Monterey and Pebble Beach

We got off to a pretty early start, heading to Monterey. Our first stop was actually at Moss Landing, a small fishing village and the home of Phil’s Fish Market. This place was once home to a  Bobby Flay’s Throwdown episode…

We had the bread bowl of clam chowder and it was yummy and very filling.

We then started our trek south on Hwy 1…

We arrived in Monterey needing fuel and worried at what the prices would be. We had seen it for $4.76 a bit earlier and passed it up. Downtown Monterey we got it for $4.33. Go figure!

Great ocean views. Those seals are cute to watch, but as I recall they really smell bad :(

My favorite place in the who world. We used to spend a lot of time there when Fort Ord was open, great camping, wonderful golf, and the best part at prices we could afford! Hugs

That is really a beautiful area, one of many in California.
