A Visit to Carmel

I was in Carmel over the last four days visiting with my sisters, Gretchen and Lucinda and their husbands, Tom and Richard.
We drove all over the place the first three days.

Took the 17 mile drive, and saw the iconic Lone Cyprus.

We drove down Highway 1 to see the waterfall at Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park, and had a picnic in Pfeiffer - Big Sur Park.

Then we went down to Moss Landing and took a pontoon boat cruise on the Elkhorn Slough via the Elkhorn Slough Safari.
Here are some photos from the cruise - click on them for a bigger view.

Tuesday afternoon a really huge storm came in off the Pacific and the power was out all over the area, so we sat and talked by candlelight.
Called it a night about 9:00 pm, and then of course the lights all
came back on at about 10:00!
It was pretty much cleared up by Wednesday morning so I could take Cindy and Richard to meet their plane in San Jose without incident.

I built a boat, and made a documentary!

I've wanted to build a boat forever, so I finally said "Why not now?", and just did it. Of course I had to document the project too!

Check back later. There are more chapters ahead in the saga of this little boat.
