More Photos (III) of the Monterey Peninsula, California, U.S.A. (August 16-20, 2008)

Visitors enjoy the sunny weather at Carmel Town Beach; the famous Pebble Beach Golf Links overlooks the northern end of the beach
Carmel-by-the-Sea is known for its art galleries, high-end boutiques, fine restaurants and quaint storybook cottages like the one pictured here
Carmel River State Beach is a quieter alternative to nearby Carmel Town Beach
Father Junipero Serra founded the Mission San Carlos Borremeo del Rio Carmelo in Monterey in 1770; it was the second of California's 21 missions. It was moved to its present location in Carmel in 1771, and Father Serra is buried within the mission grounds.
