A beautiful day to drive down the west coast

Yes, today I will be driving about 750 miles down 101 for about 8 hours to Carmel-by-the-see. Yikes, you say, but just think of the wonderful way to see spring in all its glory. It's rhododendron time, California poppies, and lupins; the rivers aren't swollen so will be nice and clear. Usually I drive by about two elk herds within the first couple of hours. And, of course, going over the Golden Bridge is always a thrill.

What am I doing writing this blog when I should get an early start? Not today, today I want to get there about sunset because today is the Big Sur Marathon and many thousands of people converge on the Monterey Peninsula.

Why am I going to Carmel at this time:

1. Commercial building: I have showings set up for a fabulous building with an Ocean Avenue address in Carmel-by-the-Sea. Check out www.93921.com for information and photos.

2. Carmel Art Festival May 17 - 20: I'm on the board of this annual event and we are going into high gear to get it set up. For more information, check out www.carmelartfestival.org Besides the festival, many galleries in town also hold receptions and art demonstrations. It's great.

3. Carmel-by-the-Sea: Do you REALLY need an excuse to go there besides the fact that it is fabulous?

That's wonderful! I'm sure you had a great day.

Regina: It truly was a great drive. Got to Carmel a little later than usual, I wanted to miss all the Big Sur Marathoners who had been in town. Now it's back to normal here.

I just love Carmel, but it's only about an hour and a half for me. Wow, that commercial listing is a long way from you. Do you have to drive down to show it often?

Hella, you certainly don't need any excuse to visit Carmel by the Sea. But there are plenty good reasons why you should go!
