Just A Few Of My Favorite Things...

San Diego Metro KOA
Chula Vista, CA
December 7, 2015

So here we are in this beautiful part of our country I love calling home for a few months. It's been a week already. The weather has been absolutely beautiful. Sitting on the patio enjoying the birds or reading, playing with the pups at the doggie park here, planting violas, photographing exotic flowers, and washing and servicing our bikes are just a few things that have filled our time. 


Our site #2110...

Violas put a smile on my face...

Bikes are clean...

and serviced.




Something definitely caught Sally's attention under the bench the other day at the doggie park. Now she races that way every time we go...





...and Dover will try anything...at least once! 


 It would be an understatement to say Jack LOVES his ball. This week Joe decided to play hide and seek with him. It was quite funny watching him find the ball and then figure out how to get it...

















The bird feeders are filled. The hummingbirds came first. This morning I saw a Verdin at the hummer feeder so I guess I will be adding some orange halves.

Today was beach play day. With the temps nearing 80 degrees and blue skies, why not? It's 11 miles to the absolutely best doggie beach EVER! Our choice is Coronado Dog Beach. It is no-leash, spacious, and clean...a dog lover's paradise! Parking is along Ocean Boulevard just before the entrance to the Navy Base. 

Joe, Sally, Jack and Dover






Today was the first time Sally has been off-leash at the beach. She ran and played chase with Dover.

The water was a little chilly!
Dover has always loved the water and the beach...





Jack retrieves his ball with the Hotel del Coronado in the background...









He wasn't still long enough for any close-up photos today!








Our two months here is off and running. 
Until next time, let the good times roll...




HAPPY TRAILS!

  1. :-) We have also been working on our bikes, mine tuned up and Hans got a new one. The dogs look like they are having a blast!

    We need to figure out a good time to meet up...perhaps in January after the holidays and once we have moved to Mission Bay (after January 3rd).

  5. Few things are more delightful than dogs having fun on a beach! Love Sally's solution for the chilly water on her feet :-) We've had stellar weather in AZ this week as well - although Tessa would much rather play on the beach than in the desert.

    1. I so agree Jodee...the beach is a perfect playground! I LOVE the desert, but find its not as doggie friendly with the prickly cacti and rattlesnakes.

  6. Emma is becoming as obsessed as Jack with her ball too. Thanks for the input on the ChuckIt! It worked.

  7. Tell the crew that Tucker is jealous. As are we. The beaches in southern Alabama are not dog friendly.
