Last summer I was able to go to the beautiful California seaside town of Carmel. It is hands down one of my favorite California towns. I promised myself that I would take an entire afternoon to walk up and down the streets to take pictures of the cottages. The gardens in these homes are usually beautiful. One of the many charms of Carmel is that there are not any house numbers. Each house is uniquely named. This gate artfully displayed the house name as "Le Chat". While in Carmel I had tea at the Tuck Box . They have a wonderful patio, and delicious buttered scones! On the side are a couple of jams that are made there, and a small bowl of whipped cream. Who could ask for anything more?
