17 Mile Drive - The Lone Cypress🌲 Iconic view of the lone cypress. I never get tired of this view despite seeing it a thousand times.

Some great coastal vistas.
#waterlust Another great sunset location people crowd around at sunset
vinramundo.smugmug.com The path leads to the beach of Carmel. This coastal village is quite charming and lots of visitors and locals visit this spot to walk by the beach, or hike it's surrounds. Houses near the beach each have their own character , so I did a perimeter hike around the area and it lead me to this Vista. #blue #beachbound #aquatrove The most impressive tree (and there are several!) along the trail. Point Lobos has something wonderful to show me every time I visit. Love it here! Lone Cypress on the 17 Mile Drive #californiadreamin #carmel #california #travel #wanderlust Sunset in Carmel.

#beach #californiacoastline Allen Grove. ❤️🙌 #California One of the best State Parks in California, wonderful views and trails , don't bother to pay to go in , park outside on the road and walk to go in for free! This is one of 21 of Spanish Catholic churches and was the second mission established by Father Serra and was headquarters of the missions. Lovely courtyard as well and is the only mission with the original bell tower dome. Note the original mission was in Monterey (which is not counted in the list of 21 missions but you can still see the church in Monterey) but later moved to Carmel. Follow the mission bells on El Camino Real trail to see all the missions. #WeekendGetaway #Colorful #Architecture. #roadtrip #Green #StunningStructures #InStone #beach

#waterlust #BestOf5 #EndlessSummer #BeachBound A typical little side alley in downtown Carmel. Point lobos colors
#BeachBound Driving down south from San Francisco... I've never seen fog roll off the sea and meet land like I did here. The ocean was wild, loud, and so much different than my familiar Atlantic. #westcoast Incredible beach... I got the chance to be here at sun set!! The view from Carmel beach in California. Perfect costal day trip stop. The best place to hike The upper beach on the north end of Carmel Beach is rarely crowded. It is a perfect spot to set up camp for the day, dig holes, build castles, appreciate the natural succulents, and enjoy the secluded sand.
If you get hot or lonely, just run down the hill and you'll hit the ocean and find the tourists. Sunset in Carmel
#Beachbound San Fran, you’ve been groovy, as always 🤘🏼Big Sur, if you look as sexy in the daytime as you look in the nighttime 🤣 I’ll come back and check you out again ✌🏼Until soon! #travel #yogi #photography #vibes #blessings #thankyou SC, Danny, May and I set off bright and early from Folsom on our PCH roadtrip. First stop was this Carmel Mission in the idyllic seaside town of Carmel-by-the-Sea. I think I fell in love with the quaint cottages and shops dotted the town, and the fact that this is a dog-friendly town. Most of the shops had water bowls laid out for the dogs, and you bet I made lotsa four-legged furry friends! I'd love to come back here someday with my own dog!

#beach. #roadtrip Carmel by the sea. One of the most beautiful beaches I have laid eyes on. Best burger in town, and the dessert is pretty darn good too. A short walk up the road leads to Whalers Cabin. Built by Chinese fishermen in the 1850's, it is now a cultural history museum. The Whaling Station Museum, opened in 1994, is adjacent. Both are open as docent staffing permits. Carmel by the Sea #beachbound sweepstakes entry Point Lobos A view of China Cove in Point Lobos State Park. We have some wonderful parks in Califonia.
