Fisherman's Wharf, Monterey California

Old Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey Harbor is 1-2 blocks from the old downtown area. This historic wharf which is about a quarter of a mile long is made up of many restaurants, unique gift shops and charter boat companies for whale watching, fishing and bay tours. Today when we walked around, we were approached by several restaurants competing for our business by offering free samples of clam chowder and coupons for free appetizers. We also noticed racks of greatly discounted souvenir clothing some as much as 50% off. (Guess traveling off season has it's benefits!) The wharf is surrounded by a marina of fishing and pleasure boats. These boats are a beautiful sight against the golden hills in the background. To top our visit off, we watched sea lions on an old floating platform slumbering in the sun.
