Polynesian Festival and Races

DSC04762

Darlene and I dropped in to see the Polynesian Festival and Outrigger Races at the Santa Cruz Wharf on Sunday morning.  Apparently anyone can sign up as teams in advance and compete in the races.  We also stopped into the free Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary Visitor Center.  It’s a small center with some nice exhibits and videos, including a tank where you can drive around a remote-operated submersible.

Classic Car Show

Clay and I went to the Palo Alto Concours d’Elegance at Stanford to see some classic cars… and the Tesla Roadster!

 
Okay, it was really just to see the Tesla but the classic cars were great too!
