Last Night Out on the Town

Whenever we go to Monterey, 
we always make sure to have fish and chip...
and the place we like to eat it is the London Bridge Pub.

Pavel's Backerei Breads and Pastries

Yesterday while strolling through town, we discovered Pavel's Backerei here in Pacific Grove.

Oh how delicious it smelled. We bought a large, round loaf of fresh sourdough bread for our shrimp dinner. 

Underneath the class, large, fluffy cinnamon rolls tempted us. Not one of us said a thing, but separately we were all thinking the same thing and went away dreaming of indulging in those cinnamon rolls.

Last evening, Bill brought up the idea that we should get some for Saturday's breakfast. We drove past the bakery to check the hours. It was about 6:00 P.M.. On the bakery door the sign read "Sold out"...they close early when they have sold out.  

We found that the bakery opens at 7:00 A.M., so out we headed early Saturday morning to fulfill our dreams. Those fluffy cinnamon rolls were not to be available until 8:00. So we settled on the delicious selection shown in the bottom right photo, above. Settled? I should say NOT! You can only imagine how absolutely delectable these pastries were!

One things for certain...we will all be talking about those cinnamon rolls we missed and make sure to have some on our next visit.

Moseying Around Monterey

Leisurely walking around Cannery Row, browsing the shops, sampling clam chowder, 
taking photos of random things all add up to a memorable afternoon stroll.

Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

Today we enjoyed a little day trip to Santa Cruz.
Arriving at the Boardwalk
Sun, Surf, and Sand
A long walk on the beach to...
Santa Cruz Harbor Lighthouse
Evening haze of ocean air and setting sun

A ride on the cable cars brings our day on the Boardwalk to a pleasant end.

Foggy Evening on Monterey's Rocky Shore

 We love foggy weather...
Climbing rocks...
 Rolling waves...

 Searching the tide-pools...
  Finding crabs...
 The Catch...

Searching for seashells and colored glass
We love Monterey!

The Cottage

 This week we are staying at the cottage in Monterey.
Just up the road from the ocean...

 5:44 A.M....the front porch
I love mornings!

 For some reason, the heater is not coming on, 
so we warmed the kitchen with the oven.
What's for Breakfast!

 Berry Pie
