Golf In Carmel California

The Tomatofest Was A Great Time To Golf Carmel

The Real Plan Was Golf.... After All???

Day 1 - 9/14/2007   |    Day 2 - 9/17/2007

We went to the 2007 Tomato Fest in Carmel Valley.  It just so happened that the Quail Lodge has a golf course (image that???).  So we took advantage of the situation and played 18 holes on Saturday morning before the "Hot Tomato Dance" scheduled that evening!  We were joined by Rich and Cecelia of San Francisco!

It All Starts At Edgar's

We played with Rich and Cecelia from San Francisco.  Rich runs a company that teaches people to sail and Cecelia runs an Electrical Contracting Company specializing the design for small businesses.  We had a fun afternoon!
