Castle on a Cloud

One place that we always go to while we are in Monterey is Big Sur. The views are spectacular, the restaurants are delicious, and the company is great. One of our favorites is called Ventana. There is this gorgeous terrace, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. You feel so high up that it is almost like you’re on a cloud. And the food is wonderful, too!

And the Fog Rolls In

Yesterday was so foggy here on the Monterey peninsula, that we decided to go down to Carmel-by-the-Sea (yes, that is its real name) for the day. There are some great shops and one particular restaurant that we always visit while we are here. Another tradition is to go down to Spanish Bay to a certain hotel and drink hot chocolate on the terrace. This hotel is special to us because my parents had their wedding reception there and, at sunset, a bagpiper comes and walks around the golf course and plays for all the people. And I cannot even tell you how gorgeous this golf course is. It is on Pebble Beach right off the terrace, and a few major golf tournaments are played there. Anyways, it was so much fun and just another little something we do every time we come to the coast.
