Wellwoof, you can but it would take all day!

The folks planned a hike on Sunnyday in Big Sur which is about 2 hours south of Santy Cruz. The dadders planned where to park and which trail to hike. The ma made sandwiches and packed sum other goodies fur lunch. The one thing they weren't ready fur was the road bein' closed in Carmel for the Big Sur Marathon! The folks asked a Peaceman if there was a detour around so they could continue down to Big Sur. The Peaceman smiled and said Highway 1 (aka Pacific Coast Highway) was closed from Big Sur to Carmel. No detour around this thing!

The nice Peaceman suggested we head up Carmel Valley Road to Garland Park in Carmel Valley. He said it was dog friendly and a nice place to hike. The folks had never heard of the place but figured it was better than goin' home or drivin' all day.

So we found Garland Park and maybe did not hike quite as long as we would have in Big Sur but still had a great time. I met a doggy furiend and taught her how to swim. Wellwoof, more like motivated her to swim fur the furst time. Her peoples were pretty happy about that!

So we ended up hikin' sumwheres the folks never woulda thought of as an intended destination but it was nice and we still have Big Sur to look forward to laters!

Sounds like the detour worked out very nicely.

One thing I know, you'd never get me to swim. No way, Pepper.

Thanks, pups!

BOL, Riley, you doesn't like to swim?! The pup I met liked the water's edge and gettin' wet but not actually swimmin. But she wanted to play with me and I keep goin' in deeper. So she hadta follow!

Funny how that happens. I think the best adventures and picnic places we found as kids were when the folks went "the country way" Fond memories !

Count me out of the swimming lessons...I am like Riley! BOL!
Sometimes when the doors are closed unexpectedly, its because there is one open that you didn't know was even there! Now you have one more pawlace to add to your list of good pawlaces to hike/swim/play!

Picnics and hikes sound wonderfur!
