Carmel-by-the-sea May, 2019

Last month, we took Kargo the dog to lovely Carmel-by-the-sea for our usual spring getaway. It was a little bit rainy off and on, but we still got some good beach time.

Our visits always include a day of hiking in Garland Ranch in Carmel Valley. We managed to hike in the morning when the rain stopped for a couple of hours.

And of course, there's always socializing with other pups at the Cypress Inn. The two corgies are Jackie and Bobby.

The late great Doris Day had just passed away shortly before our visit, so there was a small memorial of flowers in front of the Cypress Inn which she had co-owned.

Snow time!

We took Kargo with us to Truckee, CA, last weekend to give her some first-time snow exposure. She had a grand time hiking on the Castle Peak Trail. This next photo shows her sitting at the ridge at Castle Pass.

This next photo shows her hanging with her new friend Uma at Moody's in Truckee while we enjoyed our meal on their patio.

A Walk in Golden Gate Park

We've been having great weather in the SF bay area lately, so it was a good time to take Kargo the Dog for a longish walk through San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. The second photo shows her meeting up with a Dutch shepherd named Roxy. The last photo is overlooking the casting pond.

Carmel Trip

We spent the last weekend in lovely Carmel-by-the-sea and Kargo had a great time, as she always does. I didn't take many photos this time, but I did capture this great shot of Kargo on the beach standing by this interesting seaweed beach sculpture.

Kargo and the souvenir toy

Here's a nice photo of Kargo posed in a lady-like way next to one of her favorite squeaky toys, which is a pig that sounds like a duck. We bought the toy as a souvenir from our recent trip to Iceland, but it's from a Danish doodad company called Flying Tiger. We named the toy "LiLou" after the San Francisco "celebriswine" LiLou The Pig.

Spring Carmel-by-the-Sea Visit

Last weekend, we took Kargo along for our spring weekend trip to Carmel-by-the-sea. The most exciting time for us, and for Kargo, was the deer encounter in Pacific Grove. The deer kept approaching to get closer and closer but we were too afraid to let them actually meet nose to nose. The deer followed us along for a couple of blocks before giving up after stopping traffic a bit. It turns out that deer are quite common in the city streets there.

Here we are on our hike in Garland Ranch, overlooking one of the views. This is a great place for off-leash hiking. Unfortunately, she did pick up a tick from that hike, but we have the great Tick Twister tool for removing ticks.

And of course, a trip to Carmel must include a trip or two to the beach.
