As soon as I landed, Fermin picked me up at the SF airport and we headed to one of our favorite areas- Carmel. The door to this little shop in Carmel sums it up well...

|Hacienda style house along the coast in Carmel|

We stayed at La Playa Carmel. And let me tell you! January is a great time to go! It's considered "off season" so rates are a steal. The weather is perfect this time of year too, and the crowds are gone. It couldn't have been more ideal.
|ahhhh, feels like home|
|Cute bikes at out hotel to ride... Cute, but they need some Villy Custom bikes!|
|pretty little courtyard|
|from hotel, towards the back courtyard|
|from courtyard back to hotel|
|my favorite part of the lobby, the tiled stairway|
We spent our day in Carmel wandering around the shops, galleries and eating a really nice dinner. If I lived in Carmel, this would be my church based on name alone. The Church of the Wayfarer. That's right, wayfarer! Wayfarer: n. A person who travels on foot. They're speaking directly to me!
