Monterey, California

Last week we went on a vacation to Monterey, California. I don't remember when the last trip we took together, outside of work, was. It's been a long time.

The weather wasn't ideal but it was better than here and really wasn't that bad. For some reason 55 degrees felt a lot warmer in California than North Dakota.


The first day we went to the Laguna Seca golf course. Tim took a golf lesson and I went to the driving range. My hands were sore after hitting my bucket of balls.

Next we headed over to the Del Monte course and golfed 18 holes. The weather was perfect!



That evening we went down to Fisherman's Wharf for supper. I love crab legs so I decided to try the dungeness crab, it was good but I've decided I like snow crab legs better.




After dinner we walked along the shore down to the shops, restaurants and bars of Cannery Row.


The next morning we woke up to rain so decided to go out for a drive and see some of the sights and scenery.

The Links at Spanish Bay golf course

The Lone Cypress Tree

Pebble Beach 18th green

Pebble Beach Pro Shop
By the afternoon it had stopped raining so we went to the Bayonet Blackhorse course and golfed another 18 holes.


The course was beautiful but there was WAY too much sand!

Day three, it rained all day. Perfect day for drinking wine! We drove to Carmel valley and toured the Chateau St. Julien winery. I was looking forward to visiting a winery during our trip and seeing the vineyards. The tour guide was fun and gave us a lot of information.




After the tour we went to Carmel by the Sea and drove along the coast looking at all the neat cottages.


It was a great trip We both decided we definitely go back!
