Salad Bowl of the US

We are now at the Betabel RV Park just outside San Juan Bautista on Hwy 101 which is about 30 miles north of Salinas which is NW of Monterey. Salinas is known as the Salad Bowl of the US, we have never seen so many fields of lettuce, strawberries, and plants we haven't ID'd and on our drive here there were fields and fields of orchards, nuts we believe and some olives.
Today we decided to take in the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium, expensive at $30 for me and $24 for seniors but we enjoyed it especially the jellyfish and seahorses.
After finding a penny smasher in one of the shops on Cannery Row we took a drive along Ocean View Blvd to find the Point Pinos Lighthouse.
What a wonderful drive and all long the ocean side a bike trail and of course the other side beautiful homes. We will be taking that drive again. The lighthouse is surrounded by golf courses.
I think we will be having a really good time exploring this area, so visit again to see what we find.
