Museum Of Monterey, California #4

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. I’ll drive the Bronco about 45 miles there today. I’m expecting to arrive Mary’s home in Murphys, California tomorrow.

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 through about May 20th. This works well for me because I’ll be in an “idle period” during that time. During my time at Mary’s, 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 – Museum Of Monterey…

Located across the plaza from both the Old Custom House and the Pacific House Museum is the Museum of Monterey.

The Museum of Monterey – Stanton Center tells the history of Monterey and the surrounding area through the lens of its connection to the sea. Free to the public, it houses thousands of artifacts. It includes permanent exhibits on the USS Macon disaster off Point Sur, the Ohlone and Rumsien tribes that once lived in the area, the Spanish exploration of the California coast  and the Monterey sardine industry. It is operated by the Monterey History and Art Association.

In the below Google Earth image the Museum Of Monterey is marked by the yellow “x”…

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