Happy Fence Friday {Down in Monterey} Edition!

♫ The Animals – Monterey ♫


I enjoyed a glorious day on the wharf in Monterey. This delightfully rusty & crusty nautical chain fence drew my eye immediately with its sweeping view across the bay to the whimsically colored buildings on the wharf. I lolled about on the wharf & footpath for a few hours listening to the sea lions barking, watching the gulls wheel about the bay and soakin' up the coastal ambiance. So wishing I was there right now!!

    I can't see any otters playing in the water though? I didn't see any the day I was there either - but I sure was looking hard!! Hope you had a Happy Friday and are having a super weekend!!

    Gorgeous Trina. Absolutely gorgeous. Such beautiful detail, and I love the vibrant building background bokeh........ bbbbbb..... but I digress. I simply love this. And I adore sea lions. I have a dream of visiting the ones out in Ca some day.

    I have always wanted to live there. I think, right after Yosemite, it's my favorite place in the world. I think you caught the essence of the wharf in this shot. I can almost smell it. And I mean that in a good way. -:)
