Flock Of Seagulls :)
Just about anywhere you go in Carmel will be charming. I took this during an evening stroll around the Mission.  Whalers Cove Right off PCH outside of Carmel. Some great coastal vistas.
#waterlust Another great sunset location people crowd around at sunset
vinramundo.smugmug.com 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! Sunset in Carmel.
vinramundo.smugmug.com Sunsets along the Cali coast Another great view on the Big Sur. We went out of season but we hit lucky with the weather and the road and viewpoints were quite, I would imagine in the summer this road is crazy busy. #blue View of the Carmel highlands from the balcony of the room I had, their breakfast in room is pretty awesome too. :) Wonderful short 8 mile hike around the coast. Great place to take a picture of a sunset
vinramundo.smugmug.com Amazing state park. Better in the afternoon with the sunset! #waterlust Fantastic hike at point lobos state reserve. Low tide visit to Point Lobos. A beautiful clear day in late November! I thought this little fellow was asking me, what's your problem? Highway 1 drive is unreal! Flock Of Seagulls #2
Beautiful Shore Line to visit :) Hiking on north shore trail, beautiful. Driving Hwy 1 from Monterey to Morro Bay. It's one of Americas most beautiful highways. Taken Oct'14 at Whaler's Cove near Monterey this stop was part of our CA roadtrip. Found just past the 17 Mile Drive and Carmel make sure to include this stop. Beautiful spots and maybe you'll be as lucky and catch a gorge rainbow 💕 Shoreline at Big Sur China Cove, part of Point Lobos State Reserve, is no longer accessible due to erosion and unstable cliffs; however it can be viewed from above, along with seals and their pups resting on the sand in the spring. #blue Waves crashing against shore at Big Sur Over the river and through the woods #pointlobos #morningrun #carmelbythesea #goodstart The water at Point Lobos (just off of Hoghway 1) is so insanely #blue I didn't even know what to do Allen Grove. ❤️🙌 #California So green. So blue. Deep blue sea blue sky, crashing waves... Pacific coastal route .... A beautiful journey 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! New bridge now open along the Big Sur .
Now able to travel for 50 miles but still not able to travel the whole length , you have to return the same way , still worth the effort , treat it as a day trip not a road to get further south . 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
Point Lobos in Monterey Peninsula, California, is a place of mesmerizing beauty. China cove visit at friends house next to park. Sunset Enjoy the views out on the deck and enjoy a tasty beverage! Point lobos colors
#BeachBound The best place to hike 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 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 Point Lobos A view of China Cove in Point Lobos State Park. We have some wonderful parks in Califonia. #beachbound #lifeatexpedia #beachbound No trip to Monterey/Carmel is complete without a stop at Pt Lobos. This is the California coast at its best. Beautiful park right by the sea. Many beautiful coves. Lots of colors.
Great easy hike and walk. beach House we visit . Beautiful hike! on the cliff. Pacific coast looking back towards Carmel
