Last week my mother had a quick getaway to Monterey and Carmel
A one night trip is perfect for recharging and relaxing.
In Carmel, we stopped by a mediterranean restaurant called Dametra Cafe for lunch. It was super cute but the people we encountered were even cuter.
A few minutes after my mom and I sat down, a group of older ladies strolled in laughing and smiling. My first thought was “oh how nice, these women were able find friends after retiring”. Well turns out these women have been friends for 50 years! They all graduated from Oregon State and each year they meet at a new destination for their annual reunion.
Wouldn’t you all love if you and your friends were like these ladies? Seems almost too perfect but hey I bet it’s possible!
I delightfully chatted with this one woman Linda. Oh how just talking to her made my day a little brighter!
If you are in Carmel, I suggest you check out Point Lobos. It’s a beautiful state park with small beaches, and hiking trails.
17 mile driv: sunny day, gorgeous waves.
A couple of years ago I never thought I would be saying this..but can’t wait for our next trip mum!
