In place of the flickering florescent lights common to big-box grocery stores, sunshine illuminates the foods at Fresh from D'Vine, a farmer-focused indoor market in Salinas. Vibrant, in-season fruits and vegetables form little assemblages on wooden tables, as do bouquets of fresh-cut flowers. Most of the market's offerings come from growers in Monterey and neighboring counties, which helps to keep the store's carbon footprint to a minimum while ensuring that the freshness of its goods are at a maximum. Though the selection of produce changes with the seasons, some customer favorites include strawberries, artichokes, lettuce, heirloom tomatoes, raspberries, broccoli, and peaches.
Monterey Bay Aviation's instructors combine more than 18,000 logged flight hours to teach amateur aviators the principles of piloting. In the discovery flight lesson, soon-to-be-sky-people will first get acquainted with the surrounding Monterey Peninsula Airport in a brief facility tour. Learners will then meet with a pilot, who will explain the major parts of the Cessna 172 Skyhawk, debrief with a pre-flight checklist, and teach mandatory secret handshakes. After a quick weather briefing, the student will plop down on the pilot seat next to their instructor, kick-start the engines, learn how to taxi the craft, and perform a run-up. Finally, with the client behind the knobs, together the co-pilots take to the skies for about 45 minutes to revel in the panoramic local scenery and the assistance of an in-flight genie. Once grounded, the aeronaut will dish out post-flight details and future flight training options, such as official programs or investments in kite-suits.
