California Coastal Trip - More Carmel

The Tuck Box - such a quaint little restaurant.
Gardens in front of a shop

What has always called to me the most in downtown Carmel are the wonderful little cottages, with their shingled roofs and wonderful gardens. The sweetest shops and restaurants can be found in the cottages close to the main street, Ocean Avenue. Above is the Tuck Box, one of my mother's favorite places to go. And below are photos one of the newest shops that Mary and I fell in love with. French themed of course, because anyone who know me knows what a Francofile I am! (Mary too!) The name of the store is Souvenir.

Ooooh, lovely pictures!! I just love those little cottages and shops in Carmel! And it's been years since I've been there, I'm sure it's even better now! Lucky you!
