Carmel Day 3 - Scenic Drive

After speeding the whole 24th of December in Carmel downtown, 25th morning we started for home. We were not in hurry. We wanted to take the last essence which was still left there. We decided to go visit the Carmel Mission on our way home.


 My son was eager to visit the mission, as he is studying about the missions in California in his current grade. Before leaving Carmel we just wanted to go to the beach. 



Though we didn't have any plan to stroll in the beach in the cold, but just to feel the breeze. Moreover, we were not prepared for the beach. The road along the beach was known as scenic drive. 


However, the road was scenic not only for the beach, but also the houses along the road. As soon as we entered the road my mouth became opened wide. I just couldn't utter a single words for few moments.

This is most probably the Tor House


 I saw many lovely houses on previous days. Somehow, these houses on scenic drive completely blew away me. First we thought we only drove on the road and would stop directly at the mission. Later, we changed our mind, the stopped our car, just look around the area. Then my son started getting impatient and drove to the mission. 


Among those traditional English Cottages few were very ultra modern houses, and one of them is this one.
..To be continued.

Driving along the coast there is beautiful. When my husband was in the Army we lived in Monterey and use to do that drive ever so often.

Dearest Krishna,
Well, the beach of course is not a good time for Christmas season... too windy and the water too cold too.
But an interesting scenic route to follow anyway.
Hope your son learned something for the subject he was studying.
Hugs,
Mariette

I like the houses you have shown, the last one must have a wonderful view of the sea.
The sand looks inviting.

Great tour! I didn't do that scenic drive. I did the 17 mile drive on the Monterrey Peninsula instead.

Nice houses and love the ones with stones and bricks. I love seeing houses on the coast as many of them are so beautiful! Children just need to learn patience. Eventually what you want to see will be there, etc. Thanks for the tour of Carmel!

Que lugar maravilhoso! Adorei as casas mais tradicionais... acho que se integram melhor na paisagem! Ainda não estou muito habituada a apreciar edifícios com linhas muito modernas e aerodinâmicas...
Grata pela belíssima partilha! Beijinhos

Is this Carmel by the Sea? My daughter just visited there this year. I'd love to see the Mission. I am off to see the other photos of Carmel. Wonderful pictures, and thank you for sharing.
