2013 Carmel Day 1
Up early, Sharon, Jack and I headed to Carmel. I always forget how long it takes to get there; it took us just about 3 1/2 hours. Morgan has been spending the week with her mother in the Carmel Valley. We picked her up about 11:30 am and headed into Carmel. We had a nice lunch at La Bicyclette.
After dropping Morgan off back at her mom's home, we went to The Celebration of the Passion of the Lord at the Mission San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo. It was a very nice Good Friday celebration in a cool setting.
Much to Jack's chagrin, the plan was to spend the night in Carmel. We checked into the Wayfarer Inn just a couple of blocks off Ocean Avenue. Sharon and I wandered around the downtown and then had a drink at Grasing's where Sharon had made reservations before heading back to the room to get cleaned up for dinner.
The three of us finished the night with a very nice dinner at Grasing's. I had Grasing’s “Paella”, while Sharon had the Abalone. We shared a bottle of Mary Edwards 2009 Klopp Ranch Pinot Noir.
