The Martine Inn

Summertime and the weather is WONDERFUL!

Summer 2013 has begun so spectacularly -- here on the Central Coast, that is!  Mornings are beginning with sunshine coming through a light misty cool fog -- absolutely perfect for an early stroll  on the path following the rocky coastline of the Monterey Bay Santuary.  Runners are loving the splash against their face, arms and legs.  The winds have been perfect for sailing.

Antiques may be inanimate objects, but they tell some great stories.  For five generations each  piece at the Martine Inn had been very special to somebody.  As the objects were passed from person to person they were cherished, cared for, protected from fire, flood, war, disrepair, and the dump.  One cannot help but feel priveleged just to see and use these precious items.  A candlewick trimmer, for instance, tells us how important candlelight was to prior generations.  If the wick was too long, the candle would burn too fast.  Candles were handmade in the autumn, when the...
