DJ, Wayne and I decided to see the Sundial Bridge last night. Traffic from Redding's big rodeo and an auto accident on the approaching highway congesting traffic, but parking was easy once we got to Turtle Bay.
Budweiser's famous Clydesdale horses were appearing at the rodeo (on the adjoining property) so we got to see a few of them (from a distance) in their portable stables. Even the horse transportation is impressive. There were at least four of these big rigs that we could see.
|This was not the biggest horse in the stalls, but this is the one I could easily photograph.|
|DJ, Lexie and yours truly |
|Lexie sometimes likes to be held this way. We're snuggling.|
|Looking straight up from the base of the pylon. |
My best attempt at modern contemporary photography.
|DJ took this picture of us on the bridge.|
|DJ "getting into" her photography.|
|Just after sunset. The glass panels along the walkway have lights under them. |
During October each year, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, the bridges lights are changed to Pink.
Lexie seems unimpressed but enjoyed the outing.
Because we were there for quite some time, and because we had Lexie with us, we naturally visited with some other dog owners. Some of these dogs were just plain ole' photo-worthy so, with permission of course, I took these pictures.
|This Pekingese is wearing "doggles" -- dog sunglasses.|
|This is the biggest dog I've ever seen. Maybe Lexie on steroids! She looks horrified. |
The smiling fellow on my left owns this Great Pyrenees. Bicycle inner tubes are used for a leash.
