4th of July in Carmel
Once again we escaped to Carmel, CA over the 4th, so as to avoid the firecrackers in the neighborhood at home. The added benefit was visiting with old and dear friends from Illinois who were also in Carmel for vacation. On July 3rd, the skies were blue and the sea just as crystal clear.
The terrible fires near Big Sur were not an issue except for added murkiness in the skies on July 4th at the beach.
One of the many art galleries in Carmel displays some of the "blue dog" artist's works.
Here is the courtyard of our favorite dog-friendly inn, The Vagabond's House.
