Tuesday September 19, 2017. Today, we leave Yosemite National Park and head to Monterey Bay where we will stay for one night.
|Monterey Bay - Sunset|
|San Luis Reservoir|
|San Luis Reservoir in 2016 (notice how low the water level was)|
It is free to visit, and although there wasn't anyone there to help us, there are plenty of self-guided exhibits that you can read/watch to learn about the reservoir. Best of all, there are clean toilets here!
Gilroy Premium Outlets was next and unfortunately, we didn't find anything here. I guess since it was during the week mid-day, it explained why it was so quiet here. Have a look at the shops to see if you want to stop here for a visit. McDonald's was for lunch. Nothing special.
We made it to the Monterey Visitor Center for information and the ladies that were there were really helpful. Unfortunately they did tell us that they might be closing due to cost, which is unfortunate since they were really helpful and kind. As a bonus, for filling out a survey, we got a set of free nice postcards!
|Monterey Bay Street Market|
|Domenico's - Anchovies|

Tomorrow, we spend the day in the area with the goal to be in San Francisco for the evening which is our last stop for this trip.
