I had the pleasure of visiting some friends in California this past month. They live in Monterey and they are some great people! While I was there they were sure to show me around to some cool places and I did a fair amount of exploring on my own!
Monterey and the surrounding area is super nice! I was able to see some great sunsets in Pacific Grove and for you Steinbeck fans out there I spent a lot of time walking around Cannery Row and even visited the Steinbeck Center in Salinas. It was awesome! Here a few of the images from the trip, I hope you enjoy!
