Thursday was a beautiful day.  A perfect day to head to the beach with good friends.

Lovers Point is one of our favorite beach spots in Monterey.  There are two little coves.  We prefer the one further west, toward the rocks.  The one closest to the road has more sand and calmer water.  The one we go to has great tidepools at low tide.   There are more waves and you need to keep a closer eye on the kids, but there's a perfect vantage point to watch the surfers and kayakers and for spotting sea lions out in the water.  The kids love exploring between the rocks for hermit crabs and starfish.  Above the cove is a fantastic park for having picnics, there is a beach volleyball court, bathrooms, and you can take a walk along the coastal recreation trail back toward the Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row; which is exactly what we did on our last day trip to Lovers Point.

Thanks Barbara.  I love the beach, I cannot believe we actually had warm enough weather to go in the Spring.  The kids were thrilled.
