    This motel is on a central location to the city centre and the boardwalk. The accomodation is comfortable and clean. The owner manager needs to learn how to be nice to people, he was extremely unfriendly and I wonder why he is in this area of business. He is the only place in America that wouldn't take our travel card as payment (which is just as good as cash) and then when paid in full still demanded a cash deposit. We overheard conversations with other people which was as unfriendly. I wouldn't return due to how rude he was! Beware.

    Hey everyone! I am writing from the Henry Cowell Redwood Park where we are camping in the forest. This morning we woke up in the Target carpark and went straight into Starbucks and the Bagel shop for breakfast. Very convienient sleeping in a shopping carpark! Then we headed down to the pier in Monterey to meet up with cousin Erin and her gorgeous dog Brooklyn. We saw lots of seals sunbathing on ...

    ... car park would be. Better to be early than wave it goodbye!

    The boat went out of the harbour past seals and sea lions sunning themselves on the rocks. At first it was fairly calm waters, but then across the Bay the wind came up a bit, making the waves roll just a bit. Thankfully Paul had packed our parkas in his backpack, as we needed them to protect us from the keen wind.

    Awesome Road Tripping!

    ... packed with holiday makers enjoying the drive, and we stopped numerous times to admire the views and also to spot lots of whales making their way up the coast! It was an extraordinary drive and one we will remember for ages! From there it was away from the coast and through some amazing vegetable and fruit growing regions, with artichokes being the major crop! Thousands of acres of the stuff! We stopped off in Monterey for a look at the lovely water front harbour and to have a ...

    ... was artisan and they had a number of young people training to become proper bakers on an artisan bakery programme. They are doing well! Although there was a large collection of other goodies, we managed not to succumb. At one point, there was a little no through road which went off towards the sea, so on impulse we followed it. Jetty Road. What a gift! From there we saw a load of sea birds, and then Jette spotted some sea otters. As we were looking, we heard ...

    ... Gate bridge and up to Muir Woods. Today was the first day that there was heavy fog since we arrived and you could barely see 5 meters ahead as went across the bridge. We have been very lucky with beautiful weather on this whole trip, but especially here in San Francisco where this type of weather is so rare. We drove up to Muir Woods, which is an incredibly windy road, with hair pin bends, and today it was so foggy ...
