A Movie Tour!

Everyone recognizes the Lone Cypress at Pebble Beach.... we were able to experience it as part of our Monterey Movie Tour. Only Mary could find this unique bus tour that provided a drive along the beautiful California coastline including the 17 Mile Drive, Pebble Beach Golf Course, and Carmel ~ AND featured blockbuster scenes from movies filmed across the Monterey Peninsula. It was perfect! Such a fun way to spend the day!
After the tour, our guide gave us directions to the historic Mission Ranch Resort, lovingly restored by the former Mayor of Carmel, Clint Eastwood. Eager to catch a glimpse of someone famous we enjoyed cocktails on the outdoor patio overlooking sheep grazing in the meadow and a wonderful dinner watching the sun set over the Carmel River and Pacific Ocean. We had "coffee" and hung out in the piano bar. In this setting it was easy to imagine that some of the characters we watched may have been famous movie stars in their day...who knows?
Is that someone famous? How does she know soooooo much about movies and the stars? I wonder???

I love that picture of the 4 of you. No movie makeover~ just relaxed and enjoying good times with friends.

We spent some time in Carmel last summer, and had a wonderful time with several friends who lived there, as well as attending a wedding at Pebble Beach. I loved our trip, but now I'm thinking we should go back and do the Movie Tour--we missed out on that!!!
