I love Monterey. I’ve loved Monterrey before it was the cool and hip local in Big Little Lies. I went for the first time almost a decade ago, and got to go with David for his first time two years ago. Just down the road from Monterey, is the gingerbread looking village of Carmel, and a little further in the nature lovers paradise, Big Sur. This past month, we got to spend a perfect day exploring, playing in the rain, eating great seafood, and gawking at sea lions. Some of our favorite places to explore when there are:

Bixby Bridge
Fishermans Wharf
Point Lobos
Lovers Point
Mcway Falls

Some of our favorite restaurants to enjoy in the area are:
Lafayette Kitchen
Big Sur Bakery
Old Fishermans Grotto
Water and Leaves
Little Napoli

The California coast is one of the prettiest places in the world, and we highly recommend spending some time up there.
