Breakfast in Carmel

Leave a comment

I’m sitting outside, I can’t hear the crackling of the fire in a large fireplace. I have my cup of joe and waiting for my breakfast. It’s a beautiful day even with the overcast. I’m about an hour from home and it feels like another world. On this trip I’m eating at the Village Corner California Bistro.

IMG_9687.JPG I just left the Moss Beach harbor area and about 2 minutes south is a fabulous farmers market. Packed with local produce and very reasonable prices it’s worth the stop. You’ll find baby bananas…

Wisteria Antiques & Design – A Day Trip to the French Countryside

Leave a comment

My friend Wanda told me about a few places to visit along the coast by Santa Cruz California so off I went. She’s got great taste so I alway trust her recommendations. And alas, she was right, Wisteria will make you feel like you’re touring the French countryside. You’ll tour a home built in 1914 filled with French antiques, and incredible gifts with a French flare. If you’re near Santa Cruz this is a must see!

A Sea of Cypress Trees

My very dear friend Richard told me about a grove of Cypress trees that sits on the cliffs in Moss Beach, just north of Halfmoon Bay in Northern California. So today I went in search of it. It’s a very peaceful, beautiful place to visit so I wanted to show you what it looks like and tell you how to get there.

First the pics…

You’ll also see some nice views of the ocean while walking under the shade of the trees.

To get there put the address to the Moss Landing Distillery in your GPS system. Park there (the last photo was one I took from the parking lot) then walk up past the restaurant and around to your left until you see the sign to the park. Walk straight past the sign and soon you’ll see the trees. Here’s the address for the restaurant and the location to the entry of the park. I hope you’ll check it out!
