We checked out of Pacific Hotel in Monterey at 12 noon. We no longer lingered in the area for lunch because Monterey was overflowing with tourists and it would be physically difficult to keep a safe distance from other humans.
We drove to San Jose for gas and ate In N Out burgers behind their building. We found some cemented round tables under a roof. Grabe sa init pala dito sa San Jose!
We made a quick stop at the cemetery to visit my parents. There was a Latina woman selling flowers at the memorial park’s gate I grabbed a bunch for $5, or maybe $7? I forgot na.
I don’t know why but I always shed tears every single time I visited them. Nalulungkot pa rin ako. It’s been 20 years since my father died and maybe 17 years since my mom passed away but I still feel my grief. Oh well, humans can’t live forever, I myself would be gone too someday. And the circle of life continues.
