We toured Monterey's Fisherman's Wharf. It was such a foreign place to a Wyoming girl that I could hardly take it all in. I know I snapped photos of trawlers, whalers, fishing boats, sail boats, yachts, dinghy boats and even tugs but after I put them on my computer, I forgot which ones were which.. Here are a few.
I think this is a fishing boat.
A small whale watching boat
I have seen pictures like this before but it is so cliche that I had to snap it.
Docked sail boats
Here are a whale watching boat and a sail boat but I took the photo because I loved the seals perching on all the buoys.
These big guys were sunning themselves on the deck of a restaurant next to the seal watching area.

You usually see weather vanes atop cupolas that sport roosters, horses or eagles where I come from, but this one was so appropriate for the area. I love weather vanes and need one at my house.

Fishing is a very dangerous profession and the fisherman have to be strong mentally and physically to survive. Job Description for a Professional Fisherman | eHow.com

The seals like to come here to eat the many species of fish that hide in the kelp
I took this in a pull off area by the bay. It was the perfect time off evening to shoot, the waves were crashing and the sun was shining on the rocks. It is a beautiful picture if I say so myself.
