Trip to Stockton, Carmel

Saturday afternoon and evening were spent in Carmel.  What a quaint little town this is!

I went to Hogs Breath Inn, once owned by Clint Eastwood.  It’s a really unique little hide away with several outdoor patio’s each with it’s own fireplace.  I decided against getting the Dirty Harry burger and opted for a delicious chicken burger instead.

Next I was off to the 1850’s 22 acre Mission Ranch, also previously owned by Eastwood who rescued it in 1986 and turned it into a rustic inn.  Each of the original buildings, including the farmhouse and bunkhouse are now part of the thirty one rooms.  Most rooms look out onto the sheep grazing in the beautiful sprawling fields.  I tried gettin a room for the night but unfortunately they were booked.  What a beautiful place!

The 1770 Carmel Mission is just down the road.

The down to the water in the evening to watch all the groups of people starting their fires on the beach.  What a beautiful way to end the day.  Ahh, life IS good!

Tomorrow, on the the famous 17 mile drive~
