Camp Rita

It's been an exciting couple of days. Dad smuggled me over to Catalina Island on the Express ferry and we spent the night in a room at Avalon. The next morning we did some hiking and took a bus to meet Uncle Adam and cousin Jasmine. We'd originally planned to sail to Santa Barbara but because it took longer than expected to meet up with them, we sailed Camp Rita to Newport instead. This morning, my mom came to pick up dad and the five of us got to visit for a while. Here's a pic of dad rowing me to shore to meet mom. I could hardly wait to get my paws on her!

I spent as long as I could cuddling with my mom, since I know we won't be able to cuddle again for a while. 

This is my territory...

...but sometimes I like to trespass on Jasmine's territory.

And here's cousin Jazz...

I was sad to see my parents go, but I'm excited for 2+ weeks of Salty Dog training. 
Ahoy, mateys! See you in a few weeks!

Bon Voyage

Hi All,
My grandparents sent me this bling-bling sailor dress just in the knick of time... I left this morning to go on a 20 day sailing adventure with Uncle Adam and cousin Jasmine. Mom brought Dad & I up to Dana Point this morning where we caught the Catalina Express ferry to Catalina Island. There we are going to meet Uncle Adam & Jasmine and the 4 of us will sail to Santa Barbara together. Then Dad will head back to San Diego and I will be spending the next couple of weeks sailing and exploring with my extended family. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I know my mom misses me already, but she also knows I'm going to have a blast! This is going to be a summer I'll never forget. Ahoy, mateys!

P.S. Here's a pic of my dad and me, just before we boarded the ferry.
