Drive to Monterey
We made our way today to Monterey. It was a good drive. Chas wanted to stop and see some big trees so we headed for Henry Cowell state park. Just before we stopped to get some sandwiches to take in. It’s really noticeable that prices have rocketed - from a local supermarket we bought two basic sandwiches and a salad tray plus some orange juice and it came to $28.

We walked round a couple of trails and saw squirrels and deer. The Freemont tree you can walk inside - hollowed out by fire that was once used as a resort honeymoon room.
The tallest tree is nearly 300 feet and 1500 years old.
I think this was one of my favourite things so far. It was so tranquil there and the trees so old and beautiful.

We then drove on to Monterey- we were staying In pacific grove. It was quite late by the time we arrived so we grabbed a pizza from 7-11 and ate it in our room.
