My mom's off for spring break (she's a teacher) so I went with the folks down to the Monterey Peninsula. I brought along my new Canon EOS-20D with the 18-55 kit lens (which isn't so hot, but it does the job for these purposes) and took some (if I may) great shots.

This composite shot shows the line for tickets. It felt a little like Disneyland, just without the ride at the end. In the shot on the bottom right you can see what that $20 per person ticket is going toward. For those who still don't get it, note the $25,000 collection of plasma TV's in the background.
