carmel has beautiful, sandy beaches. an interesting fact about carmel is that town is extremely dog friendly and this holds true to their beaches. if you don't like pups.... be wary, as all doggies run free. literally there are dogs everywhere. the best part, is it seems no one takes advantage and they keep the beach very, very clean. in the 15 years i've spent visiting carmel, i've never stepped in an "accident". never.
ok... back to the point. here are a few shots of our beach fun...
