I went to the Carmel Mission Basilica a small cute church, Spanish style with large ceilings, wooden chairs and a pretty altar. My parents and I decided to go to Mass and it was worth it, they had a choir girl who had the voice of an angel. They gave a beautiful mass with really good meaningful readings and analysis from the Father Junipero Serra.
After mas we walked the city and entered some shops and ate at The Grill at Ocean Ave. See post soon!
That really cute cottage house you see in the gallery is the Cottage of Sweets http://cottageofsweets.com/
You can smell heaven as you come towards it.
Then you can visit Monterey which is like a 15 minute drive.
The cities are much like Sausalito: small, picturesque, warm, everything walking distance, relax and fun.
