We were worried that Flat Stanley might become a snack for this seagull, but he was not afraid to take a picture with him.
This is a monument on Cannery Row, a very famous road in Monterey.
This is John Steinbeck. He is a famous author. You probably don’t know who he is, but when you are in High School you will read some of his books. He lived in this area and wrote about it too.
Flat Stanley was hungry and wanted to eat some shrimp. This one was way too big! (Also pictured: Taiten)
After the shrimp, Flat Stanley dove into this pile of candy. Yummy dessert!
Flat Stanley loved the Thomas Kinkade gallery. Thomas Kinkade painted a lot of very beautiful paintings.
