Monterey (Ar!)

We stopped by Monterey and got to see Arlene just before she wraps up the Otter movie she working on and heads back to Mosier.

She lives in a cool little house on Cannery Row that sits on a dock tucked between the Monterey aquarium and a $600/night hotel, with views of sea just outside the window and bird friends that say hello as you walk by.

Highs:

  • Local farmers market where we bought fresh pasta, pesto and veggies for dinner
  • Touring Ar’s film studio and meeting some of the crew
  • Parking overnight along the picturesque coastline in what felt like the middle of town but where I saw a full horned buck trot along the jogging path at dusk
  • The aquarium. Wow. Pet a bat ray, watch a male seahorse give birth, stand in front of a two story tank where the ‘fish’ were hammerheads.
  • And surprising Ar with a special birthday cake

Lows:

  • Realizing Ar’s birthday is actually in July (the hazards of merely glancing at the birthday calendar and of knowing more than one Arlene)
