Since I work as an attorney by day, it’s hard to get much time off to travel to all of the places I want to see. So instead of globetrotting for half the year like I would prefer, I usually take one or two big trips a year, and then try to fit in as many weekend trips as possible. For this past long 4th of July weekend, we went somewhere we have wanted to visit for quite some time: Carmel-by-the-Sea.
Work has been so stressful lately, that I wanted to go somewhere mellow and relaxing, somewhere that’s slower-paced than Los Angeles. I really just wanted a place where we could read a book by the fire, stroll through town, drink wine and eat great food. Does that make me old or boring? Maybe. Do I care? Not really.
