I thought I would share my vacation with you a bit, and I will still try to do regular blog posts, but it’s a little hard when one is busy looking at the ocean, eating yummy lunches, shopping and then napping in a perfectly quiet room (stretch)….
This morning I sat outside on our hotel patio and enjoyed my cup of coffee – here is the view from our door:
Today I went to Cannery Row and first things first – I went to Starbucks, where I got my White Chocolate Mocha and Coffee Cake (which was heavenly). I sat on a bench looking at the water while a lady nearby was stretching and doing yoga. Is it bad that I did not care that I was stuffing my face while watching her?
Next I went shopping! Actually I didn’t do too much shopping – but I did manage to go into a garlic store (very cool!), and a Ghirardelli store – it smelled heavenly. Then I stood and watched the sea lions. They really have it made. Can you see them?
All of that activity really made me hungry so I wandered into Bubba Gump’s for lunch. What a neat place! I had a table overlooking the water and the food was so, so good. I had clam chowder and a pasta with grilled prawns in a butter garlic sauce sprinkled with feta cheese:
Then I came back and took a much needed two hour nap! It was a wonderful day. Tomorrow I’m hoping to go to some beautiful spots I know further down in Monterey. It is really gorgeous.
I hope you are all having a good week!
