As one last pre-baby trip, I went to Monterey and Pacific Grove, California to visit a friend from college for the weekend. Most people know that I do not have a deep love for California, but I have to admit that this area was gorgeous and nearly equal to my love of Sequoia National Park.
While all the locals were praying for rain, I relished the unusually warm and sunny weather. This ocean views were just blocks from where my hosts lived. I decided these towns were perfect for me because they were easily walkable.
The wildlife was up close and personal.
To my delight, I found that there were depictions of whales all over the town. I love whales ...
... and sea life of almost every sort.
We drove down Route 1 and enjoyed the amazing views of Big Sur. On my final evening, we watched the sunset at Asilomar Beach which is perhaps one of the most beautiful views ever.
