My hubby and & I drove up to Monterey to spend four days in town to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary this year. We discovered that down the street from where we dined for breakfast was the Stevenson House.
Neither of us knew that Robert Louis Stevenson had lived in Monterey for three and a half months in 1879 until our recent visit! Unfortunately, the Stevenson House itself wasn't open the day we visited, but the gardens were open at the back of the building and they were in exquisite form. Spring has sprung and many beautiful flowers were in bloom. Birds were singing and chirping. Several benches were available to sit on and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. I'm so glad we stopped by as this historical landmark was a far cry more peaceful than the hustle and bustle of Cannery Row and The Monterey Bay Aquarium.
