A few months ago I participated in a trip to Monterey County in California with a car company. It was a quick 2-day trip where we spent much of the time driving, but the few minutes I got to look at the coastline had me in awe. I vowed to come back again.
I should have known I was going to love the area. Brian visited Carmel-by-the-Sea last fall where he took some amazing photos and shared some of the meals and activities he did while here. But I never imagined that I’d have an opportunity to come back and really focus on all that this area has to offer and get the chance to share it with all of you![alert style=”grey”]Read why we love Monterey County: Pebble Beach CA: Casa Palmero, 17-Mile Drive and The Bench, Travel California: Carmel-by-the-Sea – a Vacation Oasis, Carmel Wine Walk by-the-Sea – Estate-Grown Local Wines, Hotels in Carmel: Hofsas House Hotel, Top Restaurants Near Carmel – Fandango Restaurant, Top Restaurants in Carmel – mundaka Spanish Style Tapas, Travel California: Holman Ranch – Carmel Valley, California Wedding and Event Location – Holman Ranch, Holman Ranch Vineyard – Touring the Winery/[alert]

Now that you’ve seen the list of what I’ll be doing, do you have a guess why it’s #Tentacles? If you guessed it has to do with a new octopus exhibit at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, you’re right!
