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.

(April 2017) Mural near cannery row 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! 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! Visit the aquarium. Be a part of a community capturing wonderful jellyfish! 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.
Although I tend to not like keeping animals in enclosures, large aquariums can be invaluable resource to educating the general public about the importance of protecting our oceans and the many types of marine life. NO EDITING: this surfer cought series of waves. The sun was awake but the weather was freezing, and it was July.... :) Popular marina destination offering numerous eateries & shopping, plus views of sea lions & otters. Good aquarium with some wonderful displays. The jellyfish were stunning! Throwback to one of my most favorite places. This aquarium is truly one of a kind and deserves a spot on anyone's bucket list . Secret: if you are aaa member, take advantage of a great discount. Beautiful walk along Pacific grove! Fish and Chips. Another wonderful dish from Cindy's Waterfront! Burata Tartine! #delicious #foodporn Winter beach day in Carmel. #lifeatexpedia Great views of the bay. The cioppino and chowder are great too! #seafood #montereybay #restaurant A scenic drive along 17-mile drive on Monterey Peninsula California is fantastic. You can park any over-look at the side of road walk toward the Pebble Beach to the ocean. Watching this was quite relaxin. the beach is superbe Early morning sunrises in Monterey, California are so peaceful. 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? ;)

#USA #Monterey #ocean #LKsAwayDays Great place for picnic Fisherman's wharf in Monterey Fun Place to hang out. Great shops, beautiful ocean view and good eats. One of the best aquariums I've been to. There's something marvelous about looking at sea life next to a loud and angry ocean. Cannery Row is a great place to visit also, some shopping and dining, including fresh seafood.. Yum! Theres places to eat overseeing the bay and hotel rooms overlooking the bay also. Great place to watch the sun rise. View from behind Ed Ricketts old laboratory Pomegranate Marg. This place has great Mexican food and drinks, neat décor, and awesome views of the bay. We wanted just a light dinner, and the Fish Hopper's The View from here. Clam chowder in sourdough bread bowl available at each restaurant along the Old Wharf.

(April 2017) On a trip that we took down the coast of California, we stopped in Monterey and walked along the coastline. Came across these two beautiful starfish on a rock. Fisherman's Wharf is a historic wharf in Monterey, California, United States. Used as an active wholesale fish market into the 1960s, the wharf eventually became a tourist attraction as commercial fishing tapered off in the area.
