West Coast Road Trip | Day Two: Meeting The Lighthouse

On second day of our road trip and after waking up from sleeping inside the car, we looked for a place to eat. We headed to “Water+Leaves” as Fisherman`s wharf in Monterey. We were about to arrive at San Francisco for today.

I have always loved fisherman`s wharfs and piers in coastal cities. So for breakfast, we decided to visit “Old Fisherman`s Wharf” in Monterey. Nice and lovely place to be and having coffee and cookie with peace of mind (after a cold night sleeping in car we definitely deserve it!)

We were about to spend night in San Francisco, but this is high season and everywhere is too expensive! Even for a campground you have to pay a high price. So we decided to stay at Motel 6 in Fremont, and then move to San Francisco the other day. Along the way, we had a quick walk in Santa Cruz, have a visit at Pigeon Point Lighthouse, and picked some strawberries in an organic farm.

The Pebble Beach Golf Course in Monterey is highly recommended. There is an entry fee, but it is really worth it.
