We escaped!

Gammy and I escaped the Midwest and went to visit friends in Southern California these past two weeks!  While it was snowing another 6" in St. Louis we "suffered" with 70 degree sunshine!  Here I am with Babe down in Long Beach.

We also got to spend a couple of days in Palm Springs and Palm Desert.  The sign says Dinah Shore Drive in case you can't make it out.  We also crossed over Bob Hope Drive and Frank Sinatra Blvd!  How cool is that!!!

Down at Balboa Island (Newport Beach area) the boats have to be wrapped in plastic snow netting to keep the sea lions off their boats.  So many climb on they have actually sank a couple of boats!!!

And they're off!!  I can't begin to describe how beautiful Santa Anita Race Track is!


That's a picture of a Huntington Beach volley ball court where May and Trainer qualified and practiced for their Olympic Gold medals!!

And of course we had to see the iconic Rose Bowl in Pasedena where the Big 10 used to play in the annual Rose Bowl football game!

We had a great time and even ran into a couple of pugs along the way but I was too busy hugging and butt scritching them to take their picture!   
Here's the lovely Gammy with her trusty sidekick (that would be me) in the most beautiful Palm Desert resort!  St. Louis winter, eat your heart out!
