The rain made the view all the better.
The drive along the coast is amazing no matter what Mother Nature is up to. Behind the museum entrance, Pacific House has a gorgeous courtyard. A small fountain with koi sits in the center, Adobe walls all around, and shady trees. A quiet, Pacific, rest place.
So many lovely flowers, even in the winter! My first whale sighting! Cannery Row- formerly the west coasts largest sardine producing area, now focusing on hooking tourists. Have been on their tours twice so far. They are professional and the boats are good size - easy to get around from side to side (I always seem to be on the side where the whales were not!!) #localgem Cute seals playing and sunning. Grilled oysters with Japanese BBQ Sauce! #delicious #food #foodie West Coast Style Cold Water Lobster Roll! #delicious #foodporn https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monterey_Bay Seeing the jellies in a new perspective, just a captivating.

Also try the spics salami. YUM! Situated in a large yet unassuming warehouse on Cannery Row, this was the most amazing place to take my children; even teenagers are awed by the plethora of exhibits. A common sight along the streets of this quaint city. Very well-made wind chimes. All of them very pretty . Great souvenirs in all the shops over there., From the Love this place! The most beautiful succulent ground cover along the drive through Pebble Beach community. Who knew that sardines can move in such fluid, musical motion? Simply captivating. Eerie resident of the Aquarium. That's a seahorse, not a weed! Established in 1959, the Cottage of Sweets is a mainstay in Carmel-by-the Sea.

One of the outdoor observation decks at the aquarium and outdoor pools. Interactive displays and exhibits, telescopes, and information galore, plus lots of great looking aquariums and exhibits.

Before the workers are up and you can only hear the sound of the ocean (and the sea lions). The ghost tree, so called due to its bleached appearance is a beautiful stop in the 17 mile drive on Pacific costal route. One of the best reasons to go to Monterey is for their clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl. Am I right? ;)
