My husband and I will be staying at Quail Lodge in Carmel Thursday aug 1 through Monday aug 5. We plan to use this as our base for exploring the area. We understand this is a busy time in the area and are trying to plan things in a way that we are doing activities at the most opportune/least crowded time. So my questions are as follows. Point lobos should we plan on getting there right at opening as I have read, or do you think we will be able to get into the park at say 2ish and hang until later in the day? Driving and hiking Big Sur area, ( planning spending at least half a day) is it best to get an early start or a later start in the day? The aquarium, everything says get there at opening except their website. Any idea which is better? Sorry for the long question. We are traveling without our kids and have a few days to explore so we can be more flexible in the timing of things. Thank you.
