Environmental attorney semi-retired I have lived in Carmel Valley for 33 years. As a surfer kayacker and abalone diver I have explored the Monterey County coastline. I know all the secret surf spots south of San Francisco. As a fisherman I have fished for all the sport fish available in Monterey County. I have flyfished for trout in the major rivers and streams of the Ventana Wilderness. Once caught a 13 inch trout with my bare hands. Since I took up cycling 5 years ago, I have ridden almost all the trails on Fort Ord, and most of the rural roads in Big Sur and eastern Carmel Valley to Arroyo Seco.
