We came to Monterey to stay for about a week and thoroughly explore and enjoy it. We ended up staying three weeks. Not by choice, but due to personal health issues. Despite being forced to explore Monterey's terrible health system, we still found an opportunity to sample a lot of sights and experiences in and around the town.
Our arrival to San Francisco Bay marked a transition - our dedicated crew, Drew and Steve, were leaving us and we were about to continue the journey on our own.
