Have you all been glued to the television watching the Winter Olympics?
We have here, though the boys don't appreciate ice dancing or any ice skating. I'm amazed at all the sports on skis and boards now. So fun to watch and I hold my breath on some of these crazy tricks!
We are on school February break and enjoying no schedule.
We took a day trip to Carmel on Sunday and it was lovely.
Lunch at my favorite spot, Casanova for lunch.
Soup is brought to the table in a copper pot and ladled out into your bowl.
The homemade bread and in house butter were amazing!!!
I love the ambiance.
It looks small, but goes far back in a maze of winding spots and funky terraces and rooms.
A few snaps from our meanderings.
I can never take enough photos of Carmel.
My Jackson is slowly making me shorter and shorter.
Charming eateries to enjoy the people watching....
This town attracts a very eclectic group.
Funky homes with zillion dollar views...
The fences are my favorites.
So many unique ones with anything and everything growing on them.
Sorry all these are with the IPhone. My camera is being repaired. :(
The damp fog combined with sun makes everything grow beautifully.
It's a gardener's paradise.
The beaches are pretty amazing too.
This is Carmel River Beach. It is my favorite with it's expansive mountain and sea views.
When I'm here I really believe this is one of the best spots in the whole world.
I feel lucky to be close to all this.
The walk above this beach is fun and you will see some of the best homes in Carmel.
It winds itself along to the Mission, which is one of the loveliest in the California Mission chain, and also Mr Eastwood's Mission Ranch Inn, where you can stop for a cocktail and watch the sheep graze along the meadows. . .
My kids are enjoying some sleeping in and we are made trips here and there to get shoes that need be bought and rackets restrung and replacing pants that have gotten too short!
This week we are going to The Ritz-Carlton in Half Moon Bay. I have never stayed overnight and am so excited to share more about this pretty spot with you all..
Curious to know how many of you are on holiday right now?
Any adventures or just enjoying each day?
Have a great week everyone!!
