These next two photos are from the beach, and the big annual sand castle contest day was happening on that same Saturday.
We always take a hike in Garland Ranch, and here's Kargo on the trail.
This next photo shows Kargo's new best friend, Patch the cardigan corgi. Our home in San Francisco needed a new fence adjoining one of our neighboring houses. These neighbors also own two corgis, Patch and Pepper, and they would bark in frustration if they heard Kargo in the yard and could not play with her. So, when the fence needed replacing, we added a gate so the dogs can play. I haven't gotten a photo of all three dogs together yet, but here's Patch and Kargo enjoying each other's company!

Moonstone Beach Boardwalk in Cambria, and here's where the amazing Kargo memory comes in. We last visited Cambria in 2015, when Kargo was just a year old. It's documented here. For that visit, we stayed at one of the hotels along the road parallel to the boardwalk. The hotels are on the opposite of the road from the boardwalk so there are many turnouts on the walk where humans and dogs can leave to cross the road to their hotels. This time around, we didn't stay in Cambria but drove over from Paso Robles for a day trip. We decided to walk the boardwalk to see if Kargo would remember it at all. Sure enough, when we reached the turnout to the hotel where we once stayed, Kargo wanted to veer off and cross the road! We were amazed, because she was last there seven (seven!!) years ago. Kargo has always had a great memory for places and how to return to hotels from walking around towns we visit, but we were amazed her memory stuck for so long.
So, to end the trip, we had to visit Carmel-by-the-sea, and here's the required photo on the beach. I'mn not sure how I captured a photo without other humans or dogs, since the beach was quite crowded!

And of course, Kargo loves the beach and also walking along Scenic Road, as seen here.
We did check out a new shop for doggies -- the Carmel Dog Shop. It's got lots of fun treats and toys and very friendly owners. It's also conveniently located very close to the dog-friendly Cypress Inn.
