After we spent several days in San Francisco, we drove south a few hours to a quaint little town called Carmel-By-The-Sea, which is right next to Pebble Beach.

This town is so incredibly chock-full of houses and shops that look like they are right out of a storybook! I just LOVED every minute that we spent there!

I took tons of pictures of the houses (hubs was quite weary of my picture-taking!), so if you’re a house-buff like I am, you’ll appreciate them.

We stayed at a bed & breakfast for four nights called the Sea View Inn, which was just a block or so from the beach. We really enjoyed our stay there! We usually try to stay at a bed and breakfast for a few nights when we’re on vacation and, every time, we are inspired to someday run one of our own!

It’s so interesting to meet people from all over the US and world, to chat with them over breakfast, and compare travel stories. We met people from Scotland, Australia, Texas, and California.

To redeem ourselves from eating at Safeway in San Francisco, I must say that we ate very well in this little town! Almost every corner has a fine dining restaurant and the food was so good! No fast food is allowed in this town!

A beautiful sunset over the Carmel beach…

If you are ever in this area, you should definitely check out this town!
