Hi Priscilla!
Long time no new! Sounds like you have indeed been busy! I guess you've heard that CC is going away at the end of the month. Thanks for the email.

What? Why on Earth was Joey given away? What happened? Poor Joey. So, he's back now?
Your folks aren't going to do that again, are they?

Purrs, Neelix

My sweet heart Talley and I have some wonderful news. We’ve finally chosen a date for our wedding day. Talley did some research and discovered January 6th (which is a Monday next year) was considered Christmas before the reform of the calendar. It is the feast of the Epiphany, which is when the Wise Men reached Jesus and announced his birth to the world. It is still called “Old Christmas” by orthodox Christians. The celebration is held on the Sunday that falls between January 2nd and January 8th. We chose Sunday, the fifth of January 2014 to exchange our vows.

We still have a lot of planning to do dear furiends. We will soon let you know where and on what page our wedding will take place. Until then, we hope you can set aside the date to share in the celebration of our love.

I left a vote with soft purrs and warm hugs.

"As our story continues to unfold, we've decided to have and to hold. So we're gathering together with open hearts, for a day we no longer will live apart. January 5th we'll share our love so true, with you as our guests as we say our "I do's."

Hedley here! I'm so sorry I haven't been by yesterday, but Mom couldn't login all day! She tried several different ways suggested by some of our furiends, but nothing worked, so she just gave up and took Sat. off. Today, she tried going to Yahoo.com, entering Cat Channel.com, then tabbing down to the Login CatChannel.com. .. Voila! It worked! Long way to back door it, but if anykitty can't get in otherwise, give it a try.

Hi Priscilla & family!
The weather here today is crazy. It is overcast and drizzly, yet this afternoon the temperature is supposed to hit 88 degrees. I guess that means it will be muggy! I think Callie and I will stay inside on the bay window with the A/C running.

Whitey and Orangie were waiting and ready to eat this morning, along with a couple of raccoons who were waiting across the street. Mom saw them right away and chased them away. They had already cleaned out the dry cat food bowls, so Mom didn’t feel bad. MOL! It’s kind of nice to know they don’t bother the outside kitties.

Tomorrow is D-Day for my fursister Callie (Dentist Day)! I think my Mom gets more nervous than we do about going to the vet. Okay, it’s probably a tie. MOL! Mom is trying not to send out nervous vibes, but she isn’t too successful.

I left a vote with purrs and hugs.

YOU KNOW YOU’RE A CAT PERSON IF …

... your neighbors refer to you as "the crazy one with all the cats."
... you have more pictures of your cats than your kids in your wallet.
... you refer to your cat as your furry child.

Hi Priscilla & family!
The weather here has cooled down considerably from the last 2 days. It should only be in the 80’s today. Today is shopping day for my Mom, so Callie and I made sure we have everything we need on her Petco list. MOL!

The outside kitties, Whitey and Orangie were both very hungry this morning. My Mom was playing with them with their favorite cat toy, a catnip cigar that they both like to bat around and toss in the air. Mom got a little careless and picked the cigar up to throw it, but Whitey got to it first and took a bite out of Mom’s hand! My Mom was more startled than hurt. I told Mom she has to pay attention!

I left a vote with purrs and hugs.

Wander With Whiskers – June 25-San Francisco
San Francisco – Day 1
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
After a good night’s sleep onboard the train, the breakfast bell chimes, signaling our journey is about to commence. With its soothing, almost therapeutic motion, we’ll travel for about an hour, while gazing out on our ocean-view train ride. Our next stop is San Francisco, where our Feline Motor Coaches will take us to our hotel in the city. More than just a hotel, The Westin St. Francis is a destination where we can unwind and be pampered by attentive, world-class service. The hotel is like a city in itself with shops and restaurants galore. The marble columns, ornate balconies and intricate woodwork transport guests back to the elegance of yesteryear. This legendary hotel is celebrated for its historic Magneta Grandfather Clock, known for the timeless refrain “Meet me under the clock!” The clock has served as the official gathering place for families, friends, lovers and international adventurers.

So let’s settle into our rooms, relax a bit and meet downstairs in the lobby to begin exploring “the City by the Bay.”

San Francisco is renowned for its cool summers, fog, steep rolling hills, eclectic mix of architecture, and landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge, Cable Cars, Alcatraz, Fisherman’s Wharf and its Chinatown district.

Exiting our hotel onto Union Square, we find a cable car stop right outside our front door. Let’s hop on the cable cars for a ride to Fisherman’s Wharf and Alcatraz. The cable car ride starts with a steep climb up Nob Hill, and then passes through Chinatown and Russian Hill before plummeting down Hyde Street to Fisherman's Wharf. For a real thrill, lets stand on the cable car running boards during the ride and held on Doris Day style!

When we reach Fisherman's Wharf (which we’ll be visiting tomorrow), our Motor Coaches will pick us up and take us to the Alcatraz Tour. To tour "the Rock," the Bay Area's famous abandoned prison on its own island, you must first get there, and that's half the fun. The brief but beautiful ferry ride offers captivating views of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Marin Headlands, and the city. The infamous and notorious former federal prison, Alcatraz was once home to the likes of Al Capone and Robert "The Birdman" Stroud. Once inside, we can take an excellent audio tour guide through cellblocks and witness a colorful look at the prison's historic past as well as its most infamous inmates. Hang on tightly to each other, as it is a rather spooky place to tour!

Afterwards we’ll stop for an Irish coffee and a light lunch at a cafe in the Ferry Building Marketplace. It’s time to board the Feline Motor Coaches and head back to our hotel. We’ll be walking across the Golden Gate Bridge tomorrow, so enjoy the hotel & get some rest furiends!

Wander With Whiskers – June 24-Santa Cruz
Next Stop-Santa Cruz
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
We must make one more stop before San Francisco. Back onboard the Feline Castle Train, we’ll be leaving Monterey, traveling along the shore of the Pacific Ocean, passing agricultural areas famous for growing artichokes, pumpkins & strawberries, until we reach our next destination of Santa Cruz. Let’s enjoy our first-class breakfast service on the train as we watch the world pass by. There are many interesting sights along the way such as the famous surfing location “Mavericks”, a winter destination for some of the world's best big wave surfers. Upon arrival, our Feline Motor Coaches await us.

Santa Cruz is best known for its majestic redwood forests, beaches & the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, since 1907 a popular seaside amusement park. We’ll start with the beach & the Boardwalk. The Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk is a half-mile long amusement park with more than 30 other rides & attractions. It blends old-time nostalgia with modern thrills. You can buy a bag of salt-water taffy, get your fortune told in the old-style arcade, take a road rage-releasing ride on the bumper cars, or test your mettle on the Giant Dipper, a classic wooden roller coaster & National Historic Landmark, whose unforgettable dips rival any extreme adventure in new theme parks. Ready? Grip your sweetie’s sweaty paw as your car clickety-clacks up the hill, then throw your arms in the air & scream your lungs out as you fly down the other side, salt air stinging your eyes as you laugh & whoop! Afterward, share a puff of cotton candy as we ride the hand-carved merry-go-round that was built in 1911!

Let’s wander the wharf to the end of the pier & peek below at the harbor seals lounging around the decks. We can have lunch here at Gilberts on the Wharf. This scenic restaurant serves fresh fish specials everyday with a glorious view of the ocean.

A trip to Santa Cruz isn’t complete without seeing the giant redwoods. We are going to hop aboard the Santa Cruz Beach-Roaring Camp Steam Train. The open-air steam locomotive travels over trestles, through towering redwood groves & up a winding narrow-gauge grade to the summit of Bear Mountain as conductors narrate the history of Roaring Camp Railroad & the redwood forest. In the 1880s, narrow-gauge steam locomotives were used to haul giant redwood logs out of the mountains. Roaring Camp's steam engines date from 1890 & are among the oldest & most authentically preserved narrow-gauge steam engines providing regularly scheduled passenger service in America.

The 19th century steam train brings us right back to the Boardwalk. Last chance for souvenirs, as we get ready to continue our journey, with the next stop San Francisco!

Wander With Whiskers – June 21-Monterey
Welcome to Monterey
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Perched dramatically over the Monterey Bay, the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa combines elegant European architecture, sweeping coastal views & sophisticated style to create the perfect vantage point from which to enjoy the gentle sounds of the surf, the fresh scent of sea air & the sight of otters, seals & dolphins at play. The Monterey Plaza's central location on Cannery Row makes it easy to enjoy the area's many attractions & activities, including the world-renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium just 3 blocks away. Let’s all check in & meet for breakfast downstairs at the hotel’s Café La Strada.

At the Monterey Bay Aquarium, we’ll experience the ocean in all its beauty & wonder in a thrilling way that few other aquariums can match. The Monterey Bay Aquarium holds thousands of plants & animals, representing 623 separate named species on display. The aquarium benefits by a high circulation of fresh ocean water which is obtained through pipes that pump it in continuously from Monterey Bay. The main 1,200,000-US-gallon tank is the largest in the aquarium, and features one of the world's largest single-pane windows. This was the home to the first great white shark ever successfully kept on exhibit.

Let’s explore the observation deck that allows you to spot sea otters in the wild! We can also do some whale sighting from these decks. Located at the ocean's edge, the Monterey Bay Aquarium is a window to marine life. It's home to sea otters, penguins, sharks, jellies & thousands of other marine animals & plants. Its mission is to inspire conservation of the oceans. Seeing the aquarium was exciting for the kitties. Walking from area to area, seeing the different types of fish & creatures is jaw dropping. When the kitties finished the tour, walking back outside into the open air was a bit disconcerting. From the depths of the deep, dark ocean to the blue, sunny skies of Monterey made us all feel a little dizzy.

Leaving the Monterey Bay Aquarium we are right in the middle of historic Cannery Row. In the early 1900's, Cannery Row was the bustling center of the area's sardine canning industry. However, a deadly fire in 1924 & over fishing eventually lead to Cannery Row's decline by the end of World War II. Inspired by the publication of John Steinbeck's Cannery Row, restoration efforts on the historic row increased. Cannery Row itself is now a tourist attraction with many restaurants & hotels, many of which are located in former cannery buildings, & a few historic attractions.

Let’s have lunch at the Sardine Factory restaurant & then do some souvenir shopping.

Tonight we’ll enjoy dinner at the Plaza’s Schooners Restaurant, suspended over the waters of Monterey Bay with an elegant Piano Lounge. Next week – San Francisco!

Let’s check in, unpack, relax and then meet for dinner in the hotel’s Pacific’s Edge Restaurant, an award winning establishment built with glass walls, showcasing sweeping ocean vistas. We will all meet in the hotel lobby tomorrow morning to begin our tour of Carmel.

Carmel-by-the-Sea was, in the eyes of Devendorf and developer Frank H. Powers, a real estate development in waiting. The two established the Carmel Development Company, which filed its map of the city in 1903 and began to market the haven to the poets and writers, artists and academicians, who would create Bohemia-by-the-Sea and launch the art colony renowned today.

Today, seasoned celebrities come to Carmel to blend like chameleons into this community by the sea. It’s where movie stars can have a romantic getaway. It’s a place with charm and sophistication that makes everyone feel like a celebrity.

Apply some sunscreen, pack a jacket and we’ll take an early morning stroll along pristine Carmel Beach. We’ll continue along Ocean Avenue and experience the finest shopping this side of The Riviera or Rodeo Drive. Hungry yet? Let’s people-watch at famed Hog’s Breath Inn, the popular restaurant and bar once owned by Clint Eastwood & enjoy lunch on the outdoor patio.

We can treat ourselves to a visit to the Cottage of Sweets, voted America’s No. 1 candy shop in a 2009 USA Today poll. Its curlicued roof and storybook architecture make this a quintessentially sweet Carmel spot.

We’ll visit Carmel-by-the-Sea’s City Hall, originally built in 1921 as All Saints Church. It was here that Mayor Eastwood served his term. We can experience the charming history of this famed art colony with a self guided walking tour that starts at Carmel Heritage Society’s First Murphy House, a 1902 legacy of Carmel’s charming history, and Comstock House. Hugh Comstock is accredited with creating the Comstock “Dollhouse Tudor” homes, 300-square-foot quaint cottages, particularly the iconographic Hansel House. In the 1920’s these sold for about $100. Today they sell for over 8 million dollars with their front-row ocean views from Point Lobos to Pebble Beach!

We can enjoy a casually exquisite dinner at one of Carmel’s dozens of top-drawer restaurants and top off the evening with a beach fire and s’mores on captivating Carmel Beach, rated one of America’s cleanest and prettiest.

Tomorrow we will be doing a little bit of walking and driving. So rest up and enjoy your stay at the hotel.

Wander With Whiskers – June 18-Big Sur to Carmel
Big Sur Coast Highway to Carmel
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
The Royal Feline Castle Train will be our guide through the Big Sur Coast Highway. We want to enjoy the spectacular scenery during the day, so after dinner on the train, we can all relax onboard for the night. Sip a cocktail in the lounge car, read in the library, gain a tree-top perspective of the landscape from the dome car or join furiends around the piano. Or simply relax in your cabin in the comfort of our sleeping cars until morning, when the breakfast bell chimes, signaling our journey is about to commence.

The stunning views of the Pacific Ocean right outside our windows make the perfect companion to our breakfast meal. Tables are set with crisp starched linens and fine china and glassware reminiscent of the glory days of rail travel.

Timing is perfect to enjoy a spectacular view of the California coastline as our train travels to our next destination of Carmel. We will be traveling the route that hugs the California coast, providing access to austere, windswept cypress trees, fog-shrouded cliffs and the crashing surf of the Pacific Ocean. Views include rugged canyons, towering redwoods, sea lions, and other marine life.

Big Sur's beaches are subject to generally cool weather. Sunny days are sporadic as a blanket of seasonal fog often hugs the coastline, dropping the temperature in the process. Private property and Big Sur's steep terrain make most of its coastline inaccessible to the public. However, several State Park and U.S. Forest Service beaches are open to the public all year. These beaches are recommended due to easy access and spine-tingling scenery.

The actual town of Big Sur has been a fertile area for artistic advancements. A variety of authors have immortalized the region with the written word. In the late 19th century, Robert Louis Stevenson lived briefly in the area, followed by John Steinbeck, Henry Miller, and Jack Kerouac, among others. Unlike many areas honored in literature, Big Sur remains relatively unchanged over the years.

John Steinbeck wrote, "Here at Big Sur, at a certain time of the year and a certain time of the day only, a pale blue-green hue pervades the distant hills; it is an old, nostalgic hue, it is a mystical phenomenon, or so I like to think, born of a certain way of looking at the world."

John Steinbeck's legacy is now synonymous with the Big Sur area. Known as Steinbeck Country, the cities of Monterey, Carmel and Salinas on the northern end of the byway brim with memories of John Steinbeck's legacy.

Our journey for now is almost over as we arrive to the city of Carmel.

Wander With Whiskers – June 17-Hearst Castle
San Luis Obispo to Cambria
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Check out time at the Madonna Inn is later than the usual hotel. But then the Madonna Inn has been anything but usual! We’ll have time for breakfast & a game of tennis on the pink tennis courts, or just relax & stroll the grounds.

Back aboard the Royal Train to continue up the coast of CA. We’ll enjoy brunch as our train glides out of the depot & begins its journey to the town of Cambria. Here we will detrain to the waiting Feline Motor Coaches & head to San Simeon, home of Hearst Castle. If we’re lucky, we might catch an odd glimpse of a herd of zebras grazing alongside the highway. These are descendants of animals brought to California for William R. Hearst’s personal zoo. But don’t worry; they are well cared for by the Hearst Castle grounds men.

William Randolph Hearst, an American newspaper publisher who built the nation’s largest newspaper chain, told architect Julia Morgan that he wanted to built "a little something" on the CA coast. Three decades later, Casa Grande (commonly called Hearst Castle) crowned La Cuesta Encantada, Hearst's "Enchanted Hill" above tiny San Simeon. It's a 165-room Moorish castle with 127 acres of gardens, terraces, pools & walkways, furnished with Spanish & Italian antiques & art, flanked by three large guesthouses. In its heyday, Hearst Castle had a zoo, tennis courts & two magnificent swimming pools.

With a personal collection of ancient art, sculptures, furniture, relics & more, William Randolph Hearst amassed a collection that still rivals museums today, and used almost every square inch of the hilltop California estate to showcase it all.

Today Hearst Castle is a State Historical Monument, and we can all enjoy a glimpse into the Hearst's opulent lifestyle.

We’ll be taking the Hearst Castle Twilight Tour where costumed docents literally bring the Castle to life! Warm lighting & staff in 1930s costumes - women sipping martinis over their card game, reporters typing their days' stories in their bedrooms & lovers strolling the grounds - bring the massive house alive. We’ll wind our way through the Casa Grande’s social rooms, guest accommodations, the Office & Mr. Hearst’s own private Gothic Suite.

Hearst lived & entertained at San Simeon with his long-time girlfriend, actress Marion Davies. Their guests included Hollywood stars, politicians & dignitaries such as Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable, Greta Garbo, Charles Lindbergh & Winston Churchill. On the Hearst Castle night tour, as visitors, we can pretend we've received an invitation to come to "the ranch."

Unfortunately, there’s no restaurant at the Hearst Castle. We have snacks onboard the Feline Motor coaches to tide us over until we’re back on the train, where our exceptional fine dining awaits us.

Wander With Whiskers – June 14 –San Luis Obispo
Another Day In San Luis Obispo
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
After a great breakfast at the Madonna Inn, the female kitties all wanted to take a peek at the famous (top ten in the world) tom’s restroom. The girls had heard a trip to San Luis Obispo wouldn’t be complete without visiting the tom’s room at the Madonna Inn! In it, the urinals look like caves with waterfalls, which is activated when you break a beam of light. Yep, that's it!

Walk to Morro Bay -
There’s no better way to spend the day than out on the incredible estuary in beautiful Morro Bay. Strolling the bayfront, fishing, kayaking or simply sitting on the dock…it’s all here waiting for us. Morro Bay, along California’s Central Coast, is among the most visually spectacular communities in America. This is where we will start. It has a rich early history that stretches back to the adventures of the Chumash & Salinian Native Americans & visits by Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo & the Manila Galleons of the 16th Century. Here we can see the famous “Morro Rock.” Morro Rock is also sometimes called the “Gibraltar of the Pacific.” It is the last of a line of long-extinct volcanoes formed about 23 million years ago, which include nine peaks ranging from San Luis Obispo to Morro Bay. Morro Rock is a State Historic Landmark, a bird sanctuary & home to nesting Peregrine Falcons. It is therefore closed to any climbing or disturbance.

Now let’s go on a driving tour. Our motor coaches will pick us up at Morro Bay. The uncrowded roads & stunning views in & around San Luis Obispo make for incredible scenic drives. We’ll get a mixture of vineyards, curving mountain roads, and coastal views driving up US 101 & loop back to San Luis Obispo via Highway 1 through cattle pastures & farmland. We’ll travel the scenic back roads into downtown Arroyo Grande. Stroll the historic Village, discover turn-of-the-century Victorians surrounding Santa Manuela Schoolhouse, and cross the suspended swinging bridge — the only one of its kind in California.

Let’s end our day with a visit to some wineries. Wine tasting should be a perfect blend of a great experience & great wine, and that’s just what we’ll get as we enjoy the hand-crafted bottlings of San Luis Obispo’s wine region. The moderate climate of the verdant, sunlit Edna Valley just outside town allows for an extended growing season, which give local wines lush, distinct flavors sure to please any palate. My particular favorite winery is called Talley Vineyard Wines! Enjoy sweeping views of the Rincon Vineyard & the fields of Talley Farms from the tasting room. The vineyard is just minutes away from Lopez Lake, a great place for an evening picnic. An ideal setting for tasting great Pinot Noir & Chardonnay.

Time to head back to The Inn.

Wander With Whiskers – June 12–Queen Mary
Aboard the Queen Mary -
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Before we leave, we must tour this fabulous floating hotel. Let’s all grab some pastry from the Starboard Bakery and enjoy our coffee while strolling the Promenade Deck before we begin.

On May 27, 1936, the Queen Mary departed from Southampton, England embarking on her maiden voyage. The Queen Mary had set a new benchmark in transatlantic travel, which the rich and famous considered as the only civilized way to travel. She quickly seized the hearts and imaginations of the public on both sides of the Atlantic, representing the spirit of an era known for its elegance, class and style. The increasing popularity of air travel helped signal the end of an era for the Queen Mary. By 1965 the entire Cunard fleet was operating at a loss and they decided to retire and sell the legendary Queen Mary.

Let’s go on the “Her Finest Hour: A WWII Tour,” for an in-depth look at the role the Queen Mary played in helping the Allied Forces win the Great War. Nicknamed the “Grey Ghost” after receiving a hauntingly stark paint job, the ship’s impressive speed and size made it an ideal troop hauler often carrying as many as 15,000 men in a single voyage.

With such a varied and intriguing past it’s not surprising that the Queen Mary has been voted one of the Top 10 Most Haunted Places in America. In fact, some say the Queen Mary is one of the most haunted places in the world with as many as 150 known spirits lurking upon the ship. Over the past 60 years, the Queen Mary has been the site of at least 49 reported deaths, not to mention having gone through the terrors of war, so it comes as no surprise that spectral spirits of her vivid past continue to walk within her rooms and hallways. Among the ghosts reportedly still hanging around are a sailor who died in the ship's engine room, a "lady in white," and children who drowned in the ship's pool. Other phenomenon occurring throughout the ship, are the sounds of distinct knocks, doors slamming and high pitched squeals, drastic temperature changes, and the aromas of smells long past. These are but a few of the many reports of apparitions and strange events occurring at this luxury liner turned hotel. There’s no doubt the Queen Mary is full of mystery and lore.

Let’s unwind our adventure-filled day with dinner at the Chelsea Chowder House & Bar. There’s nothing better than a juicy steak or fresh fish after a day at sea (or at port). We can watch the sunset and revisit the memories of our exciting stay aboard the legendary Queen Mary.

Wander With Whiskers – June 11 – Los Angeles
Welcome to Hollywood!
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Let’s all climb aboard our Feline Motor Coaches & head for Hollywood. Our first stop will be to see the famous Hollywood Sign. You can see the Hollywood Sign from many places around Los Angeles, but a quick drive up Mulholland Drive or above the Hollywood Reservoir will reward us with a glimpse of living in the Hollywood Hills & some great city views, too.

Next stop, the Hollywood Walk of Fame. We start the day by spending the morning on Hollywood Boulevard, following the path of bronze-and-marble stars along the Walk of Fame. Since 1960 more than 2,400 celebrities have been honored along the world's most famous sidewalk, but you'll need an old-timer to explain who a lot of the now-long-dead entertainers were.

Along the Hollywood Walk of Fame we’ll see Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. It's sort of a tourist rite of passage to compare your hands and feet with the famous prints set in cement at the entrance court to Grauman's Chinese Theatre, a tradition started when silent-film star Norma Talmadge "accidentally" stepped in wet cement during the premiere of Cecil B. DeMille's King of Kings. Go ahead -- compare your paws to footprints left by Humphrey Bogart or Marilyn Monroe.

We’ll take a lunch break & walk down the street to Musso & Frank Grill, Hollywood's oldest restaurant (since 1919). Part restaurant, part museum, this is where Faulkner, Hemingway, and Orson Welles derived liquid inspiration during their screenwriting days. After lunch, we can all waddle back to our motor coach, put in a ‘Best of the Beach Boys’ CD and slowly cruise the legendary Sunset Boulevard and The Sunset Strip.

This 1-hour drive takes us from sorta-seedy Hollywood to flamboyant West Hollywood, past the moneyed minimansions of Beverly Hills, winding our way into the secluded enclave of Pacific Palisades toward Malibu, and finally the Pacific Coast Highway (PCH).

We soon arrive at the Santa Monica Pier. Built in 1908 for passenger & cargo ships, the pier does a pretty good job of recapturing the glory days of Southern California. Buy an ice-cream cone at one of the snack shacks & stroll seaward past the wooden carousel, roller coaster, and arcades, then buy a ticket to ride the Ferris wheel.

From the pier, we’ll walk to the carnival-like stretch known as Venice Beach. For first-timers, this pseudo-bohemian scene is a bit of a shock to the senses: a surreal assemblage of street performers, musicians, musclemen pumping serious iron, apocalyptic evangelists, break dancers, stoned drummers, outlandish clothing—or lack of, and endless schlock shops. We haven’t seen it all until we’ve seen Venice! MOL!

Our paws should be tired by now. We’ll board our motor coaches & head back to our hotel for a leisurely dinner.

Wander With Whiskers – June 10–Long Beach
Welcome to the Queen Mary -
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
Relax on board the Castle Train after your sleeping rooms are assigned. Watch the scenery go by & listen to the rhythm of the rails. Keep a bag packed, because we won’t be sleeping here overnight yet.

We arrive to Long Beach CA in about 3 hours where we will be checking into the Queen Marry, our hotel destination for 3 days.

Once a world-class ocean liner, the Queen Mary Hotel offers guests unique accommodations & a wide array of attractions that simply cannot be found anywhere else. Each stateroom is unique with its own personality & offers a real glimpse into what transatlantic travel was like during the 30’s, 40’s & 50’s. On Oct. 31, 1967, the Queen Mary departed on her final cruise, arriving in Long Beach, California, on Dec. 9, 1967. She has called Southern California her home ever since. The Queen Mary is now a floating Hotel, Attraction & Event & Wedding Venue, home to three world-class restaurants & an icon in Southern California. With an impressive history & tradition of excellence, the Queen Mary Hotel is more than a place to rest one’s head – it’s an entire experience. There’s a wide variety of things to do on the ship, but we’ll save that for our last day.

Let’s Visit Catalina Island -
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
California's only coastal island retreat is a short trip away from Los Angeles & part of the same county, but it's surprisingly different from its mainland counterpart. Most of its land is preserved as a nature conservancy, surrounding the small town of Avalon where about 3,000 people live. Avalon is a small, walkable town centered on the small boat harbor & waterfront, with enough hotels, restaurants & activities to keep visitors happy.

The most common way to get to Catalina Island from the mainland is to take a ferry, but we’ll take the glass bottom boat. These large, comfortable vessels bring the undersea world right to you. During our trip we’ll visit the Lover’s Cove Marine Preserve, where colorful fish & marine plants thrive among the kelp forests.

Upon arrival, we’ll walk along the waterfront from Casino Point to Lover's Point. Along the way, we'll see orange garibaldi fish swimming in the kelp beds & boats in the harbor, pass through the center of town & out again, to where the beaches are less busy & the views unobstructed.

Catalina residents drive golf carts because it's difficult to get permission to bring an automobile onto the island, but most visitors do it just for fun. We'll find rental places along the waterfront. While we've got wheels, let’s head up the hill to take in the vista from just below the Inn on Mt. Ada, run out to the Botanical Garden, then go across town toward the Zane Grey Hotel for a different point of view.

Time to head back to our hotel!

Wander With Whiskers – June 7 –San Diego
LA JOLLA & TIJUANA
^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^^~^~^~^~^
La Jolla, CA
================= =^.^=
In Spanish, La Jolla means "the jewel," an apt name for a beautiful town ringed with blue waters. It's one of California's prettiest oceanside towns, and home to several of the state's best beaches.

La Jolla is popular with shoppers, romantics & outdoor adventurers who can surf, kayak, scuba dive & bicycle here. It's also a great foodie destination with some of San Diego's best-rated restaurants & a good place to go just to relax.

Beaches: When people say San Diego has great beaches, they really mean La Jolla has great beaches. La Jolla Cove, La Jolla Shores & Windandsea are not only the best in San Diego but perhaps the best in the state & La Jolla Shores may be California's most beautiful beach, with a wide, gently-sloping beach & panoramic views. A morning or sunset walk here is enough to relax the most stressed-out among us, and it's even better when the tide is going out, coating the sand with a mirror-like water layer.

We’ll go for a window-shopping stroll along Prospect Avenue & the side streets that run into it. With few chain stores in sight, we might just find something we can't leave without. To enjoy La Jolla at its scenic best, we’ll check the low tide times before we go, when the tide pools are revealed.

We only have a day, so let’s get back on the Feline Motor Coaches & head for Mexico!
…………………………………………………………………………
Tijuana, Mexico
================= =^.^=
It's only a short drive from San Diego, but we'll feel that we've entered another world when we leave the United States behind & enter Tijuana, Mexico. This tour is a must for bargain shoppers & lovers of Mexican cuisine. All visitors to Mexico will be required to present a passport upon re-entry into the United States.
REMEMBER – Let’s all stay together while we are here!

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:
Tijuana Cultural Center: The center is a multimillion-dollar showcase displaying exhibits about Mexico's people, events & culture, and is well worth a visit for the Mexican cuisine alone.

Shopping: The Tijuana terminal located on Avenida Revolucion makes it convenient to shop the many Bazaars & Boutiques. This is where we wheel & deal for shopping bargains. There are also ample opportunities to get your souvenir photograph taken with a Tijuana zebra (a donkey with black stripes) and cart. Good luck & be careful!

I hope you are all looking forward to riding the Royal Feline Castle Train next week, as we begin our journey up the CA Coast. My family & I will be returning to the Castle this weekend for some rest & relaxation. You are welcome to join us or continue your stay at the Hotel Del Coronado. Either way, we’ll see you back here on Monday!
