Carmel-by-the Sea

Under the world-famous Pebble Beach Golf Links is the northern- most part of the Carmel public beach.  This is a leash-optional stretch of beach. Bailey wears his e-collar so he doesn't chase the beach birds.  That is not allowed.  Otherwise, the dogs are in beach heaven.

After a run on the beach, we headed to our favorite spot to stay.  The Carmel River Inn is at the south end of the town.
Dog friendly, so as I write this Chloe and Bailey relax at the foot of our bed.
 The motel is fine, but the cottages at the back of the property are the places to stay.  The below unit is where we stayed the first time we stayed here four years ago.
The unit we are staying at this winter is a much bigger one-room cottage.
The cottage is $128 per night now.  $20 extra per dog per night.  The same cottage in June, July and August will be over $450 per night.

The food at the Rio Grill by the inn was wonderful.  You want to get there early or make reservations.  The food and drinks were great.  I had the pork shank plate with chili verde sauce.

Carmel is expensive, but doing it way off season makes it reasonable.
