Monterey is a favourite place to visit, but I always find it hard to get a place to stay on short notice. - Margy

Great photo of a great spot. My wife and I went to Monterrey for July 4th weekend a few years ago. Very close to your photo spot, at the end of one of the piers on Cannery Row, there was a wine tasting room that was a consortium of Monterrey County wineries. They even had a Taste of Monterrey wine club, which we belonged to for a while, that combined choices from multiple wineries.

The road from Monterrey down highway 1 through Big Sur is perhaps the most beautiful drive in the world.
