When we moved here, one of the things that surprised me the most was our close proximity to some of the most beautiful places on the coast of California. Yes, the vineyard hills and oaks are lovely, and we are blessed to live among them. But just to the northwest of us lies the twin heavens of the Monterey Peninsula and Big Sur, which are absolutely spectacular.
For the last two weekends we've taken off for the coast, two weekends ago to the south entrance to Big Sur on a Sunday drive, and this last weekend to Carmel By-The-Sea, which lies just south of Monterey. The idea that we can leave here mid-morning for lunch in Carmel absolutely makes my head explode (in a good way!).
