Monterey, California

 Monterey California

Third stop on our journey along the California coast is Monterey. We've already visited the fairy tale city Carmel-by-the-Sea and the dreamy Pacific Grove



Monterey was the capital of Alta California under both Spain and Mexico. In 1846 the U.S. flag was raised over the Customs House, and California became part of the United States after the ensuing Mexican-American War.

Nowadays, Monterey is home to the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium, a must-see attraction that delights millions of visitors every year. Step outside the Aquarium and you're on Cannery Row, where John Steinbeck drew inspiration for his novel about life in Monterey during the heyday of the sardine canning industry. Today "the Row" is lined with hotels, shops and restaurants.

I don't normally post music but I think this song is perfect for this road trip. 
Enjoy the rest of the week!
