A Walk from Fisherman’s Wharf to Pacific Grove, California, 2012

After my morning kayak adventure, I needed to get the sea-whobble out of my legs and decided a long walk along the coast would do the trick.  I left Bertha parked at the boat ramp and headed south west towards Cannery Row and then into Pacific Grove.  I recommend first time visitors to Monterey, park near Fisherman’s Wharf and walk the same route, towards Cannery Row and Pacific Grove.  Parking is abundant near the Wharf and reasonably priced!  There are lots of shops, restaurants and cafes along the way where you can take a break!  Once you return to Fisherman’s Wharf, I recommend a bowl of clam chowder from one of the may restaurants!

Above and Below, a few reminders of what put Monterey firmly on the map at the beginning of the 20th century, the commercial fishing industry.  Thinking about sardines has made me hungry!

I am an adventure-loving American man, with a severe case of wander-lust and a desire to experience as much of this wonderful world as humanly possible. Every place I have visited or lived has taught me something about life and helped me grow. For me, traveling opens my eyes to how similar the human race is, yet at the same time, how unique we all are. I hope this blog will motivate you to put down the TV remote, dust off your backpack and decide to take a chance on an adventure. It can be a walk in a new neighborhood 2 miles from home or a trip to a far off distant land. I have lived in or visited over 50 countries during my life and hope to see many more. I want to share my experiences. I hope you enjoy the blog. -WAND3R3R, Somewhere on the Globe, 2014.
