DH and I got home last night from CA. We go fairly often to visit his elderly mother. This time, while we were there, we spent one day in Monterey, CA. We hadn't been there for a long time, and what a treat it was to visit again. It is a beautiful town on the coast. We got there at lunch time and headed straight to Bubba Gump's Shrimp Co. Yum, yum! If you get a chance to eat at one of these restaurants, go for it! Monterey has a fantastic walking trail along the beach, and lots of lovely, and at the wharf, funky, cute shops. The Cannery section of Monterey, where Bubba Gump's is, is based on John Steinbeck's Cannery Row.
This is a view of the dock just before we entered the wharf area.
And then there are the sea lions. Talk about lazy creatures. There were dozens of them laying there in the sun.
Bubba Gump's Shrimp Co. What a great concept for a restaurant. It's based on the movie Forrest Gump. This one is right on the beach, and we had beautiful views to enjoy with delicious food! I had a shrimp po' boy, and loved every bite. We walked for an hour or so, and then got dessert from the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.
And this is a lovely view from our walk along the trail.
