Monterey Bay, Pt II:

Monterey Bay Inn. Cannery Row street is on the left. To the right, Monterey Bay itself and the mighty Pacific Ocean.
Looking out over the park towards the hotel.
The Cannery Divers memorial in Breakwater Cove park. Divers were important to the canneries because fish were processed through underwater pipes that had to be built, serviced and repaired.
Breakwater Cove. This is where diving students come to take classes in the open ocean, and is sufficiently close to land and assistance should problems arise.
South of the marina, near Fisherman's Shoreline Park.
The west side of Monterey's Fisherman's Wharf, at low tide.
In the harbor, adjacent the Muni Wharf. The Monterey Bay Yacht Club is to the right, just out of the frame. The water was, again, amazingly clear.
Harbor, looking east towards the Yacht Club and the Muni Wharf.
The bay just adjacent the entrance to Fisherman's Wharf, where numerous restaurants compete with various tourist shops and whale watching tour boats. Clearly, it is low tide.
Looking east towards Fisherman's Wharf, on the west side. The water is very clear.
Unhappy diver. He is quite displeased with my presence and my camera. If looks could kill. . .

Ooops! Well, at least he was stuck in all that gear and couldn't hurt you.

Leticia, makes me think that if he'd had a spear-gun, he'd-a tried to spike me with it!

In the words of Ralphie in A Christmas Story the diver looks to me "like a tick ready to pop." Dave, on the other hand was completely at ease.

So, Mr. Tick: welcome to the public domain, take a page from Dave's book and lighten up. Build a bridge and swim under it.

Thanks for the post, Homes!

Pray for Mr. Mad Dog. He while engaged in recreational diving has to glare a hole in you for taking his picture. Was this dip really a business trip? Locate or dispose of swag or evidence? Secret treasure hunt? Blown alibi? How soon would he invoke Miranda? Stir in music and credits for an award winning feature film!

Have more fun!

Back in 2000, Mr. AOW and I spent some time in Monterey; we drove up Pacific Coast Highway from Los Angeles in a Mustang convertible.

We loved every minute of one of our most memorable vacations ever! I especially enjoyed Monterey's connections with John Steinbeck.

I seem to recall a Forrest Gump store in Monterey when we visited. Is that store still there?

DM: a "tick." Perfect!

Debbie: thank you so VERY kindly!

AOW: oooooooo, a Mustang up Highway 1! That would be incredible!

And yes, that "store" is still there; it is the Bubba Gump restaurant where my wife LOVES to dine when in Monterey! We ate twice there this week. It's her favorite!
