Wow! Wandering along the Monterey Bay Coastal Trail is an incredible way to intimately commune with almost everything Monterey has to offer; beaches, the pacific ocean, shops and restaurants, people. It was warm and beautiful when I started out, but being the beginning of March and right on the Pacific Ocean, the fog started rolling in about mid afternoon. Though build in the 1980’s, the Monterey Bay Aquarium was designed to replicate the old cannery’s that were busy here in earlier times. By the time I got to the backside of the building , there was a wonderfully eerie ominousness trying to make its way inland, giving it that real old world feel.
