I spent a wonderful Memorial Day with my sister in Carmel, CA. We managed to pack in a full day and hit many of the different areas such as downtown Ocean Avenue with all the adorable Gingerbread style homes and shops (that will be another post), then we headed towards Carmel Valley, a more rural area, that is scattered with some incredible nurseries, antique stores, restaurants and so much more; our final stop was the Carmel Mission ~ my very favorite California Mission ~ to light a candle for my mom.
Whenever my sister and I are in the area, we always make a pit-stop at one of our favorite stores, Tancredi & Morgen.
While my sister was paying for her purchases, I roamed across the parking lot to check out the memorabilia located at the Baja Cantina.
In all the times I have been here, I never paid much attention to these amazing vintage gas station tanks. However, with my camera in hand, these tanks took on a whole new life to me.
This is not a gas station as it might appear but a very good Mexican restaurant that houses a plethora of incredibly fun collectibles. So you may not be able to fill your car up here, but you can certainly fill your tummy with some very yummy food and libations!
