I used to go to Carmel (California) to heal and rejuvenate when I was a physicist. Carmel is my second favorite place the first being the Stanford campus. Alas, I live far from these places and get rare opportunities to visit.
My Carmel visit in March of 2005 was a significant turning point in my life. This time I was licking my wounds from a major defeat in my business career. I stayed in Carmel alone for one week and did a lot of thinking. During that week I also visited Pebble Beach, Monterey, Pacific Grove and Big Sur and concluded the trip by visiting the Stanford campus.
The idea of creating a blog site occurred to me while I was in Carmel in March of 2005. At that time I did not know about the blogging platforms. I was thinking in terms of creating my own web site. The idea germinated and became reality starting in 2010. The banner picture of sureshemre.wordpress.com shows a corner of Carmel.
In March 2005 I was very lucky to witness a rare Pacific phenomenon. The surf was unusually high during that week as some of the photographs below show it.
