I don't exactly know how it happened, but for two consecutive years we have been going to Monterey for our anniversary get-away. Whatever the reason is I'm very happy that it happened that way. It seems like I see something new each time I go to Monterey. For sure, I have never really gotten to all the "surface" that is Monterey.
This May we stayed in a beautiful hotel called Portola Hotel and Spa which is a few steps away from everything, especially the Old Fisherman's Wharf, which sadly I haven't seen before until that day. Imagine looking out from your hotel room and seeing the activity below on the wharf.
Here are what my camera captured while enjoying the lovely early evening light.
Splash says the harbour seals!
I am enjoying being a tourist in my own state.
