After checking out the Cathedral of San Carlos, we walked two more blocks to Monterey Harbor and Old Fisherman’s Wharf.
Driving out of the Muir Woods parking lot, we saw a sign on the road that said Beach, so we decided to head in that direction to check it out. Muir Beach was only about a 10 minute drive and very worth stopping by if you’re planning on visiting Muir Woods in the morning.
There were many colorful houses on the hillside and I could only imagine how wonderful it must be to wake up every morning to that beautiful ocean view.
After a few days in Roseville, CA we drove to Point Richmond. As soon as we dropped off our luggage at the Hotel Mac, we immediately asked the locals where the nearest beach access was. They all recommended Keller Beach.
It was already later in the afternoon and slightly foggy, but the atmosphere was perfect and very “Northern California” to us Los Angeles folks. It was a little gloomy, with bits of sun shining down through the clouds, breezy salty air, and cold cold.. did I mention.. very cold water. There were families there picnicking (I had no idea how they could have a party when it was so cold), and a few people just walking along the sand like we were.
