Monterey is nice

I spent the weekend in Monterey for my brother’s sailing regatta. Though I have been there a few times, I had never walked around with a camera until this weekend.  Though its main attraction is Cannery row, I am much more interested in the old-downtown area and Lighthouse Avenue, which is the main street that runs through the town.  Amongst the typical suburban fixtures (groceries, pharmacy, fast food) there are gems of old dilapidated houses, abandoned store fronts, TWO record shops (which are becoming harder to come by these days), and even a lithographic print studio (Cypress Lithographics).  This is one of the many houses that have been aged by the moist, salty air.  Just look at those succulents!
