Getaway to Monterey

Uncategorized Add comments

    The boys had a week off this week and so did I.  I booked us a couple of nights at a nice hotel at Monterey to give us a little treat.  We had also planned to take Buddy to the boarding place so he could spend some time there as well.  A storm was coming; we were worried but at the end we decided to keep the trip.  We had to leave early on Sunday in order to drop Buddy off at the scheduled time.  When we arrived at Monterey, we went for a 4 mile hike at the Monterey Peninsula trail.  The weather was beautiful and the scenery was fantastic, but some of us were exhausted from the steps.  We then found a place for lunch before checking in to the hotel.  Connor and I explored around the hotel and Logan checked out the fitness room for a workout.  In the late afternoon, we all walked to Canary Row for some shopping and food.  We were all exhausted at the end of the day with 23,000 steps.


     We started the next day with a big breakfast at the hotel restaurant with a beautiful ocean view.  Afterwards, Logan brought up an idea to go see sea lions at the Sea Lion Point; I was happy with that suggestion as I was thinking about Point Lobos, so we made our drive there.  When we arrived, we realized how windy it was.  It was actually quite an experience to take a hike in this almost 40 MPH wind; we looked at the incredible waves while trying to avoid being blown away.  We definitely had a memorable moment despite no sea lions.


   We then went for a troll at the Carmel By the Sea, looking through some cool stores and galleries.  Then we found a burger joint for lunch.  By then, we had been eating so much that I was not even hungry, so I chose a milkshake and it was one of the best I had.  Connor liked it so much that he ordered one after his meal as well.  After returning to the hotel for a rest and a workout for Logan, we walked to Cannery Row for dinner; this time we chose a Japanese restaurant that had a long line the night before.  We had a great dinner and returned to the hotel lobby to play some cards before we ended the night.


     For the last Tuesday morning at the hotel.  Connor and I decided to walk out to grab a breakfast.  It was quite imagewonderful to take a short walk in the serene morning air.  We had stuffed ourselves again and brought back a breakfast for Stuart and Logan afterward.  This concluded our outing to Monterey; I could not believe we had such an incredible weather for it.
