Adventures On The Monterey Peninsula

December 20, 2016

The four Mirankers are staying and playing on the Monterey Peninsula for a few days before Christmas. Glen, Cathy and Emily arrived (with Millie) mid-afternoon on Tuesday; Molly will arrive Wednesday afternoon.


We're staying in oceanfront rooms atop the dunes next to Marina State Beach. It was shirt-sleeve weather when we settled into the adirondack chairs, above, for a late picnic lunch and during a 90-minute walk along the beach. But as the sun dropped we were grateful for the warmth of blazing fire pits, and later, the fireplace in our room.

Our plans include questing for sea otters via kayak on Elkhorn Slough; hiking the beach from Marina to Moss Landing; biking through Fort Ord, and exploring Asilomar.
