Happy 4th Of July!
We stopped to spend some time at the beach. I loved watching the kids. Wonder how they are able to play in that cold water.
Also on this trip, I succeeded in my quest to find just the right bench. We found a bunch of them until I finally saw this one that was just the right size. You can click on the picture to make it bigger.
This is the best garden ever. It has this awesome flower bed. And it has a window with a waterfall so it looks like it is raining. It's like a outdoor bedroom complete with a side table, alarm clock and set of drawers.
There is even a chair near the bed. And everything is covered with flowers. Click on the thumbnail for a better look!
Here I am in a cactus garden. I feel so tall on my perch.
They have HUGE cacti here!
I made a wish at this wishing well. I hope it comes true.
I really liked this little house.
I even tried to figure out how it worked. The wheel kept turning and there was water flowing through. Neat-o!
There were other houses there too and they were covered with flowers.
Another thing I like about being out and about is getting to dine out. I get to sit at the table like the humans. Teehee! People at other tables smile at me and at dinner a bunch of kids came over to give me pats and talk to me. Sometimes, I sleep on my seat so Mommie thinks no one can see me but somehow they still do and come to say hello.
This one place we ate at even had this outdoor fireplace. So cool! The floor is curved so it looks like I am floating.
This is the cutest carwash I've ever seen!
While we were driving along the coast, we saw these elephant seals. They were sunbathing and did not move much.
But we were able to get this video of one of them moving.
We also stopped by a winery on the way home. It looks like a castle! There were tons of people there.
This castle even has a moat!
And tons of American Flags. So apt for July 4th!
There was a wedding so no one was allowed to go in through the front door. A lady from the winery showed us an alternative entrace to get to the tasting room. I got lots of pats from the people there while they were tasting stuff. Mommie does not drink wine so she just walked around the room with me.
I also posed by some of the grapevines. Mommie did not want me to sit too close coz there were lots of foxtails there. She said those were dangerous plants so I should not go near them.
On the ride home, I was so sleepy but I could not help smiling coz I was so happy to go on such a great trip.
Here are a few pics of me with another Eskie doll that Mommie made.
