Charlie Chaplin in Carmel-by-the-Sea

Carmel CA Attractions

A painting of Charlie Chaplan under a canopy of trees.When I come to Carmel one of my favorite pastimes  is to walk the streets of Carmel-by-the-Sea in evening and enjoy warm lights of the shops and restaurants … without streetlights.   Occasionally this little town surprises me with either its unique sense of architecture or at times its art.   For example, just down the street from La Bicyclette and in the courtyard of the Cypress Inn you will find a fascinating piece of street art painted by Thierry Guetta.   Here is Charlie Chaplin floating in a giant pink heart.  Not exactly what I expect to see in Carmel-by-the-Sea, but still a delight.

Here is a link to Guetta’s wiki page:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Brainwash
