Description

Several years ago I had the opportunity to spend a long weekend wandering the coast from near Santa Cruz down to Monterey, California. That gorgeous coastline has stayed with me in my dreams every since. When the weekend drew to a close, I found myself staying quite near Old Fisherman’s Wharf in the heart of Monterey. And I couldn’t have imagined a nicer place to conclude my stay in California. The sea air and the colorful atmosphere of Fisherman’s Wharf was picture postcard perfect.

A friend and I took a whale watching boat tour that left from old fisherman’s wharf – out main reason for heading down there in fact. But after we got there, I saw the wharf was a destination unto itself Old Fisherman’s Wharf was built in the 1870s as a commercial wharf principally for the sardine fishing industry. That use tapered off after World War II and the focus of the historic wharf turned to tourism.

I have a suspicion that the second act of Old Fisherman’s Wharf in Monterey is far more colorful than the first act, and I wholeheartedly approve! The sight of the pier when our boat returned really caught my attention and this Monterey artwork is based off photos from that afternoon. I loved the weathered pilings of the old pier and the colorful buildings above the sea green waters. And just look at all the balloons! What a beautiful sight to welcome us on our return to the docks! There was definitely a vivid and fun carnival atmosphere on that sunny afternoon.

I would love to hear what attracted you to this particular print? Did it remind you of your own visit to Monterey? Maybe you grew up enjoying the sights and sounds on Old Fisherman’s Wharf? Or does it simply appeal to your light-natured side because of all the cheerful colors? I hope you’ll take a second to share your thoughts!
