Sweet California – Part 2

The most striking part of Monterey and Carmel Bay is its phenomenal photo-worthy landscapes, filled with mountains and abundant plant life.

Carmel Bay, is a resort town, just 15 minutes away by car from Monterey. It is a unique natural wonder. The town is also rich in vintage and bohemian boutiques, which will satisfy any shopping connoisseur, who loves the California, laid-back style.

At the end of the trip, my friend gave me a peach. She added sarcastically, “It’s a good one. California peach; only for California people…The ones that are transported for commercial purposes never taste alike.”

And thanks to my friend, I’ll never forget that taste. I can still taste its melting texture and phenomenally sweet flavor.

Later on, I discovered that the ripe peaches are too delicate and bruise easily. Therefore, they are picked green in order to transport them to different states. So, they end up never ripening well.

And here I am, back in New York, with a longing to visit the West Coast again.

Have you ever experienced the same thing? Do you very often, no matter where you are, want to be where you are not?
