During that drive of a lifetime, I missed the last part of the Pacific Coast Highway between Monterey and Half-Moon Bay. And, I have the last Sunday without any plan. Quickly finished breakfast on Sunday and was out to cover the missed part. I took a deviation from a highway and reached Redwood city. The route between Redwood city and Half-Moon bay goes through a scenic forest with tall trees and full of bends, making it an excellent drive. Frequent cyclists keep a tab on speed. Half-Moon bay -> Santa Cruz -> Monterey completes Pacific Coast drive. Visited the famous aquarium in Monterey, and could catch a glimpse of different types of Jellyfish, Octopus and a lot more. For the first time, I saw a few penguins and the funny penguin walk.
Everything, good and bad, has to come to an end. So is this three month holiday (Hope, my manager is not reading this. He actually complained sometime back that I have not been updating my journal of late. So, should be fine). Just few more hours left before catching a flight to Hong Kong. I am looking forward to the 12 hour break that I have in Hong Kong. Thanks to Ripul and his cousin, I already have a tightly packed itinerary for 12 hours there :) Should be reaching Bangalore on Sunday, the 5th September.
