One of the best things about growing up in Carmel-by-the-Sea is having ample courtyards and quaint alleyways to explore. About every block in town has some kind of little retreat surrounded by shops and cafes. This one is on Dolores near the post office. Jack London's restaurant is in the back. It's changed locations several times over the years, and it is no longer in this location. In fact, a friend said the courtyard has been revamped completely. Seems nothing stays the same for very long!
