The Sun! The Sun!

The sun! The sun! Sort of like Ze plane Ze plane, the famous quote.

We had barely seen any sun on Monday or Tuesday, so seeing sunshine by 9 a.m. Wednesday was a happy sight. The golfers probably thought so too.

Bill walked over to the golf course early, and I followed about an hour later. He likes to go to the practice range and watch them hit, so I didn't want to cramp his style. I didn't want to walk too much today, so I thought I would hang around at the far end of the golf course and sit in a couple of the bleachers to watch the play.

So, today was my day for scenery pictures instead of golfer pictures.

On my walk back to Carmel, I notice this little house on San Antonio Drive. It looked so cute, the kind of house I would like to live in.

As I mentioned yesterday, it was a long hard walk up the hill back into Carmel. But, they had benches on each uphill corner, and I took advantage of all of them!

At the main entrance, there were lifesize posters of the previous four winners of the US Open contests held in Pebble Beach.

I took photos of all of them, but for some reason, the one of Jack Nicklaus from 1972 was lost. Here are the others:

Tom Watson in 1982:

Looks like you are having fun. I love the serenity you captured on the "bench photo". Enjoy the rest of the trip!

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Nancy, I am enjoying reading about your trip to carmel to watch this great tournament. I also love your photos. I haven't been to carmel in years and I have almost forgotten how really beautiful it is there. I'm glad you got some sunshine on this day.

Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and photos.
