I am so lucky to live between San Francisco and San Jose. That also means that Monterey and Carmel are also very close by. I always forget that the real name for Carmel is Carmel-by-the-Sea. At the end of Ocean Ave, Carmel’s main drag, is the beautiful Carmel Beach. This is one of the most beautiful stretches of white sand anywhere. It is also dog friendly. The Pebble Beach Golf Course is to the north and Point Lobos is to the south.

I love showing these towns off to visitors. It is so pleasant to stroll up and down Ocean Avenue. This is exactly what Pascale and I did last Friday.

Up the road a way is Monterey and the 17 mile drive. If you haven’t visited this area, please plan a trip.  DSC07886Pacific GroveDSC07889Babies on the beach at Pacific GroveDSC0789217 Mile driveDSC0789617 Mile Drive with fog
