It was difficult crawling out from under a million blankets and being blasted with a space heater on Saturday morning, but it was Neil’s birthday! Lattes and pastries were consumed, the rain finally stopped, and we headed out to a nearby trail. After our hike, we drove up the coast to Carmel for lunch.
Carmel is a charming little town and we enjoyed hypothesizing on what the people there do. I imagine you make all of your money first and then move to Carmel. We had the most delicious seafood lunch at Flaherty’s and then walked down to the water. Our plan was to drive back down for drinks and the sunset at Nepenthe, but as you can see, the sun wanted to set during our drive. We still had a couple drinks at Nepenthe before going back to the Yurt and having dinner at the Big Sur Bakery. Such a wonderful day. I think Neil was pretty happy with how it turned out.
