Last week I was reading Barbara Jacksier's blog and she said she was getting on a plane from New York to San Francisco to go to Carmel for a photo shoot for her book. My thoughts then turned to Carmel...I love Carmel. I couldn't get it out of my mind. I only live an hour away from Carmel and I hadn't been there for a few years. So, Saturday my daughter and I drove to Carmel. We packed a picnic lunch and ate on the beach, walked around town, drove around to take pictures of some cute cottages and then went on the "17 Mile Drive". We even took our dog Beau because Carmel is a very dog friendly town. A lot of the shop owners put bowls of water outside their doors for the dogs. We had a great day and I took a lot of pictures to share with you.
There are a lot of cottages with beautiful wavy roofs like the one below.
It was a really overcast day so the pictures aren't very clear. It was about 68 degrees.
Isn't this full size bronze park bench with an elderly couple cute? Look at her purse sitting next to her.
These white and green hydrangeas were so beautiful. I would have got a closer picture but we were in the car driving by.
If there are hydrangeas in the yard I have to get a picture....
The yard in the picture below was so beautiful.
At the end of the "17 Mile Drive" you come to the Pebble Beach Golf Course.
I think this was a tea room.
There are so many beautiful places in Northern California. I'm going to try to get out more and enjoy them.
Here's Beau on the beach.
