I can't wait. The last few months have been filled with stress and in the last year I've taken a massive four days of vacation. The cure involves surprising my credit card company by spending a lot of money on a proper holiday. No doubt I've triggered all their security warnings and will be dealing with them for the next couple of days, but I'll be back in Monterey, California, next month.
The town completely captivated me during those four days of vacation last year. OK, it has to be one of the most expensive places to visit on the planet, but I don't do this off-island vacation thing often and I think it'll be worth it.
Maybe I can improve on the above sunrise panorama during the trip! (Click on it for a larger view).
