Scenes from Carmel Valley and Carmel

On our recent visit to Carmel, we went on a hike in Garland Ranch in Carmel Valley. After that, we enjoyed a leisurely lunch at the Corkscrew Cafe. The cafe is located next to the Georis Winery tasting room and gift shop. The gift shop has a very eclectic selection of merchandise, including the Complete Petrosexual book. I can buy this used for a penny on Amazon, but B.E. won't allow it because he thinks it might give me ideas.

As usual, we stayed at the ever-so-pet-friendly Cypress Inn in Carmel. Here are four whippets lounging in their library. I believe their names are Archer, Buddy, Adam, and Sydney. I don't know which one is which.

Scenes from Cannery Row

We made a trip to Carmel-by-the-Sea this past weekend -- it's one of my favorite places on the planet. We first stopped off in Monterey and took a walk along the Fisherman's Wharf/Cannery Row walking/biking path and also had a nice lunch at the Trailside Cafe and Coffee House. The weather was just perfect and he water was just blue, blue, blue. The above photos were taken at various spots on the waterfront.
