Day 16 Santa Cruz to Carmel Valley

Another foggy morning, alas, this is the coast.  The fog soon burns off as we make our way south.  Lots of strawberry fields...forever!  It's interesting that this stuff grows all the way to the ocean...not in Oregon, though


I thought about a taste test, but there were too many people around!  Like Leo, with his camera!

Some of the area farms were growing plastic sheeting.  Apparently, when the plastic is ripe, they cut it and roll it up on cardboard tubes.  There's one in the foreground. Hmmmm...really?


I'll take this fits me just right


A couple more, just for fun


Here's our hero...headed for Monterrey!

Beautiful Monterrey Bay

Fisherman's Wharf in Monterrey

A view from 17 Mile Drive. Houses(castles) in the millions of dollars all along the drive...and stunning views...and Spyglass and Pebble Beach Golf Courses...


Find Waldo...or Leo


And then we cruise through Carmel and up Carmel Valley


More Carmel Valley and the end of our beautiful 72 mile day
