When in Monterey, a stop by Lilify to replenish my Earth Milk Moon Cacao Elixir and BY TIDE herbal scrub is always accompanied by a lovely chat with Hanni, the owner. She has the best bags for market hauls, plus scarves to tie onto the baskets.
A walk to Carmel Beach. I like to avoid Ocean Avenue and walk through the neighborhoods instead to get to the Fourth Street beach access. This way you avoid heavy car traffic, and you get to enjoy the dunes as you approach and watch the sun slowly beginning its descent over the turquoise water.*
