Monterey, CA for a night
|DAY 34 - OCT 5 - WEDNESDAY
We headed out in the rental car once again, this time packed for a few days away. Our mission was to find several more fireboats on the list and end up in a position to do Yosemite tomorrow.
Our first stop was in Oakland, CA where we found their older Fireboat "Sea Wolf" and a newer small boat. Then it was into Alameda where we visited a fire station and their fireboat.
Next, it was down the I-880 to the Route 92 San Mateo Bridge across the bay to another fireboat at Redwood City.
We had visited Monterey once before in 2000. As we drove south from Redwood City we made a last minute decision to go to Monterey, partly because it had a boat, and partly because we would soon be running out of daylight. The choice was a good one, with the scenic sea side town having lots to offer.
spent Night 34 in Monterey.
