Carmel By the Sea (Mystery Trip #1)~ Part One

The guessing about where we were going had gone from the South to the North. I think the morning we left Sam actually thought we were going to drive to Leavenworth, WA. I took a round about way to the airport and the fact that we were talking about who knows what…that I actually passed the airport exit. I have never done that…..ever!!!

When he saw the boarding pass…well he guessed it from there.

We flew into San Jose and then began our 70 mile drive to Carmel…we were starving so we already had our breakfast place picked out. The Cottage was our choice  and we were not disappointed!!


It was a little chilly….so we picked a table by the fire.



This was my view…it reminded me of a little cafe in Italy…like I would know??



I ordered hot chocolate and this is what came out. How can one improve on this drink? Well, all I can say is that it was the best Hot Chocolate I have ever had!

A very hearty omelet indeed, plus we shared amazingly wonderful pancakes.

With very full stomachs and sleepy heads, we went shopping at the most darling stores you have ever laid eyes on. Of course this children’s clothing store caught my eye. Cause y’all know I am going to be a grandma THIS SUMMER!!!!





The style of the shops, homes and hotels were absolutely divine. I could have taken photos all day.




I want this for my side yard, its so dreamy!! They had tons of these cute little ally walk ways, they were so adorable!




Sooooo pretty!

This area had several different levels with shops and eateries. 


We only had two days in Carmel, CA and that included flying there and back. We crammed a ton into this short time. After dinner we went back to this little shop area and we noticed that there were no street lights…..kind of odd. So we drove into a residential neighborhood and there were none there either…..strange for sure.

This town is a must see if you have never been!!
