Monterey Bay has two wharfs.  Old Fisherman’s Wharf is where there are lots of gift shops and restaurants.  Monterey Municipal Wharf is where all the fisherman and wholesale fish companies are.  Being that we were already closer to the Municipal Wharf we decided to check it out before we had dinner.
