Carmel, California

Carmel, California is a resort town located on the Monterey Peninsula just south of the famed 17-Mile Drive. The Pebble Beach golf course touches the Carmel beach at its north end. To the south is Point Lobos, where the Big Sur begins. We visited Carmel and the surrounding area on Columbus Day weekend, 2000.

Sea otters play in the Carmel surf. They come close out of curiousity when they hear dogs bark, and since many people exercise theri retrievers here, there's lots of barking to attract the otters.
