Carmel, city of 3,900 people and 10,000 art galleries. We visited the Rodrigue Studio, lunched at La Dolce Vita (upstairs on the patio: seafood risotto, spaghetti with roasted eggplant and balsamic vinegar), shopped for red-glazed Sicilian ceramics from Pesaresi on Dolores Street, and enjoyed the view of Carmel with mountains in the background, Hummer in the foreground, and Abbey Road in between. (Four people crossing a street = John, Paul, George, and Ringo.) The weather is perfect.
