Monterey Fisherman's Wharf

A smaller version of San Francisco's Pier 39, Monterey Fisherman's Wharf attracts a lot of tourists to its shops and restaurants. Everything is packed into one pier.

Although, there is another pier close by: Municipal Wharf II, where locals gather to drop their lines along the Fishing Promenade.

We strolled along the main commercial pier, peering into the shops, touching collectibles, buying t-shirts, and reminiscing how things hadn't changed much since the last time we were there. The sights and sounds were the same; the smell of the ocean permeated the air.

I meandered around shooting pictures of anything interesting that caught my eye. Here are a few:

Extra-Added Attraction

Oh, and always on the lookout for wildlife wherever I go, I did see a seagull sitting on a rock, contemplating what he was going to do next ... maybe fly to Salt Lake City for the weekend? Who knows?
