Salinas International Airshow from my backyard at Las Palmas Ranch! This afternoon while my kids where napping(they soon woke up) the USAF Thuderbirds fired up their engines and fly over and around my house. The jet sound is intense--the dog was scared and the kids woke up..we all went out back and watched the show. This is an annual event from my backyard!  The show ends tomorrow..there is still time to purchase tickets...at www.salinasairshow.com         These planes were right over my head. This is the view from my bckyard and i t was thrilling.         If you have a chance to go...it will be worth it. P.S. take a look at the utube video here!

I took this photo last year while having lunch with my family on Cannery Row! It kept coming up on my screen saver and thought is was a nice idea to post here on Active Rain. This is a rare site for the Monterey Bay but ships do come in and sit so magnificently on the bay. You will always take a double take when you see one! Here is the article that appeared in the news: The World cruise ship brought 644 feet of luxury to the Monterey Bay on Sunday when it dropped its anchor. The vessel is the only private residential ship that travels the globe, and for local businesses The World is within their reach when it comes to tourism dollars.  "We plan on seeing some of these people real soon," said Anthony Lucido of Domenico's on the Wharf.  Passengers on The World are shuttled to and from t...

It must be that interest rates are so low and/or buyer confidence is back. But I have had so many buyers lately..more than ever in my career. There are some great deals to be had right now for people..The Monterey Peninsula is a great place to live and it always will be.
