Care for a Walk?

Hey, Internet Librarians. You know what they say about all work and no play . . .

Before or after attending one of the Internet Librarian workshops today, take a breather, and head on out to Monterey’s bike path.

Just go to the wharf and turn left. Follow the odd icons on the path, which will lead you up to Cannery Row, the area that was the setting for the Steinbeck novel by the same name. (Actually it was the street that was named for the novel and not the other way around, but regardless of what you call it, this was the place that inspired the book.)

Rather live vicariously? Visit National Public Radio’s site to read, or alternatively hear, an interesting feature on one of the characters in Steinbeck’s novel, a man who actually lived in Cannery Row when it was a sardine lover’s Mecca. NPR: The Dream of Cannery Row

P.S. The views from this path are nothing short of breathtaking.
