Lovers Point Park – Pacific Grove, California #3

I’ve restructured our blog format. I hope you like it!

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails South Jetty RV Resort in Florence, Oregon. I’ve been here several times before. I plan to depart from here June 5th. I’ll slow my pace and spend the rest of May and most of June along the Oregon coast. Then into the State of Washington for the summer.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. I’m hoping she will be able to rejoin me sometime after July 4th.

Now is a good time to finish-up the photos sets from my visit to Monterey California a couple of months ago… 

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 23rd.

Today’s subject – Lovers Point Park adjacent to Monterey, California…

According to local legend, this park was originally called “Lovers of Jesus Point,” back in the era when Pacific Grove was a Methodist retreat camp. Since the late 1800s, the beach at Lovers Point in Pacific Grove has been a popular spot for boating and swimming, and over recent decades surfers have joined the mix. Lovers Point Park has above all become Pacific Grove’s best-loved spot for picnics, plein air painting, and scenic photography. Because of its unique east-facing location, it is also one of the only spots on the West Coast where you can watch the sun rise over the water.

Locals can always be found lounging on the grass at Pacific Grove’s well-groomed 4.4-acre Lovers Point Park. Many visitors climb the rocks at the point for which it is named in order to get a spectacular view of Monterey Bay.

For over 100 years, Lovers Point Beach has been Pacific Grove’s most popular spot for shoreline recreation. Surfers love its reliable waves, while kayakers find it a perfect launching spot from which to get out on Monterey Bay and view the coastline and native wildlife. Scuba divers frequent the kelp forests here to get a close-up view of its marine denizens. Landlubbers can compete on the beach volleyball court. Lovers Point Beach is also the starting point for the infamous “Kelp Crawl” portion of the Triathlon at Pacific Grove.

Sixes To Florence, Oregon

Yesterday I drove the motorhome the 94 miles from Sixes to Florence, Oregon. The entire trip was on U.S. Highway 101 which I have driven several times before. I plan to depart from here June 5th.

I’ll slow my pace and spend the rest of May and most of June along the Oregon coast. Then into the State of Washington for the summer.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. I’m hoping she will be able to rejoin me sometime after July 4th.

Cape Blanco State Park Beach – Sixes, Oregon

The motorhome is parked in the yard of a friend. I’m planning to leave here later this morning. Now that I’ve arrived here, I’m planning to slow my pace and spend the rest of May and most of June along the Oregon coast. Then into the State of Washington for the summer.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. I’m hoping she will be able to rejoin me sometime after July 4th.

Yesterday Cheryl and I drove in her car the about two miles to the Cape Blanco State Park Beach.

I started by taking photos in her yard…

Bright sun, temperature around 60 degrees and a brisk wind made for a delightful walk on the beach. :)

Cape Blanco is known to have some of the windiest and rainiest weather in Oregon. You can read all about Cape Blanco by clicking this Wikipedia link…http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Blanco_%28Oregon%29

Yesterday was sunny at 65 degrees. Today’s forecast is cloudy/sunny and 59 degrees. A bit cool, but delightful and refreshing.

At Sixes, Oregon

The motorhome is parked in the yard of a friend. I’m planning to leave here tomorrow. Now that I’ve arrived here, I’m planning to slow my pace and spend the rest of May and most of June along the Oregon coast. Then into the State of Washington for the summer.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. I’m hoping she will be able to rejoin me sometime after July 4th.

Mary and I last visited Aaron and Cheryl here on October 3, 2011…

DSC00617

We last saw them on October 8, 2012 in Apache Junction, Arizona…

I first met Aaron and Cheryl in February, 1997 and we had been fast friends since that time. Sadly, Aaron passed away on February 26, 2013 doing what he really loved…dancing. He was truly a unique man…very funny and interesting. I miss his friendship greatly. Since that time Cheryl has had to carry on trying to adjust to widowhood. She is still adjusting.

They were married 23 years. She has created a “memorial shelf” containing his ashes and other articles he liked…

She now lives alone with her two cats. Here she is with Charlie…Lucky was out and about when I took this photo…

She finally gotten around to selling their 1996 36′ Elite motorcoach last year…

She now has a smaller RV Van.

Yesterday was cloudy/sunny at 67 degrees. Today’s forecast is cloudy/sunny and 59 degrees.

Wimer To Sixes, Oregon

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 182 miles from Wimer to Sixes, Oregon. I’m parked in the yard of a friend whom I’ll tell you about soon. I’m planning to depart here on Monday. Now that I’ve arrived here, I’m planning to slow my pace and spend the rest of May and most of June along the Oregon Coast. Then into the State of Washington for the summer.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. I’m hoping she will be able to rejoin me sometime after July 4th.

The first half of yesterday’s trip was mostly on U.S. Highway 199 also known as the Redwood Highway. Lots of twisting, winding and narrow roads over the mountains made photography impracticable while driving. The trip is unusual because from Oregon you have to go back into California for about one hour before crossing back into Oregon.

The second half of the trip was on U.S. Highway 101 along the southern coast of Oregon. Here are some of the photos I took along the way…

Yesterday was cloudy and breezy with rain showers at 56 degrees. Today’s forecast is partly cloudy with spotty rain and 58 degrees. A little cool which I’d rather be than too hot!
