This is a little spot on the coast of California.  Moss Landing has a population of approximately 800 people.....oh I love a small community.

We were here for three days.....foggy most of the time...but that does not bother us one bit.

One thing I love about gardner's is that they will put flowers in almost anything, and they will put anything in their gardens.  How about that cannon??

Lots of succulents.  Also there is a what appeared to be a little rental cottage painted in the most charming blue.

See the purple door.....gads....I love this.

More garden art above.

We at at this little restaurant called the "Haute Enchilada".

The food was fabulous and the interior of the spot was incredible...they had an antique bar and incredible art on the walls.

Had fresh strawberries and artichokes.  I haven't had an artichoke since I was a kid.  My mom actually made them often....she loved them too.  Strawberries and artichokes were so fresh.....picked right from the fields next door to where we were.

Sweet little house in Moss Landing.

Had dinner at "Phil's Fish Market" which has been on Throw 
down with Bobby Flay on the Food Network.  

Moss Landing is a working harbor and lots of fishing vessels and seals around the docks.

Then onto Monterey and Carmel.
Here is a sneak peak of our next spot.

Yep......Big Sur.........

Hopefully I'll be able to continue our little journey tomorrow.  

Till then.......stay well dear friends,
