Weekend Getaway - Monterey, Carmel & Santa Cruz

We headed up to Monterey for Bill's annual Sea Otter Classic mountain bike race. It was a picture perfect weekend with above average temps.
Bill getting his bike ready for the race with Sara keeping him company. The event had bikes for all ages .... ..when will Sara start riding with Daddy?


Foggy morning in Monterey before the race.

Later we had a picnic enjoying the wonderful weather.


Feeding the ducks.


Next we were off to Carmel - another one of our favorite spots to visit.

A few doorways I found in Carmel - such a charming town.


Our last day we decided to check-out Santa Cruz. They had unusually high temps in the 90's - so we made it a short and sweet visit since it was getting hot and crowded.
