Cannery Row and Monterey offers alot to see and enjoy

It is hard to believe there are so many flowers in bloom as in my town it is barely waking up from winter and not a flower in site anywhere...even the tulips are barely peeking out in the cold air.

A statue of John Steinbeck sits in front of the ocean view.

A Flower Bonsai shop has alot to offer in the way of color and beauty.

What is more fun that a polka dotted door? Not much.

Every other building and shop is called "John Steinbeck" something here on Cannery Row. Interesting people hang out here and wonderful scenery of the ocean and trucks delivering goods for sale and also to restaurants. It is a bustling place.

Here is Mel with her Starbucks as we walk and peek in the windows of Cannery Row.

This street is so interesting. There is alot of history here in Monterey and good restaurants and shops to spend your money. If you would like a nice little vacation, Monterey Peninsula is the answer. Lots to see and do. The ocean and the beauty, the smells (good) and the people all add up to wonderful adventure.
