I searched and searched to find us the perfect place to lay our heads. Did we want to stay in one central location or split it up and stay one night further south? I even looked into staying in some amazing cliffside yurts at a beautiful property in the middle of nowhere. In the end, we decided on the Marriott across from Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey. That weekend was 1) Valentine’s Day weekend, and 2) a long weekend because of President’s Day. So most places within and without our price range were booked. We also decided that we didn’t want to drive further to the airport on our last day so we stayed central. I’m not complaining, it is a great hotel in a nice walkable area.
The view of the marina was fun.
There wasn’t much to see on the actual wharf but we went where no tourist has gone before. Well, probably not, but we were pretty much the only people we saw. We walked down below onto the docks and undercarriage of the wharf. Again, super photogenic.
Rob took this awesome pic with the Nikon
but most of the time he was doing this with his Mamiya. Yep, he’s pretty cool.
