The Canine Travel Team has taken you to several beaches (remember "Norman and Newman's Nautical Adventures"?) but this was their first trip to Asilomar.  As you can tell from Newman's happy aura, they loved it.  Asilomar is a popular beach for surfing and it is also the perfect place to take your pups for a walk or to tire them out with lots of running.  We have been here midweek, and on the weekends and have never found it crowded.   It is a very serene place and as you can recall from Monday's post, the views are just breathtaking.
Maybe it's because the central coast waters tend to be so chilly that not many people venture around here but that is ok with us.  Norman and Newman had a blast running around and getting their beach on.  I just love the way Norman smiles. 
Bring a blanket because this beach is also a great place to just chill out.   However, be aware that you can be freezing one minute and longing for a tank top the next, so layers are key.  On a side note, Newman still struggles with riding in the car, he gets very anxious, can't sit still and pretty much cries the whole way.  If you have any tips please do send them our way.  We have tried positive re-enforcement, putting him in a seatbelt for dogs, letting him look out the window, his crate, treats, you name it but we are at a loss.  We love him so much and don't want to leave him at home because as you can see from this post, he has so much fun once we get to the destination.
 How do you make traveling with your pets possible?
