California Getaway: Carmel and Spanish Bay

A couple of mornings we took walks along the beach.  If I could have weather like we had and views like we had I would work out three times each day!  Well, maybe I wouldn't.  But, I like to think that I would!

The golf course on one side of the path....
and the ocean on the other!

Of course we couldn't go a whole three hours without stuffing our faces with some yummy food, so after our morning walk we headed to brunch in Carmel.  We found these beautiful flowers while strolling around after town and the hubbies thought we should get a picture in front of them!  You don't have to look far to see beautiful, vibrant colored flowers in Carmel, unlike home this time of the year!
One thing that must be on your list of things to do while in the area is visit Spanish Bay in the evening to hear the bagpipes.  There are fire pits all around so you can enjoy the view of the ocean, the golf course and of course, the infamous Bagpiper.  
The view.
Good company.
The Bagpiper.
We had such a fun trip.  We missed Cilla like crazy, but it was nice to be away for a few days and get to be in adult mode without life revolving around the schedule of a two year old.
