Favorite memory: So many. Strolling the beach at sunset with my wife, Judy. Kayaking on Monterey Bay with my younger son, Alex. Going on a whale watching trip with Alex when he was pretty young, and seeing amazing, massive blue whales. Gobbling platters of calamari with Judy, Alex and my older son, Mitch, at Fisherman’s Wharf after one of Mitch’s tennis matches.

What is Monterey famous for: Early on, the abundance of noisy, frenetic canneries and the seemingly endless numbers of fish harvested from the bay. Somewhat later, the writer John Steinbeck, a personal favorite, and his book, “Cannery Row.” Now, Monterey is probably best known for its magnificent aquarium, built and funded largely by the family of David Packard, a founder of Hewlett-Packard. His daughter, Julie, is a marine biologist who’s been the guiding light for the aquarium since it opened in 1984.
