Hello,my bucket list friends! On Saturday I went on a day trip to Monterey. My mom and I started our day by getting a tour of the Monterey state historic park. The tour started at the custom house that is located right next to old fishermen’s wharf. My mom and I were the the only people who showed up for the tour so it ended up being a private tour. The tour was very informative about the history of Monterey. My favorite part of the tour was the beautiful gardens we got to vist. One of gardens had Koi fish. I loved watching them swim around. The tour ended at the Pacific house. The thing I loved about this place the most was that it had a free museum. There were several interesting exhibits to see here. There is also a gift shop. I got some souvenires here. There is also a gift shop at the custom house. After exploring the museum we went back down to the wharf. There were a bunch of sea lions hanging out near the wharf. I got some really good pictures of them. I have visited the wharf before and I have a favorite gift shop and a favorite candy store there. I went to both. I got some great souvenires at the gift shop including a new snow globe for my collection! At the candy store I got a bunch of taffy! I love getting taffy at this candy store. The have barrels full of it and there are so many flavors to choose from. After shopping we walked a little bit on a path near the wharf. We did walk very far because we were in a two hour parking spot and we needed to move. After our adventures at the wharf we went to meet my dad for lunch. We went to a restaurant called Tarpy’s Roadhouse. The food was great and so was the location. There was a pond here that had lots of turtles in it. I had a great day in Monterey!
