Carmel is beautiful!
If you have never been there, you need to pack up and go!
We had such a nice day, even though we
didn't run into Clint Eastwood.
We stayed in this very lovely hotel.
They serve a continental breakfast,
with the best french toast I have ever had in my life.
I hate to admit that we didn't buy anything in Carmel.
The shops were a tad out of our price range. (Darn it!)
But we did enjoy window shopping.
I love the cozy little spots in this town.
We took a short trip to Monterey.
I wanted to see Cannery Row.
The only picture I took was of these seals at Fisherman's Wharf.
I am seeing ten now, but I think there were a lot more than that.
Tricky little guys.
We drove around Pebble Beach.
It is a 17 mile drive.
I don't know why, but I didn't take a single picture.
That night we stayed in San Simeon.
The town is made up of many hotels and a few convenience stores.
Oops, I forgot the Denny's where we ate dinner
with all the other tourists in town.
I believe we all had Hearst Castle tours scheduled
for the following morning.
I love to tour mansions and imagine
what my life would be like as an heiress.
The view is amazing.
On our way south we stopped in two beautiful cities:
San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara.
I really wanted to see Santa Barbara
because it is the home of one of my favorite fictional characters-
We're on our way to Rob's favorite place on Earth. . .
For years we have wanted to stay at Disney's California Adventure.
We had a beautiful view of Downtown Disney.
It was a wonderful trip!
Thank you for joining me as I reminisced over this past week.
I would recommend sharing an enjoyable experience.
It's therapeutic when you have the winter doldrums.
