Toni, Erin and I just got back from a trip to Monterey. We stayed three nights in Monterey and a night on the way up and down at Apple Farm in San Luis Obispo. I love Monterey because of its beauty and the fact that I lived there twice. I have a particular fondness for the Monterey Cypress tree. I find it so beautiful.

The Lone Cypress on Monterey's 17 Mile Drive is a much photographed icon. It was my photographic goal to get a good picture of that famous tree. I usually give myself one photographic mission for each trip I take. So, I set up my tripod and took a bunch of shots of the Lone Cypress as dusk approached Pebble Beach.

We had a wonderful getaway on our trip. We were disappointed to find our favorite hamburger joint in Seaside, the Del Monte Express, was no longer in business. Oscar Hossenfellder's Edgewater Packing Company on Cannery Row was also closed. We missed their carousel and fresh caramel corn. Caramel Corn is a popular snack in Monterey. We made sure to get some at Old Fisherman's Wharf during our stay. Toni has to get some each time we go to Monterey.
