We left Upland in the wee hours, to avoid traffic thru Los Angeles. We had a campsite reserved a little north of Monterey, so we got on the 1 at Santa Monica and began our 4 day journey up the Pacific Coast Highway.
after two weeks in the dry heat, it was quite a shock to get to the beach and find it too chilly.
the brown pelicans that I enjoy watching so so much
we saw this pretty "beach grass" all along the coast
in Monterey someone pasted the pages of Steinbecks "Cannery Row" on the seawall
