Carmel by the Sea , Vacation

Carmel by the Sea, they say that when you visit you need to close your pocket book and open your soul. And they are right! It really is a truly beautiful place and these photos are only a small sampling of all the wonderful photos we took during our trip.
While are friends in the Pacific Northwest dealt with record heat waves, we enjoyed cool foggy days on the ocean. Our evenings consisted of afternoons by the fireplace and outdoor dinning under gas heaters!
Coastal side of Carmel, along the seventeen mile drive. Home of beautiful homes and Pebble Beach Golf Course.

Carmel Mission
Beautiful inside and out with the gardens, chapel and museum. Could have stayed here all day! Having grown up in California and studied the history of the California missions I try to expose my daughter to a mission on each visit.
This is her second ( Mission in Sonoma and Carmel , not bad !)

Dinner out for the girls!

Story book cottages of Carmel! Yes, very small and VERY EXPENSIVE!!!
