It was nearing the new year 2012! Me and my parents decided to go out to enjoy the last bits of 2011. This video shows me and my parents' outing to Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA and Monterey, CA. It was our final trip to end the year 2011.
Firstly, it shows a few clips of the drive to Monterey, CA. We decided to stop by Jack In The Box around Monterey, CA instead of buying clam chowder since it was cheaper that way, let alone a bit healthier. Then afterwards, we headed to Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA. The skies quickly turned gloomy grey and foggy which was not a good thing since we won't be able to see the sun set over the Pacific Ocean, one of my favorite things to see.. :(
We then passed through Ocean Avenue, through the small town of Carmel. Once we arrived to the parking at Carmel, we ate our Jack In The Box. I got the Ultimate Cheeseburger meal. I never had this in a long time so it was awesome! After we ate, we headed to the beach of Carmel.
After enjoying our early dinner in the comfort of our car, we headed out to the beach of Carmel-by-the-Sea. It was quite foggy so no hope for a sunset. It was a bit drizzly as well. It was a good thing that we were bundled up! Despite the chill in the weather, there was quite a bit of people and lots of dogs playing on the sand/beach. We actually walked all the way to the southern end of the beach and then back. We saw some nice scenery despite the fog. We stayed at the beach until 5:20 p.m. or so.
We left the beach coming dusk time. We saw some nice holiday decorations while passing through the small town of Carmel-by-the-Sea. While before turning left onto Highway 1, there was a cop that passed through. Looks like an accident or something. Boy, it was quite foggy while on the way back to Monterey.
We decided to stop by Monterey, CA to get something warm to drink at Starbucks. It was a good thing they still had the Christmas/holiday flavors since I didn't even try one of them yet this year! I got the peppermint mocha while my mom got the white chocolate mocha and dad got the caramel light decaf coffee.
We headed back home and left Monterey by 6:45 p.m. It was a great way to end this year with a bang! :) Happy new year guys!
