Monterey, CA July 17-26, 2017

The Central California Coast  is arguably one of the most desirable areas.  It's rich history, beautiful weather and views make it a fun place.  Unfortunately, it's too expensive to live here.  Think how crowded it would be if it were less costly!!  Either way, we really enjoy visiting Monterey and Carmel by the Sea.

The shops and restaurants at Old Fishermans Wharf are a big tourist attraction

It's nice to see that an artist can create beauty on this old, demolished building foundation.  And I'm not talking about the guy on the right side!!

Monterey is well known for it's Cannery Row.  This is the area that supported numerous Sardine Canneries, the last of which closed in 1973.

Are we having fun yet?  Yes, she made me go to a wine-tasting...

Carmel by the Sea has so many unique shops and homes.  This is one of the little courtyards we found  

We had dinner and drinks here at Clint Eastwood's Hog's Breath Inn.  (He no longer owns it)
