Settling In

San Diego Metro KOA
Chula Vista, CA
January 6, 2017


Our puppies are beginning to settle into a new routine and time zone.  Jack has been very insistent that 4:00 pm is dinner time, but he isn't winning that battle.  He actually had dinner at 5:10 yesterday and slept until 7:00 am this morning...yipee!



The KOA here is one of our favorite places to stay.  The park is full of lush, green grass, tall trees...mostly eucalyptus trees with beautiful white/gray smooth bark, and a wonderful variety of colorful flowers.








After a very rainy and chilly day Thursday, we woke up to sunshine and warmer weather on Friday.  It wasn't hard to figure out what to do...the doggie beach was calling and we went !  Coronado Dog Beach is our favorite doggie beach EVER !  It's big and it's clean.  There are always pups and people there, but it never seems crowded and Jack can play ball with very little interference from other pups.  Running and fetching is exactly how he spent the morning...


Even Sally was feeling frisky.  

 
Dover is the only one of our pups who actually enjoys the water.  First thing, she heads straight for the waves. 









 


We saw quite a few sand dollars.  The wet sand looked like it had gold glitter in it.  We have never noticed that before.  Any ideas as to what it might be?

 It's always a pretty view looking back at Hotel del Coronado...


and seeing Point Loma.
I LOVE doggie beach day.  Other than the tide pools, it's my favorite thing to do in San Diego.

Until next time,




HAPPY TRAILS !

    1. Sally was feeling especially energetic at the beach. What a hoot it was watching her. And Jack was non stop.....he even asked total strangers to throw the ball! The KOA has a good monthly rate. Of course we miss those gorgeous sunsets you get at Mission Bay.

    1. January in San Diego is a nice change from the desert...but the desert is still my favorite! I'm always excited to return to the arid climate!

  6. Ah, happy pups, happy humans!

    We'll work on finding a good time for a lunch meetup before we leave SD. We're at Mission bay till 2/3, then we spend a couple of nights at Sweetwater before we leave the area.
