We left the S.F. Bay Area Friday late afternoon and headed to Redding, California. By nightfall we had arrived and stayed at a Red Lion Inn. This is a dog-friendly chain of nice hotels that allow dogs in the rooms for a $15 per dog charge (free if you become a "member"). Highly recommend them. The staff actually were all smiles as we walked Chloe into the lobby to check in. They had never seen a Vizsla.
We traveled along the Trinity river (Hwy 299), a great drive through some wonderful country. We drove west through the Coastal Mountain ranges to the ocean. In Eurkea are sand dunes on Somoa Island. Here dogs can play on the beach and surf leash free. This area is an ATV and off road vehicle area, so I would only do this with dogs in the off season. We only saw a handful ATVs in the two hours we were there and no one was going fast.
A great weekend get-away. We were back in the Bay Area by Sunday afternoon. Chloe swam in lakes, streams, and the ocean. She was in heaven and we had a great time also.
