Carmel to Anaheim Day 7, 8, & 9

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.
How many seals do you see?
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-
Kinsey Millhone.

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.
So exciting!

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.
