Mar 23, 2019 - Carmel California...til we meet again...and we will ;)

This morning we headed out and went looking for Lou Lou's at the pier for brunch. Sadly, they were done with eggs for the day (we were a little later than expected) but our fantastic server was kind enough to bring us Lou-Mosas (in coffee cups) so we could at least have those. Food was delicious and this tiny house turned diner on the pier is a must experience in this town. The boys decided they wanted to explore the town of Monterey on their own, and the "grown-ups" headed to Carmel for a beach day. Thing is, Carmel is quite possibly the...

May 18, 2013 - Fresno To Monterey

@@@@@@@ BACKGROUND Here are some excerpts from the Lonely Planet - USA chapter ‘Central Coast - Monterey and Around’: Monterey’s allure is all about the fish and the sea. The one-time capital of the sardine-canning industry now lures visitors with a world-class aquarium that is a veritable temple to the bay’s underwater universe. A National Marine Life Sanctuary since 1992, Monterey Bay itself screams for exploration by water, be it by kayak, boat, scuba or snorkel. The city also delivers a window on the state’s Spanish and Mexican roots...

Jul 9, 2012 - On the road again:-)

Så var vi endelig på veien på egenhånd. Vi cruiser rundt i en Chevrolet. Eva kjører og jeg er kartleser. Sammen er vi et godt team på veien. Vi liker nå i alle fall å tro det. Det gikk som en drøm ut av SF uten at vi kunne stole på gps'n. Av en eller annen grunn vil den at vi skal kjøre en helt annen vei enn oss. Som vanlig stoler vi aller mest på oss selv og i dag har det fungert bra. Vi fant highway 1 og tviholdt på den hele veien enda gps'n ville ha oss ut i ødemarken. Vi tok en kort stopp i Santa Cruz før vi ankom Monterrey. En helt...

May 22, 2008 - Pacific Coast Hwy - US1

From the Hearst Castle we drove Hwy 1 to Monterey, 96 miles of coastline, 4 HOURS. There were some narrow places with curves and limited vision. Several times, we had to creep, looking around the stone, which was inches from our motor home, to see if the road was clear. All in all, we are glad we drove the coast, but probably would not do it again in a 37' motor home with a toad.

Sep 8, 2007 - Another fun Drive

We drove onto Carmel. My first impression. Boy did we make a mistake. Here we are back on map readin', yellow huggin' roads. We went to the only RV park close to Carmel, called Carmel by the River. We took these pictures on the way out of RV Park, because on our way in we were beside ourselves. We were astounded that they would even consider putting an RV park - which calls itself "Big Rig Friendly" at the end of this road. It is a one lane in many places with no shoulder and 200 foot drops. There is also a very narrow one lane bridge. I am...
