Home Sweet Home

We have returned from our trip to Carmel! I love being away but, I love going home, too!

MBM and I in Big Sur. We ate lunch in this beautiful spot at Nepenthe...breathtaking views and excellent burgers, too!

That is MBM in the orange shorts. Bad picture, I know! I am asking for a new camera for Mother's Day! Anyway, this was at mile 23...3 more miles to go...he looked great! I was enjoying a mimosa when he went by....probably explains the bad picture! Oh, I forgot to mention he finished in under 4 hours, 3:50 something! Not his best time but her was more interested in taking in the scenery and the the hills where a killer!

The day after the marathon we went for breakfast and massages at the Quail Lodge. MBM needed it, his legs were so tight. I just needed it! Then we just fluttered around Carmel By The Sea...I popped in and out of shops. I picked up a few things for the girls at Pink Wasabi.

We had dinner at the Mission Ranch. So fun with a piano bar and anyone could get up and sing. Pretty sure I heard the worst rendition of Kid Rock and Cheryl Crow's "Picture" sung by a couple well into their sixties!

I took this picture last night at sunset. Their house tradition is to toast the sunset and ring a bell! CHEERS!!!! So if you are considering heading out west....GO!!!!! I LOVE being from the Northeast but, I would consider taking our show on the road for a sunset like this every night!

Sounds like you had a great trip! Cute picture of you and MBM! That sunset is reminding me how badly I need a vacation.

Looks like you had a great trip! It's pretty hard not to have a great time in Carmel, so gorgeous!

Looks like a fun time! Glad you both enjoyed yourselves and made it back home safely!

beautiful sunset. That is one thing we missed on our trip - the sunsets were on the opposite side of the Tiki Bar. Would you ever place the Tiki Bar on the opposite side of the sunsets? Makes no sense to me. Looks like a great trip!
