Really clean air destinations
Anyone know of good places to stay with 50 amps and the cleanest air they have ever experienced? Is that an oxymoron??? High altitude is no more for me, nothing over 5,00ft. (I used to do high altitude backpacking in the Sierras a lot so I'm not deprived!) Anywhere in the US as my son is driving!!!
California- Monterey Bay Aquarium is a must-see. Try to get tickets ahead of time. The sushi bar a block up the road has an all you can eat sushi bar where the sushi plates are on the tummies od sea otters that go round and round. Kids love it.
you can spend a day just on the balcony watching the ocean. Point Lobos is another incredible spot. Just get there early in the morning as it often fills up. There's a south facing beach that actually feels warm enough to sunbathe. Don't get fooled by the weather it's often 50's. foggy and a wind blowing- bring a jacket. Be very careful and ALWAYS watch the waves as there are often "Rogue" waves that sneak up and take a lot of tourists out with them. Also places can have extremely steep drop-off especially at Carmel Monistary beach which in 4' drops to 50' and straight down the underwater monterey bay canyon. The missions are great to vist too. Bolinas is a trip- an old hippie hang-out. (lived there for a while-great air when there was no fog) dont expect the locals to give the proper directions. and the signs are always stolen! Taking the ferry from SF to ??? city???- blank mind- help me here guys) and back is cheap and lots of fun. the houseboats are fun to look at. Our favorite winery was Sebastiani (/sp) Calistoga for the mud baths, mineral water. Vallejo for the history. sil suz
