EATING, SHOPPING, FRESH FRUIT, LAUNDRY AND THE BEACH

Currently in Moss Landing CA (Low 52 Partly Sunny High 85) 

Yesterday was an easy day of eating, shopping, laundry and the beach. We headed to the nearby town of Marina California to get our Wal-Mart shopping fix. We went with a tried and true place to have breakfast, Dennys and had a good one. But that is not the eating we are talking about, more on that later.

We then shopped at Wal-Mart and Bed, Bath and Beyond and drove back to the park to put in laundry. One thing we have noticed since we got to California is the abundance of farmers markets and fruit stands along the highway. Today was no exception and we got some great local cherries and strawberries, enough strawberries to freeze some.

We got back to the park, unloaded, put in laundry and headed to the beach. We picked the KOA since it was so close to the ocean and within walking distance of a lot of good restaurants. We already have had some great clam chowder and a crab sandwich with fresh avocado that was real good. We have plans for the cioppino at Phils and the mexican at The Whole Enchilada, both within walking distance. We are driving to San Jose today and eating at one of our all time favorites, The Fish Market. On to the beach.

A short walking distance away is the harbor.



A seal swimming in the harbor.



A little further is Salinas River State Beach. Here is the trail to the ocean. The sand is so fine here our feet just sunk into it.



We walked along the beach. The sand was firmer here and easier to walk.




Of course there were shorebirds.




We walked along the beach some more.




On the way back we took this picture to show the KOA and how close it is to the harbor and the beach. 



We are so incredibly lucky to one week gaze upon the wonders of Yosemite and the next to walk along the beach.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo
