USA day 7 - Monterey Bay

27 Jun - We woke up early in the morning again to get our rented car for a drive down south to the Monterey Bay. Monterey Bay is a bay of the Pacific Ocean, along the central coast of California, located south of San Francisco and San Jose, between the cities of Santa Cruz and Monterey. After a few hours drive on the boring freeway, we finally reached our destination around noon.

Former Monterey Canning Company, which is a major processor throughout the Monterey sardine era. Today the warehouse of the Monterey Canning Company provides visitors with specialty shops, restaurants and eclectic gifts from Steinbeck's famous street.

Nice view of the bay

California, the bear state

Guess what is sun tanning on the beach?

It must be good to live by the beach and see these scenery everyday

Lone Cyprus, one of the attraction along the 17 scenic miles drive

Of course, we ended the day with a visit to the Livermore Premium Outlet, even though we only effectively have 2 hours to shop before they closed for the day. Who could resist branded fantastic deals at the outlet malls in the USA? =p
