We have turned around in San Luis Obispo and started northbound again. We travel on highway 101 this time in the middle of the Salinas River valley.
There are many different crops, different types of cabbage, walnut tree plantations, but mostly it is vines as far as you can see to the foothills on either side of the river.
We are back for a long stroll on Carmel Beach because it’s a treat for Mini to run around free and play with many other friendly canines. We also enjoy the great sunshine and warmth on the beach then tour downtown Carmel with the quaintest small size homes, tiny boutiques, quite a few art galleries. We have burgers at a patio at a fancy supermarket, cooked on the grill outside just for us.
We spend the rest of the day by the harbor in Monterey walking the giant pedestrian/cycle path entertained by the pinipeds’ barking.
So walnuts grow on trees! Very cool. Love the photos.
Sounds so relaxing.
