Ashland Dog Park

We are so close to being back in California, but the boys need some off-leash time, and I look for a dog park. Ashland has one and once we have the morning chores accomplished: Potty walk for the boys, coffee made for me,  breakfast for The Chiweenie Brothers, MissAdventure tidied and things in place for travel, we head out.  The park is just up the road. It’s an interesting roundabout way to get to it, but we finally arrive.  The boys have a ball.



After the boys have a good long romp in this park, we head south stopping once at another rest area inside California for a short break before heading on.

After a couple hours drive we are here—Hello Redding!—Negotiating traffic and eagerly looking forward to seeing everyone,  I pull MissAdventure into my sister’s driveway and head to her door. So good to see her!

My brother-n-law is not the man I have known my whole life. In the year I have been gone dementia has set it. He doesn’t know who I am. He doesn’t know who his kids are. To him we are “That Girl” or “That Guy”. Heartbreaking. My sister has her own health problems, but no dementia thank God.

Home base is under a nice shade tree in Sis’s side yard, and I will make small journeys in the area to see my sons, grandchildren, and friends, and try to remember the layout of town! How sweet it is.

And this is where I leave you for a few weeks, taking a break from blogging as the boys and I enjoy our time here reconnecting with family and friends.

THANK YOU for coming along on our travels, and we will “see” you sometime in November when we head to our wintering grounds in Arizona.

Hugs, Shawna, Fries, and Charlie B

Hello! Welcome to my blog. I am a full-time traveler, retired from a lifetime of different occupations, traveling the country with my two little dogs, Fries and Charlie B; The Chiweenie Brothers. You never know where you might find us, but if you do stop by and say hi . . . If you can get past the two best watch dogs in the universe! Happy Trails!

  1. I have loved being on this adventure with you. Enjoy your time with family. Nice you have a place to stay so you can keep the boys living as usual. I look forward to tagging along on your next adventure with you while being safe in our ordinary.

  2. Welcome back! Have so enjoyed reading about your adventures. (Not sure how the “boys” are going to feel about staying in one place for more than a day or two. They have become quite the travelers!) Any plans to head over our way? Would love to see you for lunch at one of our fine eating establishments! 😂 Give me a heads up and I will try to get a few of the girls together.


  3. Have a wonderful time visiting with your friends and family. I have learned so much from you about camping and traveling with the boys. Enjoy your time and I will look foreword to Arizona.


  4. Like the other commenters, I have thoroughly enjoyed “seeing” so many interesting and wonderful new places through your eyes. Thank you for the wealth of information you’ve shared; I’m more determined than ever to search out the boondocking campsites thanks to the confidence you’ve inspired. I hope you and the boys enjoy your time catching up with family and friends! Right now it doesn’t seem like it’s ever going to turn to Winter here, so I hope you can have fun during our prolonged Indian Summer without worrying about having to travel through snow to get back to your southwestern getaway.
