An old neighborhood next to Cannery Row in Monterey California.

“It has always seemed strange to me,” said Doc. “The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism, and self-interest are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.” ~ John Steinbeck (Cannery Row)

“Golden Coastal Sunset” Photography Print by Lorrie Morrison

Along the rocky shorelines of the central coast of California are spectacular twilights and sunset scenes. Cypress trees line the coastal shores while the sun sets behind the horizon. There is a brief time when the sun is almost down and darkness sets in. This is a time when colors reflect and float along the water and through the trees.

This is a small section of the coastline along Cannery Row in Monterey, California. This is the area that was made popular by the famous writer John Steinbeck. You may know some of his books called “The Grapes of Wrath” and “Cannery Row”. This area is where captains of ships would stop on their way to San Francisco, one of the many areas where a mission was placed by Father Serra. Many people from other countries laboriously worked in the canneries and sardine  factories along the Cannery Row.

 

It was full of colorful characters in those days… and still is for that matter! The canneries are still there standing empty. Most were made into restaurants or hotels where many tourists are attracted to eat and stay. Farther down the road is Fisherman’s Wharf where all the fish were caught and brought in for the canneries. But those were days long ago.
