I have enjoyed our stays at this particular cottage when we have been to the Monterey Bay area. Being close to the beach, it gets damp and cold. Nothing like a fire to warm you up and dry out the air on a chilly evening.

Walking up and down the boardwalk / bike path of Monterey and Pacific Grove, it was really a delight to see these boats, old and fading as they are. I am not sure what awaits them, but personally I thought they were rather cute (for lack of a better word) and would love to see them chugging around in the sea! The Metropolis film shifts the colors, and while the boats were faded in color, they were still quite bright in the sunlight.
My old, creaky bones don’t give me the pleasure of playing on rocks any more, much less climbing over fences to get to them. I rather envied these kids! There is something so enticing about perching above a clear bit of ocean – here, the Monterey Bay – and peering into the water below. Fish, anemones, kelp, rocks. Tide pools have the same fascination. As this neck of the bay is protected, the waters are clear and pristine. Wildlife, above and below the water, is readily seen.

Walking from Pacific Grove to Monterey, we encountered a plein air painter; this was the subject matter. Definitely worth a shot.

Toity poiple boids all poiched in a twee, toity poiple boids all choiping at me!
These guys were all lined up on the rocks, not trees, below the bike path in Pacific Grove. No idea what they are but they created lines and patterns, rather camouflaged, which took a bit to discern initially.
