In the present day it obtained as much as 109 F (42.8 C) in Morgan Hill, and we knew it could already be scorching by lunchtime, so my group carpooled over to the Monterey peninsula, the place it was nonetheless sunny, however stayed within the 70s. We took the Monterey Bay Coastal Path, a really good rail-to-trail conversion of a former Southern Pacific line, beginning in Marina, and rode about 15 miles to the tip of the Monterey peninsula in Pacific Grove and again, for a pleasant outing of about 3 hours together with a lunch cease. We additionally stopped for some wildlife viewing. There have been Sea lions aplenty (apparently they arrive into the bay to breed this time of yr) in addition to birds. An incredible day and a great way to flee the warmth wave which greeted us to begin off September.

On the best way again we went out on the Coast Guard Pier. Some big Sea Lions have been sunning on the rocks (and sometimes barking). The Spanish title Lobos Del Mar make extra sense to me as a result of these remind me of wolves much more than lions.
