17 Mile Drive

The Monterey area is known for its "17 Mile drive", a stretch of road the circles the peninsula with stunning views, expensive houses, and loud marine wildlife.

Aloe?

I've never seen aloe like this before. Who invented this nonsense?

The pacific ocean

The first "proper" pacific ocean view, with crashing waves.

Start a walk, if you don't want to drive

Park the car, get walking. Love it, but we didn't because we wanted to see all 17 miles.

The chibibibis admiring the view

They had never seen the Pacific like this before!

The beach is nice

Not the biggest fan of the barrel distortion, but I figured I'd leave this shot in because why not.

Wark

Because two seagulls on a rock is always nice.

Cormorants abound

There are lots of them. Seeing just one was actually unusual.

Tsunamis are a word now

Because flood wave wasn't cool (notice how "flood" skillfully bypasses the "tidal" in tidal wave? Yeah. No, let's use a Japanese word)

Rocky beach panorama

After the initial sand beaches, we hit some rocky beaches, and they are beautiful.

More warks!

It is not advised to clamber up to where they are =)

The crashing ocean

I really wish my panorama stitcher was better at creating a uniformly lit sky. If I ever find a better piece of software, I might have to redo this panorama.

A risky flight

I know cormorants can swim really well, but this still looks pretty gutsy.

Welcome to Pebble Beach

Golf courses. So. Many. Golf. Courses.

Suddenly, squirrels. Like, LOTS of squirrels...

Food?

Lots of squirrels. All of them very used to humans.
