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.
