Good Morning!


Good morning everyone!

Just thought I’d start your day off with a photo of a lovely Saguaro forest that I shot in January. I didn’t get around to editing all my photos from our trip to New Mexico, and thought I would share this one with you today.

As usual, I’ve got the Dos Doodles, and we are out doing something fun this weekend. It may or may not be something new…but for sure it will be a good time!

We are getting together with another Doodle relative, so we should get some fun pictures out of it!

Check back in with us later…and if you need something to do in the meantime:




Doodles Breakfast in San Clemente

[singlepic id=789 w=320 h=240 float=left]It’s hard to decide whether it’s more fun to go to new places or to go back to places we’ve already been. On one hand, it’s fun to have an adventure, see something new and experience a place and people we haven’t before. Of course, then there’s the learning curve. But that’s part of the adventure! And then, we have found such great places to eat, socialize and exercise, that it’s a pleasure to continue to go there—hiking trails, the beaches, restaurants…

[singlepic id=791 w=400 h=240 float=right]I’m not sure that our last outing qualifies as an adventure in the strictest sense of the word. I mean, we really only had breakfast by the beach in San Clemente. But still! We decided to go to the Beach Garden Cafe, since we hadn’t been there before today. Good coffee, good food, nice people…so we had a great time! As usual. The Doodles were a hit. As usual! Continue reading

In Search of Friendly Folk…

[singlepic id=721 w=300 h=300 float=left]Part of the quest on which we’ve embarked is to find, experience and share the great places we get to go with the doods. Oh, and take pictures, too! We always love to do that.

When we are figuring out where to go on our next adventure, we do what anyone else would do: we Google “dog friendly” and then see what we can come up with. Or we rely on word-of-mouth for recommendations. We did a combination of both for the fun day we had yesterday in Long Beach. Continue reading

Thanksgiving Saturday Photos

[singlepic id=620 w=320 h=240 float=left]We have to hit the road early tomorrow. No time for messing around!

Again, a busy and fun day that we started with playtime on the beach, making new friends! A few pictures of today’s romp on the beach at Carmel.

Tomorrow…the road. Hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable weekend!

Thanksgiving Friday Photos

[singlepic id=613 w=320 h=240 float=left]Such a fun and busy day in Carmel. Too much going on to write much about it. Suffice it to say that there was lots of beach time in the morning, followed by a delicious lunch at a restaurant with the worst service ever! Thank goodness for the dogs to keep us amused! Then a serious vacation-style nap (hours and hours!) and then a fabulous dinner. Finally, a late night walk on the beach. Great day. A few pictures in no particular order prove it was a good day!

Thanksgiving in Carmel: Thursday

[singlepic id=590 w=320 h=240 float=left] We piled the truck full of our stuff and the Doods and made our way out of town. We settled in for a nice drive up to Carmel with Sam and Luke in the back seat. I even dressed the guys up in special traveling gear… Continue reading
