Carmel, Point Lobos State Natural preserve, and Big Sur.

After The Hoedown which I talked about in last post, I had a quick 5 day house sit in Nevada city .   Here is a post about Nevada city from a stay I did there last year. https://sueswanderings.com/2018/01/03/nevada-city-california/.

This time was a quick  sit with Stanley and Lexie

My next house sit is in Atascadero , CA. but with 3 days to play I decided to stop in Carmel on the Sea. I got a cute little Air BnB right near town and was able to walk to town and the beach. Carmel beach is beautiful with clean white sand.

The downtown area is cute and full of shops, restaurants, wineries, and gardens. However I find it a bit pricey for my liking. It is a very upscale town. I did hand out my petsitting card  to a few people. Who knows. Maybe go back to petsit one day.

I spent one day at Point Lobos state reserve which is only a couple miles from Carmel and beautiful and wild. It is definitely worth a stop. I hiked the 5 mile trail along the coastline.

I also drove to Big Sur one day. I stumbled upon a wedding photo shoot while there. Here are a few of my photos.

Some more photos of this beautiful stretch of coastline.

The California coastline really is amazing. North, central and south. South being more crowded and congested but still beautiful. Northern and central coastline are rugged and wild. Do your self a favor and get to the California coast.

 

Next stop is Atascadero !!
