CARMEL BY THE SEA (CA part 3)


Our time in Carmel was magical!  What a special town...so quaint...such charming architecture...lovely landscapes...and just steps away from the most beautiful sand beach.  Every morning we enjoyed a stroll into town for coffee and pastry, and then to the beach for a walk along the water.  For a week we lived a charmed Carmel life!!

         
An abundance of natural beauty infused us everyday.

How fortunate we were to have Reid and Hannah share some time with us here!!


We explored along the famous 7 mile drive, stopping to take pictures.  Here's Bryan in a cheesy photo-op with the Lone Cypress:
We rented a fantastic home with an enclosed courtyard.  Each night we were able to open a wall of glass to the garden, surrounding us with hints of pine, sea and flowers.  And sounds of the mourning dove.
Every night a gorgeous, perfect sunset to behold:
