Kate and I happened across a fantastic deal for staying at the retreat center, Asilomar, near Monterey at Pacific Grove. We stayed there three nites last week 2/21/13 and found it to be delightful. There are something like 200 acres including beachfront with many buildings designed by the famous architect Julia Morgan. We brought our bikes and road from our room to Cannery Row in Monterey. Saw the famous Monarch butterflys, sea lions and a gorgeous coastline. Fabulous trip all together. Here are the photos.
Quick rundown: Grew up in Lombard, Illinois, went to Arizona State University, worked as a CPA with Arthur Andersen & Co, then Laventhal and Horwath, then Rolling Stones, then Heron International, then Goodby Berlin and Silverstein in San Francisco. Moved to the foothills in 1990 and traded futures and designed websites. Married to Kate Stewart, now living in Colfax, CA. We have six grandchildren. I enjoy camping in our RV, hiking, kayaking, fishing, droning and cross country skiing Also conga drumming, photography and dogs.
