... on the beach. Great for the dogs, but the owners have to clear up any mess made. Must admit, everyone we saw did clean up after their dogs which was good.
Carmel & Monterey is obviously, very, very wealthy and the houses are stunning. We checked on Trip Advisor for places to go and eat and decided to try Dametra. It is ranked number one on Trip Advisor and is usually very, very busy. The hotel could not manage to get through to make a booking, ...
