    The morning started out very cold at 37 degrees and high speed driving so range went down quickly. We looked for a spot to charge in Monterey and found a location at Hayward Lumber that was very close to a very nice beach. We stayed for about 2 hours and got back to a full charge.
    Next stop Morro Bay for more free charging from J1772 and a short walk down to the warf and a very nice park where we saw sea otters and seals. We hung out there for longer than we needed, but it was so nice and relaxing we didn’t notice the time going by. The walk back up the car was hot though. But the car had more than enough buffer range so it was worth it.
