Our main destination today and the reason for heading North to Salinas is the National Steinbeck Center, a modern and stylish interactive, educational center in downtown Salinas that is devoted to the life and works of John Steinbeck as well as the agriculture of the Salinas Valley. It was fascinating and quite fun, which I wasn't expecting. Now I'm not a reader of Mr. Steinbeck's works, though I have read a few of his books by requirement in school, but my Fiance is a big fan and avid reader of his books.
Our room overlooks the pool which is nice but mostly we are interested in heading into Monterey to the Whole Foods store where I plan on purchasing the Steinbeck sandwich from the deli. Let me just say that this sandwich is my sole reason for wanting to go on this weekend getaway!!! It is sooooo delicious and since we don't have a Whole Foods in San Luis County it's a total treat!! Obviously it's called the Steinbeck due to the areas history so I have no idea if this sandwich exists at any other Whole Foods but if it does it's a Chicken Tarragon salad with avocado, mixed greens and tomato on a whole wheat croissant- simply divine!!!
