As it is the Coast Guard Jetty not really that picturesque considering all of the sights in the Monterey, Pacific Grove, Carmel and Big Sur area. It has some personal import. In WWII the USS Greenling (SS-213)-a Gato Class Diesel/Battery Submarine docked on the pier to the left. My father the Yeoman and no doubt others with shore liberty ventured out to the USO Dance on Del Monte Beach and met the Monterey High Sinatra Club President-my mother. Photo Credit Julie Hymer.
