Sonora - Monterey

sunny 19 °C

Biggest bit of news ..... New baby boy in the family - Cooper Nikau Rivers born 7lbs 6oz 17th May. Congratulations Ange and Des, and now Jackson is a big brother!

Well not much to recommend about Sonora. Nothing outstanding and nothing we haven't seen before so won't be recommending this spot. The countryside in getting here is lovely. Meadows with different colored heather, you could almost imagine living the Little House on the Praire life.
Drove through Jamestown and again, looked very similar to Jackson. So we've done inland, it's time to get back to the sea and coast again.
Monterey and finally the sea. It looks very wild and freezing cold, the temperature dropped 10 degrees due to a delta wind apparently. So out of shorts and back in jeans.
Took a walk along Cannery Row where they used to can the sardines from the harbor. There is a large deep canyon out in the harbor which is why there were so many sardines there.
Visited the shops on the way to dinner. Went in to the pet store to have a nosy. You can purchase a baby python snake for only $75.00 or a rose haired tarantula for only $17.99. When is your birthday Brittany? They even have a scorpion for sale as a pet, go figure. Check out the lizard shot smiler filmed, not quite sure what they were up to.
