Carmel is one of those towns that's a rare find. Edgemere is truly a hidden gem in this town, a treasure that only exists in a Tolkien novel. Fortunately for Audrey and I, we get to experience the shire in Carmel. Run by Gretchen and Doug, this wonderful home has enough warmth for all the hobbits, dwarfs and elves of this world. Even for one from Singapore like me. To me, it's the shire. You must be there to experience it. Worth the distance, worth the journey and worth every penny. Gretchen, thanks for everything.
