Off to Monterey

Friday we rented another ZipCar and I drove to work and dropped my parents off. Then I wanted to hang out with them so we just went to Starbucks for a bit. :) Then my parents wandered around LDAC a bit and I went to work for a bit. After that we had lunch and then took off to Big Sur.

We went via Santa Cruz, which actually kinda sucked! The boardwalk there was not classy or old-school, or even very cool or nostalgic. It was just tacky-town, no good food, just junk and cheap ice cream and weird people. Boo!!!! So that was reasonably terrible, but I bought a nice ice cream on the way out and continued on the highway... and then we got stopped for ages by a bunch of traffic. :) We were worried we were going to miss the nice arrival and hors d'oeuvres at the Bed and Breakfast, so I booted it along the highway and we made it reasonably on time.

On arrival the hosts were very nice, introduced us to everyone else, and then thank goodness some of the tasty hors d'oeuvres were still there. :) We had some snacks and relaxed and then I had a bath before dinner. Our room was in the Jabberwock Inn, which is this very strange and funny themed Bed and Breakfast, it is based on a Lewis Carroll poem, and so lots of cool and weird artwork in there.
