More pretty houses


Whilst on our holiday, my husband and I took a bus tour to Carmel and Monterey. I had really wanted to stay in Carmel but it just didn't work out, but at least I got a flying visit. Many of you may be aware of the Hugh Comstock storybook cottages, which are what we wanted to see. We managed to track them down during our 1 hour at Carmel, but they were very difficult to photograph, due to the terrain, trees and landscaping. If you ever plan to visit, they apparently sometimes have open houses, so I think that would be the best chance of viewing them properly. It was a very picturesque town anyway, so well worth a visit. 



This was a B&B in Monterey we found. Loved it.


And lastly, we took a drive down 17 Mile Drive which is apparently where all the millionaires live. It was pretty spectacular with the rocky coastline and twisted old cypress trees. Someone there had the good fortune and good taste to build a French gatehouse. Again, hard to photograph. I was down the hill from it, on a narrow windy bit of very busy tourist road without a footpath. 



A really lovely spot to visit, but it has been a very expensive holiday - more so than France that's for sure. But on the upside, the people are friendly. See you all!
