Burger, Fries, And A Cup Of Chowda! @ Montery Bay Aquarium

(click to embiggen)
No I didn't put that much mayo on my burger, used knife
to only have about 1/4 of it left on my burger.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the Monterey Bay Aquarium. I hadn't been in about 10 years.  Of course the building hasn't changed much, and a few of the exhibits have been changed around but its pretty much the same ole same ole from 10 years ago, which is still pretty amazing!  I was able to hang out all day from lunch until closing, so about 6 hours.  I originally wanted to attend on a weekend for the late hours but even on a weekday it was pretty busy, it being the last week in August right before school started.  I gather the crowds might be the last jaunt for families and their kids before going back to school.

Rather than get a late start taking photos by eating outside the Aquarium we decided to eat at the cafĂ© within the Aquarium.  Other than having to stand about 15min in line the food wasn't too bad and somewhat seasonally priced.  Of course I had to have the clam chowder (spelled and said chowda ;) ) as its one of my favorite things since childhood.  It was good but not as good as I'd hoped.  I'd say one or two notches above a "canned" variety, a touch too thick to be good chowder. Also that mayo glob was place there by my over zealous condiment pumper friend who I think is trying to kill me for my camera gear, I scraped off all but 1/4 of it with my knife.  Hehe.
