Our weekend in the Carmel-Monterey area continued to involve great friends, wine and food! On Saturday evening, we met on the beautiful 17-Mile Drive resort in Pacific Grove, at the Inn at Spanish Bay.

We gathered at 5:00 on the patio at a fire pit, with blankets and some wine to keep us warm.

At around 6:00, you can begin to hear the faint sounds of a bagpipe in the distance. The crowd begins to come out to the lawn to watch the bagpiper walk along the path from the golf course, along the dunes, then closer to us as he plays.

Love your leather jacket-Italy???

Barb Cabot:

I can't say how much it warms my heart to see all these friend's together. What a great time. I wish I could have been there. Rob and Wendy live in a magical area.

Oh, I love bagpipes. Add a sunset, friends, & vino - what else could you ask for?

Thanks for sharing.

Vicky:

Gotta love Carmel in July...overcast, cold, jacket weather! Memories from so many childhood summers trolling through the shops on Ocean Avenue! Thanks.

Amy:

Looks wonderful!
And Palma, you could be a New Yorker, you wear black very well! *grin*

What fun!!! And brrrrrrrr!!!!!! It looks mighty chilly there. I guess I have been living in a cave. I never realized it was that cold in California in the summertime.

Wendy:

And though there is sun around the peninsula, PB is still under cloud coverage.
I loved the fact you attached a piper video. Great post about a wonderful weekend. Until next year...
