There is a path to the beach that's 1/3 of a mile. Dogs are allowed on the beach here, so Mirra and I have been making the walk every day.
Bob and I haven't been in this area for 18 years. It was good to revisit the 17 mile drive ...
Bob had never seen the Monterey Aquarium, so we went on Monday. It was packed with kids on Easter Break. Nevertheless, we got to see plenty of exhibits and enjoyed our day.
We caught the penguin feeding at 3:00, and they were lots of fun to watch. Two of the penguins were raiding another penguin's house and moving the rocks into their own little abode.
Wednesday we went out to dinner at the Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch, and the prime rib was excellent.
The Mission Ranch has one of the most beautiful settings that you could ever want. Sheep are grazing in the pasture...
and you get this wonderful view of Point Lobos.
Tomorrow we head 70 miles north to New Brighton Beach State Park where we'll be able to enjoy more seascapes and ocean sunsets!
