Carmel Beach at Sunset

Even for a moment, to watch its Sunset will be worth the drive.”

Carmel Beach is one of my top beaches in Northern California with its beautiful blue waters and fine powdery white sands. It’s so vast that everyone gets to have a piece of calm and quiet.

We don’t need a house nor have millions to enjoy a water view. Anyone can have their own beach front anytime. We just need to pack up and leave when the Sun is gone.

Carmel Beach is a treasured Gem of Carmel-by-the-Sea.

Adventure Lifestyle is real. Not only it relaxes the mind, but makes the heart happier and younger. Anyone can achieve it if they want to. A school mate was found dead in her condo in Houston alone. May she be in Heaven now, but I hope she get to experience as many adventures and joyful experiences this World has to give before dying at 49. Living in the moment is not selfishness, it’s simply acknowledging at any time, our lives will be taken away. All that riches we worked so hard and gave our youth, we will leave all of them behind. All will remain what is Earthly.
Uniquely Carmel are it’s shape shifting Royal Cypress Trees. Amazing too are the changing Ocean colors from deep blue, to pastel blue to blue green to emerald green. Bluest is in the morning. All colors transitioning in one day.
Golden Hour of Carmel Beach is that time to make a wish. It is that time to believe there is a unforeseen miracle made for each one of us from the day we were born. Yes, we all are that special and should never forget our value.
Dinner, Clam Chowder in a can and left over Hawaiian Bun with Corned Beef. Wife can’t believe it’s all I want and got stressed at Safeway Food Deli trying to decide what I should eat. I said, “I’m just craving for canned Clam Chowder. It’s good and cheap.” She gave me a look, but saw later how serious I was when I started eating it like it’s so delicious. It was, just salty and cold. Honestly, with the Ocean View and the Sunset alone, I was already full. Food was just to satisfy physical hunger. A passerby stared at me eating chowder from the can inside the car. I didn’t care what he thinks. My senses were so delighted enjoying all the experiences all at once.

It’s a Dog friendly beach. It’s rolling waves are gentle, making it safer for small children to play along the shoreline.

Sometimes, one can spot Pod of Dolphins swimming and jumping above the water. To see them so close is an unforgettable exciting experience.

This Dolphins where from Clearwater. Monterey-Carmel Dolphins are much harder to capture on Camera. They are fast and appear randomly. Clearwater Dolphins appear close to the Pier close to Sunset and every Dolphin Watch Tug Boat Ride.
A Sunset becomes more when we want it to be more. Same with Life.

But most beautiful to witness is it’s perfect Sunset. It’s peaceful. It’s romantic. It’s a sign of hope to every Dreamer that tomorrow, they may bet to celebrate the fruition of their dreams under the Californian Sun.

I work evening. It is easier for me to catch a Sunset than a Sunrise. So, I’m working on seeing more Sunrise because I can not remember the last recent one. My memory keeps going back to Sunrise at Galveston Seawall that was so long time ago. It can’t be the last one.

We have a lifetime but we can count with our fingers how many Sunrise and Sunsets we appreciated and remembered. We see them everyday driving to and from work and still miss the magic and miracle unfolding before our eyes. Too sleepy. Too tired. Too busy. Too focused, Too worried of so many things. None is an excuse to not experience one of God’s most beautiful of creations. It’s Life. It’s Gold. It’s an enough to believe we are important in this World.

Carmel-by-the-Sea, unforgettable, charming and quaint coastal community. Its street is lined with stores, restaurants and inns.

Thank you all for the likes and comments. I appreciate them very much. I promise to catch up next week. All work till Tuesday. Yep, Vacay is often followed by long work week. But that’s okay. Got enough happy batteries to keep me going.

  1. What a lovely beach! I love the weathered trees. Our SW Florida beaches are beautiful but often crowded.

    I once had a dolphin swim up to me while I was swimming. There is a nearby jetty where groups of dolphins often give impromptu performances. It’s quite a sight!

  5. What a beautiful beach. This looks like the perfect place to watch the sunset. Your pictures are absolutely stunning. It’s funny because I only really pay attention to the sunrise or sunset while on vacation. It’s something I should do more often.

    What a beautiful beach and to experience it both during daytime and during the magical glow of golden hour is a real blessing. 💕

    That canned soup of New England Clam Chowder looks mighty good too. Must be unique to your part of the world cuz all we have it is the Cream of Chicken soups. 😆

    Glad you had that lovely outing with your family.
