Carmel and Monterey
For the last couple of years Stephanie and I have gone down to Carmel-by-Sea and Monterey for a getaway day and a little Christmas shopping. We've had to reschedule a few times this year but finally got to go yesterday. It was a gorgeous day, sunny and warm.
We started in Carmel with a late breakfast / lunch at a little restaurant called The Cottage. Eating here is also becoming a tradition. We both had omelettes that were sooo good. I had fruit with mine and you would not believe all the berries - strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries - I was in heaven right there, I love all types of berries. I then dragged poor Stephanie into every shop on Ocean Street.
We went to Pacific Grove to check out Back Porch Fabrics then on to Monterey's Cannery Row. Yes, we played tourist the whole day. The picture above is the back of Cannery Row.
We headed for home after a little more shopping in Monterey with a stop for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. We must of been very tired, neither of us got any cheesecake.
