We finally had some rain! Two separate storm fronts in the last month, and even a multi-day storm expected to roll in tomorrow. All I can say is we NEEDED it. With some of our water well tests coming back over the Summer at less than positive numbers, we could use some help with the local water table. Anything to push those raw land deals along!
This past Friday evening, Carmel held the annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony, and after one of the longest droughts on record, it was completely rained out in one of the most torrential downpours I’ve seen in a long time. Upon arrival, we ran across the street, already soaked to the bone, and bought the first celebratory umbrella we could find. The rain let up right as it was time to light the tree, and by then most people had scattered into the nearby restaurants and bars to take cover. We caught the tail end of the commencement Christmas song by Myles Williams on the mic, and then darted through the Wells Fargo parking lot to local favorite restaurant, Tommy’s Wok, to meet friends and family. I’ve never seen it so crowded! We wrapped up the evening at Boucheè, which is a great fine dining French restaurant off of Ocean on Mission Street. Highly recommend.
Real estate-wise, Carmel and Pebble Beach slowed down a bit for the holidays. We historically get our typical flurry of business from about the week after Thanksgiving through the week leading up to Christmas. It feels like that is happening a little bit again this year. Then things slowly pick up again after the New Year.
