I met Mimi’s horse, Lucy for the first time today. When we arrived in Santa Barbara, we went straight to the Earl Warren Show Grounds. Mimi had a lesson on Lucy, and then Mimi/Kiki and I went on an adventure around the town.
We said hello. It was either this... or sniffing her butt.
Before Mimi got on for her lesson, she let me hop on! SO HIGH UP!
This one was more my size.
After Mimi's lesson, we headed out to State Street in Downtown Santa Barbara. I made a friend - his name was ALSO Bunny!
Santa Barbara Marina.
While walking around the docks, we saw the fishermen pulling in their catch - Sea Urchins! Some guy picked one up, cracked it open, and slurped all the goop out. YEHCK!
We walked along the beach near the marina... I failed to see the warning.
“Velkommen!” Mimi, Kiki, and I hit the road this morning for a horse show in Santa Barbara. We stopped along the way in Solvang, which is the first established Danish community in America. My Great Grandmother, Aggie Poulsen, was from Denmark. I’d like to share my Danish experience with you!
The most delicious bakery.
Checkin' out all the goods inside.
Here I am on Copenhagen Street. Granny Aggie would be so happy.
An authentic windmill!
The town Mayor gave me these sweet kicks. Clogs are all the rage.
This is my friend, Olaf.
The whole town made me an honorary Dane for the day. "Goddag!"
I get to go back to Tahoe! Yesssss. Can’t believe it’s been a year since my last visit. I made the long 14 hour drive once again, with Mimi and her Mommy. We broke the drive up a bit by spending a night in Palm Springs, California. It’s about 4 hours from Scottsdale, so it wasn’t that far for us. We spent the day shopping, eating, and bonding (with dinosaurs).
I thought you were dead?!
She sure was pretty.
She let me give her a foot rub.
I leave them in peace.
We were almost to the cabin... and to our surprise, when we came over Mt. Rose, this is what we saw! So much snow!
So we began… our long, 14 hour drive from Phoenix, Arizona to Lake Tahoe, California. The best part of the drive was the long stretch up 395 – there were so many photo opportunities! I have never seen such large mountains before, the sites were beautiful! Here are a few of the things I saw along the way.
In Lone Pine, Smokey told me that only I could prevent forest fires... can you find me?
Here I am on the backside of Kings Canyon National Park.
Mommy let me drive to Bishop.
I rode a pony at Schat's Bakery in Bishop. Best turkey sandwiches in the West!
I was an honorary ranger in Bridgeport. Almost to the lake!
Finally! We arrived at the cabin around 9pm... it was way past my bedtime.
