Monterey - part 2

Part 2 of Monterey trip.

There are a lot of statues around downtown Monterey. We were walking around and saw this one of John Steinbeck! He is a big name down in Monterey. This was taken on Cannery Row.

Bird picture. Yeah, DH really likes birds.

This is poison oak. It was actually labeled with a sign! We didn't touch it:)

More birds. (believe me, there are many many more bird pics not posted!)

We are standing at the end of Fisherman's Wharf. There are a LOT of boats down there!

Lovely sun reflecting on the water in the evening.

This is a diver's helmet. So heavy!

DH and I tried to get a picture of each of us with the waves nearly overtaking the little rock we stand on.

This is where we stayed.

Awesome rock bench!

Bird. Ahem. Notice the red feet.

The end. We had a lovely time. It was our first real trip (excluding family visits to Utah) since our honeymoon:)

Haha, at first I thought you wrote "diverse helmet". I stared at it for awhile trying to figure out why :)

oops, need apostrophe!

My favorite photos are the first one with David and Steinbeck and the one with you leaning back from the warf wooden sign. Really great photos. Sounds like you had a wonderful time. Glad you could get away.

I love the self-taken picture of you and David on the rock. You both look so happy. I love you guys.

What a fun trip! I didn't know Dave was so obsessed with birds. :) And the aquarium is pretty amazing - we'll have to take Hannah there when she can appreciate it for the price you pay. :) Happy 1 year anniversary!

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
