We really appreciated the considerably cooler air by the ocean. It was periodically quite foggy, but universally chilly, as the afternoon eased into early evening. Actually, when we were at the water’s edge, it was downright cold!
The views were beautiful, especially where the shore was rocky and jagged. The town of Carmel was especially lovely, but the traffic on the July 4th long weekend was insane! What would have made charming, idyllic photos was rendered impossible by the bumper to bumper stream of cars! Obviously, a return trip to the area is required, on a less hectic occasion!
