Mar 29, 2013 - Back again...
We decided to return to the beach today. We got further in the water than yesterday. I'm not going to tell Nehemiah but I drowned a little. I'm not an expert swimmer. It was really cold again, not as bad as yesterday though. A girl gave me her number. But I was the butt of a joke because it only had 6 digits on it. Oh well. Tomorrow is our last day here. We're gonna head back a little early to make sure we're not late on anything. I'm not that tired so I'm going to play Xbox with Nehemiah.Jump to full entry
Mar 28, 2013 - Monterey
Moved the RV close to Monterey CA today. I picked the Laguna-Seca recreation area about 8 miles from downtown Monterey. When I turned on the entrance road there was a sign stating 16% grade. For an RV that is like going straight up while towing a car. With the pedal to the metal my RV was down to 10mph when I suddenly realized I did't have a plan-B if the RV actually stopped moving up the hill. Can I detach the car on such a steep grade? Fortunately I got to the top of "the mountain" without a problem. The campground is actually located on...Jump to full entry
Mar 28, 2013 - Finally!
We finally made it to the beach today. It was just as cold as it was at Pismo. It was still nice though. I didn't sunburn and I saw some pretty nice girls. I'm glad we came her on spring break. I saw a starfish on shore too. I threw it back in the ocean. But it's time for me to sleep. Nehemiah seems like he's having fun which is good.Jump to full entry
Mar 28, 2013 - To the sea
So we went to the beach today. It was really fun. William found a starfish and decided to throw it in the ocean. The ocean was freezing as usual and the sun blaring down on us trying to cook us alive. I caught William checking out a bunch of girls. That sneaky sneaky guy. Well all that swimming has pooped me out. Time for bed.Jump to full entry
Mar 27, 2013 - Relaxation
We decided to relax today. We found an arcade and wasted a bunch of quarters. Xbox is nice but it's always good to go back to the old school for a bit. We were probably in there a lot longer than we needed to be. It's nice not having a bunch of worries though. I liked today, but it's time for bed. I like writing most before bed.Jump to full entry
Mar 27, 2013 - Arcade madness

Its really nice to not worry about school and homework. Well i think ill call it a nightJump to full entry
Mar 26, 2013 - Recovery
Today was much better. We feel a lot better. We decided to go to the aquarium today. There's a lot of cool fish and stuff there. It's nice not having to do it with a school and take notes and all that kind of stuff. We just enjoyed the day. I didn't learn a thing except that jellyfish are almost all water. But the day is over and I'm ready for bed.Jump to full entry
Mar 26, 2013 - Fishy Day
Today turned out way better than yesterday. William and I were feeling healthy and energetic. We decided to go to the monterey bay aquarium. It was really cool to see all the exotic fish they have there. Apparently, jellyfish are almost completely made of water. Gonna go to sleep now.Jump to full entry
Mar 25, 2013 - Not a good start....
So...the clams we ate were bad or something. Today was so terrible....me and Nehemiah had diarrhea and projectile vomiting all day. I've never felt as bad in my life as I did today. I'm sure the staff here wasn't too happy with us either. It only lasted today though. I feel a little better now. I need sleep though. We didn't even do anything today. I hope my vacation gets better than this.Jump to full entry
Mar 24, 2013 - First Day!
It's day one. Me and Nehemiah left to Monterey today. We chose Monterey because it seemed like a nice place. not too far but still far enough away from our family and everything else. It's not all that expensive either. We saved up $900 and plan to spend every cent of it. The hotel and car weren't hard to find on line. We just went to...Jump to full entry
Mar 24, 2013 - First day to monterey
Today my friend William and I had headed out to Monterey Bay. We decided to go to monterey because it wasn't too close but was't too far either. It was in our price range. William and I have saved up $900 dollars to spend over our vacation. We had trouble getting a car from avis We're too young, so we had William's uncle rent the car out. We had reserved a room here at the econo lodge. Pretty nice. But, there was one bed. Not cool. We ate at a seafood restaurant. I ate clams for the fist time. They don't taste that bad really. I brought my...Jump to full entry
Mar 15, 2013 - Pebble Beach
We took the 17 mile tour around the Monterey peninsula and visited 3 of the most beautiful golf courses Poppy Hills , Monterey Bay Peninsula and of course Pebble Beach. Had lunch on a terrace overlooking the first hole. Visited the pro shop and the clubhouse and gift shops. All magnificent. View of 18th from clubhouse with ocean in background was ??? Can't think of an appropriate word to describe. We then traveled north to San Jose for the night.Jump to full entry
