This Is The Weekend

This is the time if you're a local, you stay home! The Monterey Peninsula is a giant parking lot for classic automobiles and so full of tourists you can't move. What started as the Concourse in Pebble Beach has spawned many more auctions and events over the years, till now I think every classic auto in the world is here!

The one perk of living over the highway is that when the Carmel Valley events let out, I can see the cars go by below. So perty! This will be the last year I get to see it since we won't be in this house next year.

I remember from my time stationed in Monterey how many festivals (etc.) there were. It seemed like there was something every weekend.

My particular favorite was the Scottish Games & associated festival. Great place for a poor soldier to spend a day :-)

Of course, there are very few places as nice as the Monterey area to do those sorts of things.
