Monterey Bay & Cypress Tree

About an hour plus's drive towards south of San Jose, this place is a place for relax at weekend, there are many cypress trees around this area and they look very unique.


There's a big golf course here, many antique shops, a fisherman's whalf, an aquarium, and many seafood restaurants where you can enjoy the clam chowder soup. You can also skating, cycling , walk your dog here, or drive along the bay area, there are many stop-over that you can take a rest and enjoy the scenery.



One thing to take note is that the weather can change between the morning and the afternoon, it can be sunny in the morning but the sun can be gone in the afternoon, and it can be quite gloomy without the sun.



It's aslo a place where my diving training took place, the water was so cold in summer, about 60 plus degree fahrenheit in early morning.




We had to start very early in the morning as the tide is normally low at this time in the day, I was freezing and had worst headahce after every dive, that went on for many weekends, it was so painful to get my diving license, should have done it here locally, with the warm water and beautiful corals.

Hey Tat Oon, welcome back :) It's called sai(4) pu(3) lu(4) si(1) ... a direct translation, from my electronic dictionary.

i was trying to figure out what saipu lusi is in Chinese only to realise that it was from your electronic dictionary! I don't think that's accurate la...
