We were able to spent only a few minutes in Carmel, but it was spectacular. Everything was pretty, the houses, the ocean, the flowers, like a little paradise. I need to go and visit it again, maybe try to manage it next year.
All I can say is that I would not mind to have a house in that part of the world and live there full time or at least have an ability to visit it many times each year. You probably know many places like that, this is one of them. But to be specific to this photo, you have to tell us what it is and where it is.
Saturday Update: Great participation on this one, you guys rock! Good suggestions on where it is, but artandkitchen got it right, it is Carmel Mission Basilica in Carmel (California)!
If it was not for my wife, I would not come to this place. She wanted to check it out and see if their book store sells some type of special book she was looking for. But I think if it was not for me, we would actually not got on the grounds of this place, at least that is what I’m telling myself, she might have a different opinion. I’ll find it soon, after it is go live and she reads it. Anyway, to get on the grounds you have to go through the front office where all the souvenirs, books and other stuff get sold. There you have to buy tickets to enter the grounds. To our dismay we learned that tickets were somewhere in $10 range (maybe a bit less), a bit pricy for our taste. So we didn’t go in. Instead we went back out and I decided to take some photos from the outside the wall. Twenty or so minutes later we were walking back to the front of it and saw that they opened main gates to the grounds and people were going in and out. I don’t recall any signs prohibiting entry onto the grounds so we slowly made our way into it, acting like we belong. The grounds are beautiful and the church is pretty cool too. I’m glad my wife have great suggestions on the places we should visit.
I hope everyone is having a good Friday and looking forward to a nice weekend. I’m sure looking forward to it.
To keep with my newly established tradition I’m not disclosing location of this photo. Lets see if anyone recognizes this place. Should I provide a hint? hmm, maybe, lets just say that if a good earthquake strikes, I would not want to be inside of it.
