Monterey and Carmel

Our last day in this area started off with a visit to the Fisherman’s Wharf at Monterey. We walked around, got several free samples of clam chowder, and did some window shopping. The mesmerizing salt water taffy puller at a candy store window convinced us to buy a handful for the road.

Right before the wharf, stands the first California State monument, the Monterey Custom House.

For lunch, we drove to downtown Carmel and ate at the Hog’s Breath Inn, which was founded by Clint Eastwood. We got the “Dirty Harry” Burger and it was very tasty.

Next, we headed to the Chamber of Commerce to get a pamphlet about the “Comstock Cottages.” DB found out about these structures on trusty Pinterest. We used the pamphlet to do a self-guided walking tour. This was exactly what we pictured Carmel to be: colorful, whimsical, and like something out of a storybook.

We really enjoyed our time visiting the California central coast. Next up – Santa Cruz!
