My Winter Getaway

My blog has been quiet lately but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been up to much!  I’m hoping to be able to fill you in now that Liz has a little more time to spend helping me out with my blogging again.

This winter, when Noah was about a month old, I went on a mini-vacation to Palm Springs.  Here I am with my traveling companion, Ken.  He is Liz’s father-in-law and we have many memories of good times together when I lived in England.  I used to snuggle up with him in front of the fire, chase his cats…ah, those were some wonderful times!

Once in the car, I ride shotgun, of course:

I like to get settled in and comfortable.  Luckily Ken is very obliging:

At rest stops, I get in the driver’s seat to keep an eye on things:

And here I am at our lodgings, the Caliente Tropics Resort.

They allow dogs there, so it was a great choice.  Liz says the rooms are ok, and the pool was very nice.  I spent most of my time just sleeping in the a/c, and venturing out for walks once night fell.  It is very warm in Palm Springs, you know.

On our way back home, we drove through the Anza-Borrego desert.  Here I am in Borrego Springs.  Everyone else had lunch; all I got was a potty break!

It was wildflower season and we wanted to have a look at the flowers in bloom.  I don’t see any!  Oh wait, is that one under my paw?

That’s about all we found.  A slight disappointment, but still it was a beautiful place:

On our way home, we stopped for a treat in the mountain town of Julian:

Is that an apple pie I smell in there??  Yum!


Playing with Noah

Well, baby Noah has been keeping us busy!  I can’t believe he is 6 months old now.  We are well on our way to being bffs though:

Good times!
