Monterey is Lovely




We've had a small amount of time to begin our explorations through Monterey.  What we've seen has been beautiful.  The coast is crisp, be it the cut of the landscape or the continuous breeze, it's unique in its own right.  We had a chance to take the 17 mile drive as well.  There we saw the beautiful Monterey Cypress.  We've seen the trees all over since arriving but were bewildered by what the name of it was.  We saw the Lone Cypress as well.  Supposedly this was the tree that inspired the designer of Pebble Beach Golf Course.  The Course was beautiful.  I have always been a skeptic when it comes to golf courses and such, but this was lovely very pristine and well manicured.

Oh I can feel that ocean breeze! Looks nice and refreshing! We are hot down here now, but our breeze does kick in once and a while. :)

Alright Christie
What do you mean a skeptic about golf courses?
