Just got back from 3 days of camping at the New Brighton Beach in San Jose. Campsites were so so and morning weather was foggy and windy but the beach is great and weather is great from noon til evening. Also, it's only a 45 minute drive to Monterey. We typically just loiter around our campsite but we had my close Korean friend's family with us so we went to Monterey to enjoy the seafood, shops, and the aquarium.
Anyway, I am tired now and have a large pile of work still to burn away so it'll be light blogging for a few days.
