Carmel Vacation – Coastal Drive and Fisherman’s Wharf

Home » Blog » Family » Carmel Vacation – Coastal Drive and Fisherman’s Wharf

On Tuesday the women went to downtown Carmel for some shopping and the guys took a drive south along the coast and grabbed some lunch. Craig, Rick, and I were in a convertible and toughed out the cool drive along the ocean. There were a lot of old bridges along the drive which was neat. We ate at restaurant along the coast and watched and listened to big waves hitting the rocks. That evening we went down to Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey to walk around and have dinner.

You can see one of the old bridges in the distance.

It took a lot of patience waiting for a big wave that was higher than the rocks.

I didn't capture one, but a few waves actually went over this rock!
