Monterey…More Tourists Than Fish !

 Monterey is one of the more beautiful coastal cities of  California and can make for a great two-day trip for those visiting  San Francisco or a weekend getaway for California natives. It was originally the state capital of California, and has more historic buildings in its downtown than any other city west of Santa Fe. Today it is most commonly known for its beautiful coastline, its world-class aquarium and from the many John Steinbeck novels that used the town as their setting, including Cannery Row and Tortilla Flat.

Heading north from the wharf, a bike path runs two miles to Pacific Grove along Cannery Row – named after John Steinbeck’s literary portrait of the rough-and-ready workers of its seafood plants. Since abandoned, the canneries reopened in the 1970s as malls and restaurants, and now teem with tourists instead of fish.     Information from ( www.canneryrow.com.  ).

We were only there for 3 hours so I didn’t get many photos so  please feel free to pass these photos on…

I love this old coastal town, I felt like I was walking into one of  John Steinbeck novels, my personal favorite  is Cannery Row .

  Hope everyone has a simply adventurous week !
