterey Public and County Libraries.
We stopped on the way for breakfast at the Monterey Hotel and Spa where we had a stunning view of the bay, and the best meal I've had on the trip. Maybe it was the company. I've missed Chantelle. We stopped into a jewelry shop, a local little store, and the gift shop of a historic site, buying along the way.
But, it was the seals, the view as we walked, and the company that made it special.
