I liked the Country Garden Inns a lot. The rooms were clean and cozy. We got the queen suite room and it was amazing. I went swimming and I love how the pool is filled with saltwater instead of chlorine water. IT went up to 8 ft deep, which is perfect for me, and it was very enjoyable. The breakfast buffet had amazing food. The waffles were cooked perfectly and the hot chocolate was divine. The blueberry bread was perfect. Overall Country Garden Inns is an amazing place to stay.

It was a very narrow road and then a sign appeared, telling us 'Road Narrows'. I was still driving at this stage and I was a bit intimidated by the narrow lanes and hairpin turns. In some sections you were lucky to do more than 20-25 mph. We stopped somewhere along the way where there was a petrol station ...
... antique stores and boutiques. Despite the obvious wealth there's still a very relaxed California feel to the town making it a perfect place to while away a few hours. Unfortunately, much to Jo's chagrin, we didn't have any hours to while away. So we went for lunch at the Merlot Bistro on Ocean Avenue. A perfect spot for a glass of rosť! After a very pleasant lunch we headed back to the car and drove the short distance to our home for the next ...
... it is a small one, so small I couldn't find it. All I saw was seals sitting on rocks barking to other seals that my rock is bigger than your rock, and fat seagulls waddling after garbage trucks trying to get airborne to chase the tender waste. Rather than face another abandoned clam chowder bread bowl we rented push bikes and cycled 17 miles to Carmel. Clint Eastwood was Mayor of Carmel once upon his career. But that still didn't impress me as much as ...

Pebble Beach: There is a 17 mile (toll) road you can drive around Pebble Beach. You get to drive through some of the golf courses on this peninsula which were amazing. I would send my ball into the ocean everytime. I was disappointed that we really did not see much of the actual Pebble Beach Golf Course that you see on TV. The coast line there is quite stunning.
... entire Monterey Bay region. The descent was 5 miles of 40 + miles per hour fun and it was a blast!
I haven't been able to take hardly any pictures at the speeds were riding....it would be dangerous to try and take photos. But I've been told that about 200 pictures a day are posted on Facebook under "Ride 2 Recovery" if you'd like to check them out.
Tomorrow is Big Sur and 100 miles from Carmel to San Simeon!
Until tomorrow! God Bless America! ...
