So it just didn’t feel like we were having a weekend in Carmel if we drove straight to Monterey for Afternoon Tea, then our hotel in Seaside where it’s a more affordable stay. What did we do next? Drove to Carmel of course, even if it was after 5:30pm and shops might be closed, I had to take a peek! So that’s exactly what we did, and most of our favorites were still open!! Yay!!
My top favorite building is the Tea Rose! They don’t serve tea here, but carry many tea related items for sale. And something new since our last visit…artwork fashioned after the gorgeous English style buildings all over this quaint town. I was amazed, especially by the depictions of the Tea Rose! I love this town so much for it’s taste of English culture and it’s quaint beauty! It’s no coincidence that my favorite town because of it’s wonderful people and quaint atmosphere is called “the Carmel of Oregon!” If you ever have a chance to visit Cannon Beach, Oregon or Carmel, California, or both, DO IT!! They are both well worth it!!
Okay, on to the loveliness of Carmel: (all photos are cell phone photos again)
The Tea Rose
I kind of love it a lot! :>
My Sweetie loved going to “Cottage Sweets” as a kid, still does to be honest!
Doesn’t this town have pretty buildings?!!
Hello Sweetie! (I made him pose in the cute window for me!)
I think this is better than the “Two Hags” in Dublin, although they are funny. But how sweet is this couple?
I can’t wait for next time!
