My Day in Monterey

I thought I would share a few photos of my day in Monterey Ca with all of you. It's always a very nice day trip for us to take while I am out there. It always amazes me how many people are out walking around, riding bikes, sitting on benches.. and so forth. Don't those people work?????

We ate Fish and Chips on the boardwalk at Fisherman's Wharf. Here is where we ate.. lol it seems like we always eat at this restaurant every time we come.. and believe it or not we some how end up at the same table each time also :)

Here is what the view looked like from our table. Isn't it wonderful. My Uncle and I discussed how much it possibly cost to keep a boat moored there at the pier. I bet its more than I make in a month!!!!

I could not resist taking photos of these pretty California Poppies :)

Looking from one side of the board walk to the other on the pier ;)

Here are some of the local residents sun bathing... even though the temps were only in the low 50's :)
Aren't they cute... one of the seals swam by the Restaurant while we were eating. It is so fun watching them move about. They are so graceful and so pretty swimming in the water. I must admit they are sort of loud with all their barking.

Here is a photo of the surf. The waves were not as big as I though they would be for this time of year. There were some guys getting prepared to go out and hang 10 even though the waves were not big:)

Here is another wonderful photo of the ocean :)

I have decided this is the house I would purchase if I could own a house in Monterey.
Isn't it pretty.. it sits up on the hill and it over looks the ocean :) Wouldn't that be a wonderful site to wake up to each morning.
The Surf :)
Here is how it look out the front window of the SUV all the way there and back.. and this isn't even the commute traffic!!!!!
