We wake up in Monterey. We stayed two nights in this beautiful town. We spent over an hour reorganizing the car and all our stuff. After checking out of our motel we went for a late morning walk along the ocean. Here you are not walking ON the beach, but on pathways ABOVE the beach and the rocks at the ocean. The pathways here are so well maintained and well used. There are many walkers and bikers out this morning.
We head over to the Monterey Bay area to eat at Bubba Gump Shrimp restaurant. We then head out toward San Francisco . I am looking forward to being there. We stay along the coast until we get to Santa Cruz. We end up in an area that is a huge amusement park. I do not like what part of this town we see. We quickly escape and are soon on the road again
Somehow we get turned away from the coastline and end up headed toward San Fran on a multi-lane freeway (they do not call them interstates here). Since it is 5:00 traffic, we get off the freeway and shop in San Jose and get some yogurt ice cream. Because the GPS was predicting super bad traffic, we find a back road and ended up going across a mountain with some awesome trees.... it was a wonderful drive... and we got back to the coastline.
We traveled up the coast until we got to Half Moon Bay, a beautiful community, and then headed for our hotel in San Mateo, right at the San Francisco International Airport. We checked in for a two night stay.
