Monterey - 17 Mile Drive

We arrived back at Fisherman's Wharf the following morning to hear that the day's whale watching trips had in fact been cancelled due to rough seas. We were very disappointed but booked to go on the following morning's trip, weather permitting. So what to do? We decided to spend the morining doing the 17 Mile Drive. Entry is $9.25 onto a private estate that has some lovely houses, gold courses and a fantastic sandy and rocky shore line. Birdwise it was a cracking morning, followed by the afternoon round the pool.
