Monterey, California

We had clam chowder at the London Bridge Pub & Grill. The pub has a relaxed atmosphere.  The walls were decorated with some interesting signs to read. The clam chowder was thick & tasty. I loved it!

Point Pinos Lighthouse in Pacific Grove, California

The Point Pinos Lighthouse is in Pacific Grove, California. The Point Pinos lighthouse is the oldest continually operating lighthouse on the West Coast and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The lighthouse was built in 1855, it’s on the northernmost tip of the Peninsula. Before the lighthouse construction, this point had proved dangerous to sailors who mistakenly believed they had reached Monterrey Bay.

It cost $2.00 per person for a tour of the lighthouse. We visited the lighthouse on a Saturday so it was open at 1:00. There were several volunteers inside to answer questions.

 It was exciting to see inside of the lighthouse. I enjoyed the shipwreck display, huge foghorn & so much more. The volunteer downstairs told us some good information about the lighting system. It was worth the $2.00.

I’m sure it must have been beautiful looking out at the sea everyday. I envy those lighthouse keepers.

Happy Travels!
