Once we get there we will head towards the north end of the beach. That part has free parking and is said to be the most scenic. The south has metered parking. We will take some time for photo ops and video ops (drive byes, anyone? ).

We will be staying in Seaside, Saturday night. The following hotels have rooms avail. Due to people being on a budget, the best course of action is to pick which hotel suits your price range. They are all near each other, so we won't be all over the place.

After breakfast we are going to drive to the Monterey Aquarium at around 11. Entrance fee for the aquarium is $21.95 for adults, with 20 or more people, we basically get a $2 discount making it $19.95 for adults. The address for the Monterey Bay Aquarium is:

Monterey Bay Aquarium
886 Cannery Row
Monterey, CA 93940

Parking for the aquarium can be kind of difficult because all the "free" parking spots around the aquarium are metered. What I have found is the Cannery Row parking garage, about 3 blocks from the aquarium. You can see it on the fourth map attached below and read about it here:

Cannery Row Garage - Located on Foam Street between Hoffman and Prescott Streets. Best parking for Cannery Row, the Aquarium and the Recreation Trail. Hourly parking with an attendant, $0.75 per half-hour or fraction thereof, $12 maximum per day, Visa and MasterCard accepted. Monthly permits available. 1003 Spaces

The plan will be to try and take the roof of the parking garage for great photo ops of our stangs on the roof of a parking garage.

For the people joining us Sunday, they can meet us at the aquarium.

After the aquarium, we will have lunch at Rosine's. They said as long as we don't come around the lunch rush hour (12 noon, we should be fine.) Their address / phone number / website so you can see the menu are:

Rosine's Restaurant
434 Alvarado Street
Monterey, CA 93940
Phone: 831-375-1400

The map of how to get to Rosine's from the aquarium is attached below (3rd attachment). The directions are as follows:

From Cannery Row turn left onto Lighhouse Ave.
From Lighhouse Ave. turn right onto Tyler St.
From Tyler St. turn right onto E. Pearl St.
From E. Pearl St. turn right onto Alvarado St.
Head to 434 Alvarado St.
Total Dist: 1.86 miles.

When we are done eating, we will head out for the Sunday cruise. It will be around the Monterey peninsula, seen in the attached map. For people who want to know the roads we are taking, these are the roads the cruise will follow:

Go onto cannery row
Turn onto ocean view blvd.
Then onto sunset dr.
Turn onto 17 mile drive
Exit at carmel (there'll be a gate)
And go onto scenic drive

You can see this route in the Monterey map (1st map attached) that 05 FSTBK made for us.

This cruise will be our last event, so be sure to take good pics to show everyone here. Let's make the east side jealous and show them just how beautiful cali. is, and how perfect it is for Mustang driving!!

let's get cruisin'!!!
