Southward bound back to LA, we began our day with a stop in Monterey Bay. As we strolled along the shore we came across one cove with what we thought was a rocky beach--but the rocks turned out to be harbor seals basking in the sun! Monterey is also home to Cannery Row, a center for sardine distribution and these days shops and restaurants.
For the rest of the drive we took the Pacific Coast Highway. The sky was clear and the view of the glistening Pacific was outstanding. It may have added hours of travel to traverse the cliffs overlooking the ocean, but it was absolutely worth it.
