Jen and I slipped away today for a quick weekend trip to Monterey. We arrived at noon, checked in early, and quickly left for a ride. We rode to the wharf and had some chowder in a bread bowl before heading south on the bike trail. Out in the bay we saw a cruise ship, something we had never seen before.
The World is apparently the world's largest private yacht. You can live on it if you want, although it's a bit pricey. Fill out an application on the web site if you're interested in that sort of thing.
We continued on the bike trail, an experience not completely unlike a real-life game of Frogger. Brain dead tourists walking five across, weaving newbies on rental bikes, dogs, joggers and racing roadies all make for an interesting experience. Still, the scenery is worth it.
On the way back we witnessed this surfer being eaten by a shark.
Tragic and unfortunate, but it's the natural order of things. Sharks need to eat, too.
His buddies were bummed out.
That's it for now.
