Once we were done with lunch, Nick and I went down to our "private" beach. There is a scenic drive off the coast of Carmel. A lot of people gather near the beginning of the route, but never travel down the road. If you drive further down the coast you can see some spectacular views and some really awesome looking homes. Our favorite is one that has a very asymmetrical shape and the roof is covered with shingles. I call it the Snow White house. I will have to take a picture next time.
At the end of the road there is a little state-owned section that you can park and go onto the beach. There are even bathrooms there, but there fewer people who drive down that far to see the beach so they don't know about it. This is where Nick and I like to come to look out. We took Emmy for a hefty play time in the sand and the headed back to the car for a nap. Nick had a cold so I came prepared with pillows and blankets so that we could take a nap. We brought books to read, but I think I read about two sentences before I fell asleep. This is what we did for a while until my parents called to be picked up.
We then went to dinner as a family a the Monterey Fish House. Nick and I love this place. It's a good thing I made reservations because the place was packed. The food was so good and since we were early for our seating we were able to get out of there early and got home at a reasonable time. It was a great day and I had a lot of fun. I think Emmy enjoyed it too.
