Well first I went for a little run to get that done for my runstreak.
And then finally we were on the road to Monterey. It feels so weird to go there now without Jessica there or with us. I think the last time we went was for the Big Sur Half Marathon last year. Jess moved herself home from college so we didn't even drive up there for that.
We took the kids so we didn't take our bikes. Riding bikes there is really my favorite place to ride. That coastal trail there is just so beautiful. I think if we were rich we would move close to there, we both enjoy it so much.
We ended up going to the Sand City beach again. If you go on the left side of the hotel there there are less people (we learned that by accident last time we were there). It was kind of windy when we first got there but after a bit I didn't even notice it.
We all had fun combing the beach for treasures. I found some sea glass, which was cool.
This sign was all in Spanish with no English version near by. So weird. I think it says if you don't speak Spanish you might drown but I'm not sure.
We figured out that where the big clumps of sea weed stuff is, that's also where all the treasures are.
No idea what this is but there was a bunch. Some kind of sea critter.
We had a lot of fun until Scott started checking his fantasy football scores. Then he was all depressed and grouchy. REALLY? We drove 2 hours so he could pout about football.
After we left the beach we stopped at Target where I ran in and bought Trevor a change of clothes. Probably should have paid attention to the fact that he wore jeans to the beach.
Melissa and I waiting for him to change in the car....
Then we went down to Fisherman's Wharf. Scott really wanted to go get some of that fantastic cheesecake we had last time we were there. We walked down to the restaurant and then noticed it wasn't even the same name anymore. Total bummer.
Instead of cheesecake we ended up trying another new to use restaurant called Abalonetti Bar and Grill. I noticed they had some happy hour drinks so I had one of those while Scott was still pouting about his cheesecake and fantasy football.
Trevor ordered the shrimp cocktail . Then half an hour later asked what was for dinner lol.
I went for bad and got the fish and chips.
After lunch we walked down to Cannery Row. I have a few pictures over the years of the kids and Scott with the Hoffman Ave. sign down there.
Looking the other way..
While we were walking Scott popped out of his depressed mood and then couldn't understand why I wasn't all happy anymore. Sheesh.
It really was a beautiful day there though. I wished we were spending the night but we all had work and school the next day. We're going to have to plan another trip so that we can ride our bikes again!Pin It
