TT - BFF Reunion Part Deux!

Mini Dory here again this week with Mama and her BFF to show you some more of the fun things we did!!



One afternoon we went to Napa Valley and the peeps did some wine tasting!






We walked around Mama's favorite winery, St. Supery....







...and all the peeps tasted some wine while we enjoyed some relaxation and catching up on the pretty terrace!



We capped the evening off with a very nice dinner! All the peeps had MORE wine, while my new friend Ninertroll and I played on a nice mini jungle gym they had at the table!




One morning we got up early and made a drive down to the Carmel/Monterey, CA area! BFF wanted to see the 17 Mile Drive...well let me tell you, that is one LONG drive when you have to stop 87 million times for Mama to take pictures!!



Some famous golf course called Pebble Beach runs all along the 
87 mile drive.



Mama had to stop and take pictures of all the wildlife! Here I am with some Cormorants and their little ones!



There were sea doggies everywhere...



...Mama even saw some horsies riding along the rocky shore!! 
Here I am catching a ride with them!



This gull thought I might have brought him some of my bready turtle, but I told him the sign said I wasn't allowed to feed him or any other animal in the park. In fact, Mama had smoke coming out of her ears 'cause people were feeding the birds and squirrels all kinds of things...



OMD...MAMA!! You were NOT suppose to show people this picture!!! Mama MADE me stand next to this rock rat!


Moving right along...after the 87 mile drive, we spent some time walking around the quaint small town of Carmel!
As you can see, it is right next to the water!



We had a nice Italian supper while we were visiting...




...and I spent some quality time with my friend K!


It was starting to get late, so we made a brief stop in Monterrey...

 
...to watch the sun go down on another fun day!

Make sure to join me next week on Travel Tuesday when we head out on a fun boat ride back in San Francisco!!

Looks like a fun little trip. The coast is really beautiful. My mom has been to some of those towns way back when. Not sure we will ever go because it is a long drive from our house. Thanks for the tour.

That brings back some memories for my Mom. She used to fly into Monterey from San Francisco all the time. Those flights were short but always so short the Flight Attendant couldn't eve serve drinks. One day, the flight was oversold and they were asking for volunteers to give up their seat for a $400 travel voucher (a lot back then) and of course "positive space seat on the next flight". This woman stands up and very loudly says "What if the next flight is to some place I don't want to go!".

Yup, you can't make this stuff up, Mom says.
