Carmel Monterey Itinerary--Please Critique

Jump to last reply

DH and I are going to Carmel/Monterey at the end of October for a getaway. We fly into Monterey on a Monday and fly back out on Friday. We have lodging in Carmel. (The name escapes me at the moment--the reservation is on DH's computer) We like to see museums and different shops but we are not big shoppers. We are fairly outdoorsy so hiking etc is fun for us. On the flip side, we get to do lots of hiking at home so if we only did one hike (or even none) that is fine. We do love wine and love tasting it but don't want to spend more than a day or even half day doing that. Here is what I have for a "first draft"
Monday: Get in around noonish, pick up car, check in at hotel. Walk around Carmel--window shopping etc

Tuesday: Carmel Mission, 17 mile drive, Monarch Grove Sanctuary, Light house. I am thinking that will take us a good morning to do all that. With the rest of the day, we could go to Chateau Julien for a tour or hike in the Point Lobos State Reserve

Wednesday: Monterey: Aquarium (2 hours), Walk around Cannery Row and Fishermans Warf (1 hour), As time allows: Monterey Museum of Art, Presidio, Wine tastings.

Thursday: Not sure. Could do: whale watch tour in Monterey Bay (are there any/many whales this time of year?); Kayak tour of Monterey Bay; Tour Carmel Valley wineries.

We eat minimal breakfast and will take lunch where we find it--not big lunch eaters. We do look forward to great dinners. We do not have access to great sea food in Salt Lake City so good seafood is a must for us. We also like the "farm to table/local cuisine" restaurants. We don't really like French food (I know we should be banned from being foodies :-) )Here are some I am considering:
Monday night--Flying Fish Grill
Tuesday night: Passion Fish
Wednesday: Montrio Bistro
Thursday: Fishwife or Monterey Fish house or something else not seafood

Ok, I think that's it. Critique away please--any and all ideas are appreciated. TIA!!
