A quick study from a photo I took some time ago. Depending on where you are in California, the beaches can be flat and wide, beneath sandy cliffs, or covered with rocks. Wherever you go, you have legal access to the coast – no private beaches!
Monterey Pines are some truly elegant trees. If you have never seen one, but you like trees, you will enjoy these. They have a totally non-pine-tree shape, and grow in odd directions, often pushed by the wind you experience on the Monterey Peninsula. These are trees I photographed along our walk while visiting Monterey and Pacific Grove last week.
