Breakfast in Carmel by-the-Sea

I woke up at the crack of dawn to get my first view of Carmel in the daytime and what a sight it was.  My balcony had a magically delightful ocean view!  I brought my book out (which I never opened) and a cup of coffee to accompany me, but I just couldn’t take my eyes off of the ever-changing sky and rocky coast.  IMG_5043 IMG_5041 IMG_2369 IMG_2367

Salt or bird poop–that is the question?  Not a glacier or an iceberg!  hahaIMG_2356 IMG_2350 IMG_2349IMG_2339 IMG_2340 IMG_2338 IMG_2337IMG_5049

Enjoyed a little coffee and English muffins to take in the view here at the hotel once more before heading into the village of Carmel for a proper breaky.  We only stayed one night in this gorgeous seaside city…too eager to move on to Big Sur and see everything along the way!

We filled our bellies at a European style cafe called La Bicyclette on delicious egg creations and mimosas.  After breakfast, we took the seaside drive in Carmel to get a peek of Clint Eastwood’s Ranch–Mission Ranch–where we saw a big flock of sheep and more great views of the water.
