Carmel by-the-sea

We recently took a short trip to lovely Carmel by-the-sea, and of course Kargo came along because Carmel is super dog friendly. The first photo shows her on our walk along Scenic Rd. overlooking the blue Pacific ocean. This next photo shows her posing on the beach.

While strolling through the town, I spotted this lovely macaw that just spends its time perched outside its owner's shop watching the world go by, eating, and uttering the occasional loud squawk.

Kargo on the SFMuni!

News Flash! Kargo recently took her first SFMuni ride! Last weekend, we walked to ocean beach and then took the SFMuni for the return trip. We decided it was time for Kargo to learn to ride on public transport. She did quite well. We were worried that she wouldn't want to get on the bus, but that was not an issue. At first, she hid under the long seats, but after a short while, she stuck her head out a bit more.

Morning Walk

Kargo loves her morning walks around the neighborhood. I captured this photo not too long ago on one of the walks.

Happy Holidays

Kargo the Dog wishes you all a happy holiday season!

She also had her second adoptiversary earlier in December. I think she has had a great two years with us, and we with her.

Nice morning for a hike

It may be December, but this morning was beautiful and crisp and we took Kargo for a short hike in the Arastradero Preserve. Here is a nice view of the dog and the preserve.

Carmel-by-the-Sea, September 2016 edition

Last week, we took Kargo along to Carmel for our usual fall visit. The weather was gorgeous and almost too warm. We first stopped off for lunch in Pacific Grove. Here's Kargo in front of Lovers Point Park.

The next day, we did our usual hiking in Garland Ranch Regional Park, where Kargo got to enjoy off-leashing hoofing.

We enjoyed some lunch at the Corkscrew Cafe, which has a dog-friendly patio.

On Monday morning, we strolled Carmel beach. There were lots of other people and dogs around, but for some reason, the beach looks deserted in this photo.

This weekend in Carmel included Poodle Day, so Carmel was awash in poodles. This was fine with Kargo, since she loves poodles. Here's Rocco, a fellow hotel guest, with his "hair pants" haircut.

Glamping in Guerneville

We just returned from a "glamping" trip with Kargo. We went to Guerneville, CA and stayed at this Airstream campsite run by Autocamp. Here's what the campsite looks like.

The trailers are comfortably outfitted with Casper mattresses and relatively large showers. We found a spot by the door for Kargo's bed and she slept well.

One of the activities was hiking in Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. Here's Kargo posing in front of one of the oldest redwood trees.

We also did a bit of wine tasting. One winery we visited was the dog-friendly Thomas George Estates.Here's a photo of their picnic area and entrance into the cave where the tasting was held that day.
