Weekend getaway at Monterey....

I got a chance for a little getaway and stayed at the http://www.oldmontereyinn.com/ in Monterey, CA.

It poured rain the whole time except for about three minutes at sunrise, but it was still a great time and the inn has great service. The inn with its 1920's charm has a full kitchen with staff and chef a spa and manicured english gardens all making it hard to leave.  I have to say I did fling my 24-70L lens about 5 feet onto the concrete and damage it, but I tried not to let that ruin the trip. With all the rain I put my camera gear away and called it a weekend without any real great pics. All in all a great weekend though but much too short.

One of only around a half dozen handheld shots I got in the pouring rain before the sun vanished for the rest of the day.

I didnt even get my gear setup in the pouring rain as the sun dissapered about 45 seconds after this. Oh well.
