My wife and I trevel to Monterey a couple times a year. We really love it here, and think of retiring here. Someday. Usually when we come here and walk along the walking path from downtown to cannery row we will see lots and lots of marine mammels of various types. today we didnt see so many animals. We actually had to look for them. I mean really look! I did find a few laying around the rocks, staying out of reach of sharks.
