I'm thinking of taking in a play on my way home tonight. The play is Cannery Row, the place is Salinas. That would mean I'd get back on the road at about ten...Get home quite late. So either stay in a motel or tough it out, depending on how awake I am. I don't especially like driving at night because my night vision isn't great, but I do like it in other ways.

It seems foolish to do this, yet it's an opportunity to see a play in another community, a local play developed from the book, and it could be a good experience.

On my way up I stopped in King City for lunch. Usually I just pull into a shopping center near the highway but this time I decided to find the downtown. I did, and I ate at a pizza place. It's rather a typical older downtown, trying to scrape by. I found myself thinking about what I would do if I found myself stuck in King City. It's interesting to me to explore other places in this way. I would have looked for what is of interest. One thing that is, for sure, is the number or tortillerias there. I was tempted to stop in and buy a dozen fresh tortillas but I managed to restrain myself. I also looked at the downtown from the perspective of the visiting planner. What needs to be done to make this downtown more vital? It's a tough question and I don't think street furniture is the answer.
