Hello from Carmel by the Sea


This is the view from where I am blogging ...not bad! We are having a great time. Our host/hostess have been wonderful and so generous with their home and their time.
Yesterday, we went for a morning walk in a State preserve between Carmel and Carmel Highlands. I have never in my life seen such beautiful views.
Then off to lunch at The Lodge at Pebble Beach. MBM was for the first time in his life speechless. Just in total awe. This was the view from our table! MBM took these pictures with his phone. I have better pics but forgot the cord to down load them to the computer.
We went into Monterrey for a bit in the afternoon and dinner in Carmel.

This morning we drove down to Big Sur had lunch and then drove the marathon course up the Pacific Coast Highway. YIKES!!! MBM is a bit freaked out by the hills. Then to make matters worse he picked up his running bib and is seeded 27...no pressure. I am trying to convince him the bib numbers are random.
Tomorrow is race day, so MBM and I have offered to make dinner so MBM can get to bed early. He needs to get the transport bus down to Big Sur around 5:00am. UGH!!!!

I love this area of the country. My grandfather lived around that area for the last 25 years or so of his life. before that he was in San Francisco. Enjoy your time.

This is by far one of my faavorite trips - love Carmel by the Sea and the Lodge at Pebble Beach. It's been way too long though - need to go back!
Enjoy :)

Oh, Carmel is absolutely heaven on earth, or at least how I think it will be. I love the ocean and the golf views! Just beautiful, I hope you had a lovely time.
