Other than a few quirks with the ceiling fan, lack of airconditioning, and parking it was a pleasant stay. This hotel was recommended to us by a seasoned traveler and we would definitely recommend to others who are planning a stay in Carmel. Parking is a bit difficult and frustrating unless you can get a space in the hotel's guest lot. The hotel lot does not accomodate many cars and parking on the streets can be a bit tricky b/c the parking spaces are metered throughout the day, until the evening. You just have to make sure you feed the meter until the evening hours, then again in the morning when metered times pick back up. But the hotel is in the heart of Carmel, convenient to everything. Friendly staff and charming rooms.

Drove along the amazing highway 1 into big sur today before going and chilling at the local beach, where the locals deliberately remove the sign so tourist can't find it ( friendly bunch of people ...) before checking into a campsite for the night, we then had a recommendation to go to a beautiful local restaurant where the sunset is truly gorgeous, had a fantastic dinner before retreating to our pitch in the woods for the night ...
... congregation. We watched 7 young people baptised with full immersion. Then our choir sang 3 pieces just beautiful! Incredibly moving and not a dry eye in the house. It really was the highlight of the trip. We then drove to to the Simi Valley to the Ronald Reagan museum where the 2 bands performed to a predominately Inaburra audience. We wandered quickly ...
... t even see the trees. The road was wet and there are no guard rails, not my favourite drive of the trip! When we got there, the parking lot was so full as well as the streets in either direction for miles, that because of the poor visibility we decided to give it a miss and headed back down the hill. We drove across the Richmond bridge, which is a very strange double decker bridge, but adds to the list of bridges we ...
... and Clarence Anglin in June 1962 in one of the most intricate escapes ever devised.
Dylan is not too enamoured by his mornings activity (past the boat) which is totally understandable, so instead he puts on a nursery rhyme concert for us in the dining room standing up a set of steps which he calls the stage. Thankfully everyone else has headsets on and we don't draw too much attention as the nursery rhymes are accompanied by stomping. Rich reads ...
