Carmel, CA

No trip home is ever complete without a drive down Highway 1 to Carmel.
This classy coastal city is truly one of California's timeless treasures and everytime I visit it's hard not imagine myself living there.
For those of you that know this area I'm sure you can understand what I mean.

{ One of Monterey's famous crop. }

{ Steinbeck Country }

{ A beautiful beach on the 17 Mile Drive. }

{ Pebble Beach Golf Course }

{ The incredible Lone Cypress Tree. }

To be continued with Carmel soon...
