MORNING

8A

An early morning breakfast date with my husband at Winston’s in Pacific Grove. We love to share something savory (the eggs Benedict is to die for!) and something sweet (the blueberry ricotta pancakes).

10A

Grab a house-roasted coffee from Captain + Stoker’s Pacific Grove shop, right around the corner.

11A

Pop into Tejido Collective in Carmel-by-the-Sea. I love shopping here for beautiful gifts. I’d pick up a soft cozy wrap to wear and an oracle card deck to break into in the afternoon in Big Sur.*

*Editor’s note: Allow yourself an hour for the scenic drive from Carmel-by-the-Sea to Big Sur.

Afternoon

12P

Stop at Big Sur Bakery for tea and a chocolate croissant. I'm a total chocolate lover and need to satiate the cravings at least a couple times a day!

2P

Enjoy a massage at Esalen Institute in Big Sur. I’ve been teaching yoga here for almost two years, and it’s still my favorite place to unwind and connect to self. I’d spend the afternoon on the cliffside hot springs, painting in the art barn and meditating under my favorite oak and redwood trees.*

*Editor’s note: Reservations at Esalen must be made in advance and a visitor’s pass is required for those not staying on the property.

Evening

5P

Take an early evening walk and try to catch the most gorgeous sunset at Ribera Beach in Carmel. 

6:30P

Dinner at Stokes Adobe in downtown Monterey. I love the aesthetics inside and the romantic candlelit vibes!
