Hi Everyone, we survived the great road trip to California! It was a whirlwind of a week, but Dorothee and Champi are now set up in our new apartment in Pacifica. The new place is still a bit empty since we are still trying to sell our house in Dallas. Because of this, we only packed the essentials, which included all the dog stuff, of course! Our trip took us through some nice little towns along the way. And thanks to Champi, we did take a little time to stop here and there to stretch our legs. This was a good thing because it is always a good idea to take a break when doing long car trips. Champi did very well. She is an excellent passenger, well, as long as we had the AC cranked up. It was kind of a comical situation. We felt like we had to freeze ourselves in the front seat to keep our furry pup happy in the back. All things considered, it worked out really well. This photo below was taken on Champi’s first experience with the beach. And after a little bit of hesitation, she began to play in the sand immediately. The ebb and flow of the surf definitely grabbed her curiosity, as she would bite at it with every new wave. And as expected, she naturally ran away from the water every time it crossed her ankles. It was a fun puppy moment. =)
Our road trip took us 3 full days of driving, but we made pretty good time. I took photos at just about every place we stopped so I will post some of them. We made it all the way to Albuquerque the first night. Other little stops along the way included Santa Rosa, Gallop, Flagstaff, and Barstow. So stay tuned for some more travel photos!
And as always, you can check out more photos at my photostream jayaxe04. Enjoy!
