Monterey DPS

2-6 September 2003

Rachel and I went to the Division of Planetary Sciences meeting in Monterey, CA. The meeting was very good, but Monterey offered much more than just science talks, and so we tried to take advantage of that, too.

On Thursday, we took a horseback ride along Pebble Beach. The conference ended up booking a limo to take us from the conference center to the Equestrian Club. The ride was beautiful. We started up in the hills, rode down and along the beach, and then back up. After that, the limo driver took us back to the conference center along the scenic route, and we enjoyed riding in the limo.

Later that evening, we also went sailing out onto the Monterey Bay. The sealions were all over the docs, and I caught this fuzzy shot of one dozing on the prow of a canoe. We spent about an hour sailing out and sailing back. The jellyfish in the water were beautiful, and it was very relaxing.

I also wanted to get a shot from the balcony of our room at the Doubletree that looked out onto the fisherman's wharf and the docks, very nice. Rachel also wanted some pictures of the crazy lamp that we had in our room.
