WE stayed there last September. Very, very nice. Enjoyed the gorgeous views from the room, champagne and chocolates delivered to your room upon arrival, nice wine and cheese reception in the afternoon and great jacuzzi tub.

Don't miss Pt. Lobos State Park, and a drive to Big Sur. We had an outstanding dinner at Sierra Mar @ the Post Ranch Inn during our stay. Go to Carmel and browse through the shops, beach, etc. Monterey has the wharf and Cannery Row, aquarium, all of which are very fun. Enjoy your trip! ***kim***

We drive that road very slow and stop to take lots of pictures, it took us about 50 minutes give or take from Tickle Pink. In Carmel, you must try Casanova and Bouchee. Both are very, very good. We'll back at the Highland's Inn next month for three nights and I want to try Tutto Mundo in Carmel. La Boheme is very nice for a French-cafe type place with great food.

Take the 17 Mile Drive and have a meal at Roy's. Try to get there for sunset and hear the bagpiper play. They will reimburse you for your entrance fee, around $8.50. In Pacific Grove, check out The White House for a romantic meal in a Victorian mansion. The Old Bath House in PG is also very nice. We like to get there for the early bird dinners which included appetizer, salad, entree and dessert for a reasonable price.

Any other questions, feel free to ask! If you go to Carmel Valley, check out Wickets at the Bernardus Lodge. The property is beautiful and food very yummy! Try the prawn/avocado/mango salad there with a glass of Bernardus Sauv Blanc. Heaven on earth! ***kim***
