Carmel Vacation – 17-Mile Drive

This is the second post of our Carmel California vacation and shows pictures of 17-Mile Drive at Pebble Beach. The very scenic drive takes you through the Del Monte Forest and Pacific coastline and we stopped several times to take it all in. In addition to the great views there is a lot of different wildlife along the drive and the number of sea lions on the rocks is pretty impressive. There are a lot of golf courses along the drive ...

Carmel Vacation – House and Carmel Beach

This is the first post in a series of vacation pictures from Carmel California. I've been busy with work and home projects so I've been slow to post-process them.

Good looking doggies!

Duncan is 13 years old now and looks great for his age...and still acts like he's 2. Peyton is almost 2, and although more obedient than Duncan has ever been, still has her teenage moments.

This evening's overcast sky gave some good light to snap some pics in the small timeframe while they are clean.     Read more

Platte River State Park Cabin

For Susie's birthday weekend we stayed in a cabin at Platte River State Park. We had a nice snowstorm a few days before which made the park scenic and the dogs really enjoyed running through the snow. We burned a lot of firewood and relaxed - which is what Susie wanted. Read more
