My boyfriend and I will be spending 3 nights (Wed/Thurs/Fri) at Spanish Bay in July after spending some time up in San Fran. In addition to his tee times at Spyglass (10:00 on Thurs) and Pebble (7:30 on Friday), I also booked horseback riding for Friday afternoon when he is done with golf. I would also like to spend some time checking out Carmel and Big Sur. I was thinking about going straight to Carmel from San Fran Wednesday for lunch and then drive down Big Sur for a bit before checking into the hotel late afternoon/early evening, but would that give us enough time to check out the area? I don't really have a grasp of driving times around these areas from the hotel. I also made dinner reservations for Roys on Thurs. so we can catch the bagpiper first before going to dinner, but are there any other recommendations for good dinner options (I was thinking casual for Wednesday night since it will be a long day of driving and travel and then maybe something a bit nicer for Friday night). I'm open to any suggestions or tips as this will be the first time in the area for both of us!
