I rented a bed at the Monterey Hostel where I would casually stroll to the Fisherman's Wharf and watch the Sea Otters while enjoying some clam chowder. Along the way, I watched everyone, humans and wildlife, interact with the ocean. I've been wanting the ocean life lately. I used to live near Monterey about 18 years ago. Being back in this coastal town brought back a flood of good memories.

I went to bird several places within walking distance and had fun. The key to traveling in California is to stay close to where you need to be so that you don't have to drive. Driving is the worst in CA! So I did everything on foot.
We went to a place called "Lover's Point" and sure enough, we found two of them making out on this bench! It was actually quite beautiful.
But no matter where we go, I always keep my eyes open for a possible new bird.......
My trek to Monterey is not over. I had one last day to bird and do some studies. Stay tuned for more........
