Downtown Carmel and Monterey Window Shopping at Easter

I enjoy exploring all of the different small town personalities along the Monterey Bay coast.   Santa Cruz is a second home with the easy 30 minute drive from Silicon Valley when I want to escape and take walks by the ocean. 

It is fabulous to take extra days off and be able to indulge in the towns on the south side of Monterey Bay.  On this last trip, I changed my routine because of our much needed rain due to arrive during my trip. What to do in the rain?

I was a bit anxious because a must-do on my check list is to walk along the Monterey Coastal Trail and to visit downtown Carmel. Both of these are better to do without rain.

And then, I got my huge surprise. When I arrived, the clouds started clearing away and the sun came out. I love this special hello greeting to start my adventure!     

One of my favorite things to do is wandering through this small European village, Carmel, where I cruise up and down their main street, Ocean Avenue

Peeking into the windows of all of these fun shops is especially fun around the Easter holidays with all of the distinctive decorative pieces waiting for their new keepers to purchase. 


It is Easter time! 

It takes quite a long time to wander through to all of the many fabulous courtyards and alleyways.





What is there to do in Carmel and Monterey in the rain? Stay tuned ... for what I found on this adventure. ~the Fun Tour Guru
