This weekend Alan and I took a trip to Carmel because we were in the mood for a little adventure. Have you ever been? It was our first time visiting, and I couldn’t get over how quaint everything was. We parked downtown (for free since there are no parking meters anywhere!) and stopped to eat a few huge pretzels from this popular bakery. Walking through the neighborhoods was my favorite part. There are no sidewalks, street lights, or even addresses! And I loved how the cottages all had names instead of house numbers. It’s definitely the kind of place you’d dream about opening up a bed and breakfast (or, if you’re like me, staying in one for an extended period, haha).
