Photographer's Note

Ocean View Boulevard, Monterey

This photo was taken from the northern tip of Monterey Bay, near the Pacific Grove Golf Links. I thought the rocky shorline was beautiful.

Some interesting facts about the city:
-Population ~ 31,000
-Many California "firsts" occurred here, including California's first theater, brick house, publicly funded school, public building, public library, and printing press, as well as California's first draft of their constitution.
-Was an abundant fishery until it was overfished in the 1950s
-Author John Stienbeck made his home here
-Famed for its abundant sea habitat, including kelp seaweed forests, sea otters and sea lions
