    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.

We walked along the riverbank in reasonable temperature of 30+ till we reached the town centre. It has 1 main street with lovely trees and cafes scattered along it. Found a great local coffee …

The castle sits way up in the hills and was built by a wealthy man called William Hearst. We arrived at the bottom of the hill to be ferried up to the castle by the bus …

    ... really looking forward to that one) full of old planes, cars, bombs, rockets and memorabilia. After lunch( which was large enough to feed a small nation - and it was just a sandwich ) Julia suggested a more scenic route to Carmel by the Sea - more direct were the words I think I heard. It looks straight on the map she says!!!!! So we turned of at Greenfield along the Carmel Valley Road. 2.5 hours later after 4375 curves and switchbacks we arrived at ...

    ... a little nap because i was tired. Still no answer from my friend so I didn't know what else to do. The nights in the camper were getting super cold so bundling up with a few layers and enclosing myself with a sleeping bag with three or four blankets on top was becoming the norm. The next day was slow but I finally got moving and went to check out downtown Monterey. Definitely a cute little area with a few different coffee shops to choose from. ...
