Great day and thanks to all who helped make it happen. Wow, those three dolphins swimming right toward me made my day. And then there were the otters, the sea lions who made me laugh out loud, and all the other beautiful nature creatures already mentioned by others. It was a work out and well worth it.

Hi is anyone coming from the east bay near walnut creek that needs a ride and would perhaps share driving? I have not been well and am concerned about the long drive and kayaking and then the return drive. I have a rack that holds one kayak. I really would like to bring mine but I am flexible.

I spoke to Monterey Bay Kayak. No need to reserve sit on tops prior to Sunday. However, if you are planning to rent a traditional kayak, it would be good to call ahead. Sit on tops are $30 a day and traditional's are $40.
I will be setting up the tent just slightly north of the Monterey kayak shop on the beach. There are public restrooms in the kayak shop and at the south end of the beach.
Parking as listed below is $10 for the dirt parking on the south side of the Monterey kayak shop as well as for the paved parking just north of the shop. (The paved parking goes first). (Be sure to pay via the kiosk by the kayak shop). Other parking is available but will require you to unload and then park and walk back. Street parking may be available, but also goes fast on a nice day. (Refer to the link provided by MAG for maps).
For this event, we can group up to paddle as folks arrive. Please stop by the tent and we can help coordinate each group.
See you on Sunday.

If you go to the right-hand column, about 3/4 down the page, there's a pull-down menu (click on the arrow) labelled "Waterfront Area Parks" with info. on cost and location. Most lots will cost $10 for the day. Some lots located several blocks away, but still doable if you have something to roll the kayak on.

The city's parking website <http://monterey.org/en-us/depar...; is delightfully vague about how parking is paid for and how much it costs. It does provide maps showing where the public lots and garages are. The lot between MBK and Del Monte Blvd. is a public lot; so is the strip of parking spaces on Wharf 2.
MBK has this on its website: "Parking fees of $1.50 per hour are collected by the City of Monterey for all vehicles parked in the lot in front of our store."

All: Does anyone happen to have a kids' size 8 shorty/spring suit (outgrown by their last child, perhaps?). I am looking for one for my son, who is a tall 7-year-old. Craigslist is great, but sometimes it can be a long drive for an 'unsure thing.' And I'd rather buy from a KA member -- keep the money in the family!

MBK will put a limit on how far you can go with a rental (the Aquarium, which is still a nice paddle), unless you assume all responsibility for the boat and gear. A nice paddle (unfortunately, further out than the Aquarium) is to Lovers' Cove (protected beach landing) for lunch and return. Some of us will want to get out to Point Pinos and into the open ocean for a bit. Gorgeous.
