Posts Tagged ‘Carmel’

I really like the Bob Hope/Bing Crosby “Road movies”. Our trip wasn’t quite as hilarious as theirs tended to be, but last week my parents and I did take a short trip up to Carmel. We drove, since my parents said that the trip up was supposed to be absolutely gorgeous along the coast.

Not us.

We took the PCH most of the way there (and back) and it was definitely beautiful:

The twists and turns that come with winding your way around enchanting mountains and gorgeous coastline…well, while there were no “STOP THE CAR NOW” moments, I will say I was quite disappointed in my roller-coaster-raised constitution. It simply would NOT hold it together for more than 20 minutes or so before I would start turning a “delightful” shade of green.

I called this the Bridge of Doom.

On the way back it was a lot easier to access the numerous turnouts created along the road so we were able to get some really great pictures.

Showing his good side for the camera

During our trip we made two really fun stops, but I took so many pictures that they’re getting the separate posts they deserve — so look for those soon! (Hint, one involves some marine life, and one involves someone in one of my favorite movie musicals…Newsies!)
