Its a Dogs Day Everyday in Carmel!

Carmel by the Sea, California is truly a special place.137  It is a cottage town that I would define charming, sophisticated, rustic, artistic, lush, wealthy, friendly, and lets not forget the Spectacular  Sea!191 I have been visiting Carmel since I was a little girl, having lived in the Bay Area the visit was only an hour and a half away.   We would always bring our dogs on the visit because then and now Carmel is the most dog friendly city in the Nation. 216 Dogs are everywhere!  I am a dog lover so to be surrounded by dogs in shops, on sidewalks, seated with their owners at cafes and to see them run and play on the beach brings me so much joy and happiness.  The freedom they have is something I envy and desire. Watching them play, and run moves me into playmode too!  I don't think I am alone with this feeling.195 215 Below are highlights of a Dog's World in Carmel by the Sea!!!!! The Ocean/Beach 340 248 242 217 251 235 058 227 065 208 203 241 244 033 Dogs Life in The Town Dogs are greeted everywhere, and they seem to all be well behaved.  I have never seen a dog fight or bad behavior in all my visits to Carmel 153Transportation needed! 136 This is the most elegant dog.  I call this dog the Deco Dog!  A graceful giant that stays with her owner everyday at her Art Gallery. 298 303 A regal Irish Setter enjoying his days with his owner at Fourtanes Jewelry Store. 309 I enjoyed browsing and had my eye on a $55,000 ring!  On a side note I will never be a hand model! I am okay with that.IMG_3431 Hello Fluffy! 288 Lloyds Shoe Store has been around since I was 8 years old! Wow I couldn't believe it was still here on Ocean Avenue. Of course I walked in!!!

Stay tuned for next post on  the Lush Life Carmel has to offer!

Spinning is good for you!

I love to Spin! I don't mean on the tea cups in Disneyland, or twirling on the dance floor or that feeling before you lose your cookies. I am talking about spinning on a stationary bike with resistance simulating riding a bike outdoors.  The perks : You can't get run over by a car, you won't get…

Lanvin I  give  the Fringe Trend two thumbs up as long as it still holds a Sophisticated look and remains Stylish, not country, cowgirl or costumy. Sonya Rykiel Fringe adds…
