It literally took a village to complete this project and would not have been possible without the generous support of our local sponsors.

Our sponsors not only helped to fund the printing costs of the book, they also offered their support and encouragement throughout the entire process of bringing this project to life. Our village is truly a special place, filled with people who care about each other, visitors and pets and who strive to improve and preserve the charm that is uniquely Carmel by-the-Sea.

Feel free to follow the walking map on our activities page and visit these locally owned businesses.


Sharing our love of pets, reading and Carmel-by-the-Sea with you.
