If you ever find yourself on this side of California you should definitely check out Carmel. It’s a quaint town north of Big Sur, just before Monterey. It’s known for having had Clint Eastwood as mayor, in addition to lots of art galleries, restaurants and bed and breakfasts.
The first time I visited Carmel and saw some of the B&Bs downtown I thought they had been taken straight out of a Hans Christian Andersen book. We stayed at the Tickle Pink Inn and you can’t ask for more. The view was magnificent, the room had a great hot tub, and since they knew we were ending our honeymoon there, they welcomed us with some champagne, score!
If you ever go to Carmel, make sure you have reservations for dinner, especially on weekends, and don’t forget to take a walk to the beach. Besides the beautiful sunset, you may see some dolphins putting on a show.
Have you been to Carmel or Monterey?
PS – Sorry I can’t post more of my own pictures but I lost several folders with photos when my old computer crashed.
