My new website! If you know anyone that needs a dog walker, pet sitting, wants a custom art piece of their pets, or needs any other pet related services in the Santa Barbara area, I’m your girl!
Thank you Casey for all your hard work helping me set this up.
You are the best!
Today we took Derby on a hike to socialize him. We went up the Romero Cyn. Trail and he had a great time. He even met Penny, Sadie, and Mandy 🙂
This is a dog that you would want to clone. He is so well behaved, friendly, and the softest dog I have ever felt. I have been watching him this past week while his owners went back east. I hope they go on another trip soon so I can watch him again 🙂
That morning we said goodbye to Lee Vining and started our journey home. I had never been to Yosemite before, so we drove through on our way out.
Goldie did great winding through the mountains when she was fully loaded.
After making our way out of Yosemite, we made one last stop at Casey’s beloved Del Taco before arriving safely back in SB. What a great trip!
We started the day with a visit from Casey’s great Uncle Augie. He plays golf all the time and showed off his new hole in one trophy. Can you believe he is 98?! Amazing! He seriously looks so much younger.

Then Casey’s grandparents and I hopped in the truck and drove up a mountain ahead of Casey on his mountain bike. It was a very steep climb, but Casey powered up.
That is Mono Lake in the background.
He made it to the top!

That evening we went down to visit Mono Lake and take pics of the tufa.
Just when we were leaving the lake, this owl landed near us!
After a hearty breakfast of bacon, eggs, sausage, and toast, we headed over to Mammoth with Casey’s grandparents and checked out some ski shops and explored the town.
Penny loved hanging out in the yard
Casey and I started the day with a 22 mile bike ride up into the mountains. Our destination was beautiful Walker Lake, nestled among the aspen and pine trees.
How pretty is this view?!
Later that night we played Phase 10, watched the Giants win the World Series, ate steak and potatoes by the fire, and just when we were falling asleep in bed, we heard a thud right outside our window. We looked outside only to see . . .
This cub was climbing the apple tree and shaking the branches to make the apples fall. Then he would climb down and have a feast!
The weather was great on our first day in Lee Vining-not too hot and not too cold. After a homemade french toast breakfast, we headed out with Casey’s grandparents in their old forest service truck and explored the wilderness.
Let the scoofin’ begin!
Up on Tioga Pass
Neat rocks in the cliff
We saw our first wild bald eagle!
Penny loved the snow
The aspen trees were so pretty!
