For my daughter’s 23rd birthday, she wanted to go to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, where we saw some amazing exhibits, took a tour with a docent. We were allowed to photograph her in a self-driving car. Later, in Palo Alto, we went to the Baylands Nature Preserve, which I had not visited since 2007.
Albany, California is a tiny town between El Cerrito and Berkeley, California. The “bulb” is a bulb-shaped landfilled peninsula which had been a hippy colony for a while, from what I understand.
Driving back from Palm Springs we decided to take the scenic route via 101, but even more so by trying to stick close to the ocean on Highway 1/PCH through the Morro Bay/Vandenberg Air Force Base area. The clouds were out most of the way, but it was still kind of cool to see a part of the route between San Francisco and Los Angeles that I’ve never seen. We did stop for a bit at Stern’s Wharf in Santa Barbara, and we took some footage as we were leaving Palm Springs itself, before reaching “the 10.”
Shando’s first time in the Monterey area (where my dad was born). Even though we had a lot of fun with the dogs this time, next time we’ll take a trip down there to do less dog-friendly things.
