Telfer and I just got back from Monterey – I went to the Internet Librarian conference and he actually got to come with me! This is literally the first time in 3.5 years that Telfer has been able to go on vacation without textbooks or medical paraphernalia…while I was conferencing, Telfer laid by the pool, brought me lunch, read books, and plugged his Xbox into the hotel t.v. and played his new Halo 2 to his little heart’s content.
My conference was really, really good – just the right blend of new ideas and trends without total information overload. I am especially interested in RSS, blogging, searching (both engines and techniques) and other techie stuff. I enjoyed the conference by day and Monterey by night. Telfer and I went to several good restaurants, including a night out with a couple of my colleagues.
The drive up Highway 1 to Monterey is simply beautful. We stopped this time in Cambria to see the town and eat at Robin’s. Salmon bisque is my new favorite food of all time. You can click on the "Telfer and Andrea" photo album to see more pictures of our Monterey trip.
