Monterey Bay Aquarium

Friday: (10/08) Today is the day we celebrate Courtney's birthday by taking her, and ourselves to Monterey to see the Monterey Bay Aquarium. We picked Courtney up at 9am and were off. We took the longer, flatter route down highway 101 through Gilroy so that everyone arrived with their breakfast intact. Highway 17 to Santa Cruz is a lot more windy road. We haven't been to the aquarium since they just opened their big tank but weren't allowed to get in to see the big take because they restricted it to members only. Darn. This time it could have been open, it's been open 15 years now but it was closed for remodeling. Darn Again!

We enjoyed seeing what we could see which was still a lot. We did take a break for lunch at Sly McFly's bar nearby. We headed off about 5pm even though they are open until 6pm but still arrived home about 7:30. Not sure why it took so long, I slept most of they way so Lou could drive in peace. Dinner at home.

About 8:55pm I was busy watching a training video over the internet when the connection died, again. I reset the modem which didn't help. Same symptoms as the previous times so I waited only 15 minutes before calling ATT at the upper tier phone number. The tech tested the line, confirmed it was them but gave no specifics and said it would be back on iwithn four hours and they would call in the morning to see it it was OK. About 9:40 I noticed the link light on the modem and it was back working. Not a bad restoration time but why does it keep going out?
