Old Fisherman’s Wharf – Monterey, California #1

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in Morgan Hill, California.

My eye surgeon at the VA Hospital in Palo Alto, California wants me back for a six-month post-operation examination of my cataract surgery. My appointment is scheduled for April 21st. Palo Alto is only about 40 miles from my current location. I’ll sit here until the 21st when I’ll drive the Bronco to Palo Alto. I expect to arrive at Mary’s home in Murphys, California on either April 22 or 23.

Recently I spent several days in Monterey…an area rich in beautiful scenery and history. A bonanza for a travel blogger! I ended up with 17 blog titles and 628 photos which I’ll present over the roughly next six weeks. This works well for me because I’ll be in an “idle period” during that time. Currently I’m sitting here in Morgan Hill (I’ve been here a number of times in the past) awaiting my VA hospital appointment. Then off to Mary’s home for about four weeks during which time I’ll do routine maintenance, minor repairs and cleaning. On about May 21, Mary and I are planning to head-out for Yellowstone National Park (and other destinations) in Wyoming. Till then, enjoy Monterey!

Today’s subject – Old Fisherman’s Wharf…

I have elected to begin my Monterey series with the most popular tourist spot in Monterey. In the below Google Earth image it is the shorter wharf on the left…

Of course, I took many photos of the harbor. Those photos will be seen in a blog posting with that title soon. Old Fisherman’s Wharf installment #2 tomorrow.

Tomorrow we will see more of the beautiful scenery and history that is part of Monterey, California!

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was sunny and 78 degrees. Forecast for today is cloudy with a few showers and 63 degrees.

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
