Very basic, Cheap, clean, dated but in good location

Motel was very reasonably priced and great location. Walking distance to the pier and boardwalk. Very dated motel and breakfast was cellophane wrapped parties with Tea/coffee no milk just powdered creamer. Surely a toaster and some bread and spreads couldn't be that expensive. Also, no aircon in room but did bring a fan up to us which was great.

Gav and I had breakfast then left boys to get ready while we caught a bus to the city to pick up the next hire car. We got a Toyota Rav 4 and it thankfully fits all the luggage.
Went back to the motel, boys were ready and we checked out.
Made our way on the freeway to "Silicone Valley". Visited Microsoft head quarters not much yo look at …

Pebble Beach

A travel blog entry by annapotz on Apr 07, 2015

... Cruise where we must have pulled into the wrong part of town as the people were less than friendly and there seemed to be an abundance of bums around. The vibe was bad so we hightailed to the next little camp called Costanoa which was very fancy with all the hook ups and cable as well as restaurant, spa and ...

We awoke to the alarm blaring at 5am Yes, you read that right 5am. Were we crazy? Were we insane? On holidays and up at the crack of dawn??? This early morning rise was to ensure that we made our way to Yosemite National Park. Our shuttle picked us up at 6.30 and took us to the Pier where we would meet the rest of our tour group on the long journey out to Yosemite. It was a four hour journey out to this visual feast for our tour group ...

Monterey, Morrow Bay & Santa Cruz

Our first stop on today's journey was Monterey which was only half an hour from Carmel. We could hear the seals as soon as we parked the van. There was a nice pier with the usual tatty gift shops that we walked along and des bought a bowl of clam chowder which everyone liked (even bella and myself). Morrow Bay was further up the coast and we heard elephant seals often hang out here so we thought ...

Seafood Heaven

I love Monterey! A small city, full of wine shops, artisan coffee bars and seafood restaurants on the Fisherman's Wharf – heaven. Seals bask on the sides of the wharf, half looking for scraps from fisherman as they clean their catch. I had coconut halibut tonight, washed down with a nice glass of house c******nay. Oh, and on the way here I drove through Vineyard Drive a short distance outside King ...
