Well we did Carmel again with the Catso. As usual he is not a good car rider. Meowing and restless the whole way there and back. Three hours each way via 680 and 156. I usually like to take Highway 1, for the scenery but that takes double the time.
The Quail lodge raised its prices 50/night, bless their hearts and cut out the early bird special priced dinner, bless their hearts again.
Lucky the weather was awesome and I had a bit of a swim in the warmish pool. They could do well to up the pool temp just a wee bit.
Apparently, Clint Eastwood owns the place, so my friend says.
Ate at Louie LInguini next to the Fish Hopper after we dropped off the cat at the hotel. Not a bad place, always was going past there but never tried it. The stir fried calamari was especially good. Apparently there is a restaurant a street away called the Sardine FActory that has high acclaim and high prices to match ! Will try that one of these days.
Edgar at the hotel was good for dinner the next night. But more pricey without the early bird special. Doggone. But the local specialty the Sand Dab (a type of sole) was tasty. Their clam chowder is great to chow down on too.
The highlight was breakfast at the tiny but very expensive hotel in carmel valley
Luxurious place ! Dinner must be 100 for two people as our breakfast (one order of french toast and one Bernardus bfast special) was 50 bucks. TAsty but definitly on the pricey side.
HOtel night there is bout 450/night, much more then the 250 at the Quail.
Its for the bay area rich to escape . I would imagine the room being 450 they probably blow that much at the salon with a massage and a treatment or two.
Whopper had his 10th birthday bash recently. With balloons and cake and even a few invited guests. Haha. Then i figured out he’s actually 11.
And now that hes older he has to take two pills a day. One for back pain (arthritis) and one for a too vigorous thyroid. Took him to the vet because he was pulling out his hair in big chunks. Didn’t know what was up with that? Doc said his back is hurting and hes pulling hair because of the pain. She was right. The pills stopped him doing that.
He is a horrible car rider, and only would quiet down when his mommy holds him.
