Carmel by the sea and beyond!

Finally we vanquished the reverting of day and night but still woke up around 6 AM in the morning. That's not too bad at all since we headed down to Carmel beach as early as 8 AM to avoid the holiday traffic.

 Clean and purity.

Ignorant of me that I never saw a "brownish-ivory" sea lion before!!  :P 

However, the weather is either unexpectedly colder or we just are not adjusted ourselves back to the temperature from the much warmth Asia, I felt rather chill by the ocean.  I put on all the clothes I can possibly find in the car but that doesn't seem to warm me up at all.  That doesn't matter!! Luckily, I was able to indulging myself with the ocean view and imaging myself as a pretty "jelly fish"!!! lol

The Minnetonka boot is a great choice when I want to walk in the sand while keeping my feet tidy at the same time!! No sand, no fuss!!

LE St. Tropez restaurant is a southern French style of cuisine and they have books "Tin Tin" for kids w/ kids' menu at back of the book. My kids love reading stories about Tin Tin and all of a sudden, Southern France is no longer that indifferent to them!! ^^

I love this intricate print on this cardigan.... another wardrobe much-have all year round! 



Guess what else I found in Carmel?!! 

Pretty jewel-embellished and embroidery boots made from Turkey! They made out of leather or embroidery clothes which they mainly use on garment and purse. They first die the cloth w/o foreseeing the final result of the die, and then they wrap the cloth and glue them onto the leather of boots. The cloth is one of a kind and so do those boots.
