Our visit to Monterey was great. This is a photo and video review of Monterey. Monterey Bay is one of those places where it is easy to take beautiful photos. We need to go back. Some places are so perfect that you don’t need a lot of words to describe it.
Revised September 2023 to include underwater videos our visit was in the fall of 2019.
Underwater Videos taken at the Monterey Aquarium
I took these videos in 2019 at the Monterey Aquarium and didn’t include them in the blog in 2019. They were taken at a time when I thought I could include videos as part of the content. I put them here in Sepetember 2023 to get ready to include videos in my blog post about the bears at Katmai National Park.
These videos are very short and experimental. They have no sound I don’t know anything about video and sound editing. Perhaps they do have sound.
If you know anything about this, perhaps you could tell me how to make them better.
What was my goal?
My goal was moving pictures. Instead of Youtube videos, it would be cool if they played automatically as you scrolled over the picture. Each video is only a few seconds long and if they launched as you scrolled without any reader interaction I think they would be much better.
A little more about Monterey
I first visited Monterey in 1986 and was very impressed. I’ll include something about that story someday. Even in 1986, the aquarium was first-rate. I have to say that it has improved and so has the town. I didn’t notice any part of the area that was not first class.
The drive to Monterey was beautiful although it does seem that the highway is much bigger than I remember. We are camping almost downtown, at the golf course, right next to the fairgrounds and the airport.
