The Windy Bunny.

It’s been a while since my last adventure, but boy am I looking forward to this one. I’m here visiting my friends in Winnetka, Illinois, which is just outside of Chicago. Mimi use to nanny for the three kids who live there now… they are still close friends, and they were nice enough to invite both of us out for a visit! Here are some of the things I did the first couple days.

I took this picture of Mimi and my new friends - Mayree and Carter.

They took me to see The Bean!

A view from the top of the Sears Tower.

This is the new glass ledge on the Sears Tower, where you can walk out, and look allllll the way down.

Mimi dared me to do it.

The Chicago Water Tower.

Home again, home again.

Soon, it was time for me to go home. I really enjoyed all of my travels on this trip to California, Oregon, and Washington. For now, it’s back to Arizona, where I will be awaiting my next adventure.

We went over Mt. Rose to get to the airport in Reno.

I haven't been on a plane since my very first flight to America from China.

Buckled up, and ready to go.

Home again, home again.

Eagle Lake.

The next day, I went for a hike with Mimi across from Emerald Bay at Eagle Falls, and on up we went to Eagle Lake.

I'm reading the information at the Eagle Falls Trailhead.

I met another friend. His name was Lizard.

Eagle Falls!

Almost to Eagle Lake. From here I could see Emerald Bay.

Ta-Dah! I made it!

We were pooped.

A Bunny’s Fanny.

I’ve had a few days to catch up on some sleep. Mommy has taken me around the lake to see  and do lots of different things.

I went to my very first garage sale.

Saw Squaw Valley, where the 1960 Olympic Winter Games were held.

I met Tahoe Tessie, who lives under Cave Rock at the lake.

This is where water gets let out from the lake into the Truckee River. Can you see me?

They call this Fanny Bridge. Do you know why?

I know Mommy loves me. She held my hand.

Uncle Rich.

We said our goodbyes to Benny this morning, and headed back into Oregon, to visit my Mommy’s Uncle Rich in Eugene. We spent one night there to break up the driving time, and then headed back on down to the cabin.

Uncle Rich's house was really neat.

A really pretty railroad to near Uncle RIch's house.

I had to make a pit stop on the way back to the cabin.

My Mommy says always use a seat cover.

Sampled a few cherries in Grass Valley. Almost back to the lake!

We arrived at the cabin around 6pm... went straight to bed. I was so tired from all of my adventures, but wanted to catch up on my latest read.

Public Market.

Day two in Seattle was really exciting. I made lots of new friends around the city, and even went on stage at a concert downtown.

These are a few of the new friends I made. The green one didn't speak English too well.

Jaws took me for a ride.

At the Pike Place Market.

I saw hundreds of flowers bundled up for sale.

I made even MORE friends at a honey stand. Can't wait to tell Bear that I met his distant cousins.

This is me with one of the fishmongers who throws the fish around to entertain the customers...

... he fed me to the crabs! Not so funny for Bunny.

I learned how to make cheese curds.

I saw Trombone Shorty play.

This was the best part of my day... the whole band invited me up on stage!

I went home with some delicious goodies.

On the road… again.

“On the road again 
Just can’t wait to get on the road again.
Goin’ places that I’ve never been.
Seein’ things that I may never see againAnd I can’t wait to get on the road again.
On the road again – Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway
We’re the best of friends.
Insisting that the world keep turning our wayAnd our way is on the road again.
Just can’t wait to get on the road again.
The life I love is makin’ music with my friends
And I can’t wait to get on the road again”.

– Willie Nelson
So here I go, on the road again. After two nights at Nanna’s, we packed up and headed North up the coast to visit my Mommy’s brother, Benny in Seattle.

When we arrived in Seattle, Ben took us to the Ballard Locks.

These locks move boats from Puget Sound to the water level of the lakes, and vice versa.

At the locks, there was a fish ladder, which allows salmon to pass between fresh water and salt water.

After the locks, we went to a fish bar in Ballard called Rays.

Ben almost ate ME instead of the fish!

We had a really pretty view from where we ate.

Leaving so soon?

After five days at the cabin, I left for the ten hour drive to Florence, Oregon to visit Nanna. Nanna is my Mommy’s Grandmother… the drive up was purdy!

I had my very own seat in the front with Mommy and her Daddy.

When I was a good bunny, I got to drive.

On the way, we stopped at a farmers market in Red Bluff... does no pets mean no bunnies?

I sampled this really yummy blueberry balsamic vinaigrette... different, but soo good.

Made another friend named Goat. She was nice.

Mt. Shasta was HUGE.

So close to Nanna's, but Mommy and I took a break from driving and stopped at the Umpqua River.
