Pacific Grove, CA. Pacific Grove was founded in 1875 by a group of Methodists who modeled the town after Ocean Grove, New Jersey. In time, the butterflies, fragrant pines and fresh sea air brought others to the Pacific Grove Retreat to rest and meditate.
We visited this lovely spot and as the four of us were on this bluff hunting a geocache, a storm blew in that had the local police closing the beach as we struggled to get back to the car in the wind and driving rain. It was shocking how fast and fierce the storm blew in and chased us away. No cache...have to get it next time!! Pacific Grove, California
