Traveler goes to the Beach

I just got home from our weekend in Coronado. I was kept so busy that Jill never gave me a chance to Blog! Tony and I worked very hard, meeting fans and signing autographs and books. But, as I always say, "there is no rest for the wicked"...

My view from my room's balcony. This hotel is so cool!

I spent Saturday on the beach.

I snuggled with Jill's sister, Sarah.

Then with Jill's brother, Clint.

Then, Sally buried me in the sand. But, not after she kicked sand in my eye. I guess every beach has a bully...

So, I built a sand castle to keep her away from me.
That point of land is called Point Loma. Point Loma is sometimes called "where California began" as it the site of the first European landing in California. On September 28, 1542 the Portuguese navigator, Juan Rodrigo Cabrillo docked his ship on the point. I wanted to visit the Cabrillo National Monument, but we didn't have time. Did you know Jill has a horse named Cabrillo? She named him after this area.

Later, Sally tried to tempt me into the tidal pools. I am not falling for that! Not tonight, Josephine!

She even tried to make me touch a Sea Anemone. Good try Sally, I am way ahead of you! You touch it.

The Hotel Del plays Tony's movie, Some Like it Hot, 24 hours a day!

Since people expect me to be "in the know" about Tony, I did some reading. This is Tony's new book that comes out on October 7th.

Later that evening, we attended a big event in the Ballroom. We watched Tony's clips and then Jill and Tony went on stage where Tony gave us all some behind the scenes stories about making the film and his life in Hollywood.

We had a wonderful time in Coronado!

Now, I am off to get some well deserved rest. We are heading to Sedona, AZ in two weeks.

Traveler and his Pen Pal

Traveler does get some fan mail from time to time, but he has been conversing with adopted Shiloh horse, Carson, for some time now. Normally, I don't see what they are saying, but this email was sent directly to me and I thought you all might like to read it.

Dear Jill,

This is Carson who is concerned about his buddy, Traveler. The pictures of Traveler "close to the water" were OK....I didn't worry...however, I don't trust Sally not to drop Traveler in the briny California waters.....you know she's not trustworthy since the "Roman episode". Please keep an eye on her so she doesn't "accidentally" drown Traveler. Thank you so much.....and Kathy and Larry wanted me to tell you to have a good time...just be alert...OK??????

XXXXX and OOOOO, Carson

Then I noticed that Travler had used my Blackberry during the night and answered:

Dear Carson,

Tell me about it! Sally said she is taking me "boogie boarding" today. Jill looked quesy when she said it.

I am afraid..

Traveler at the Hotel Del Coronado

It's a big weekend, Tony and I are at the Hotel Del Coronado for the 50th Anniversary of Some Like it Hot. There are lots of people here and we have two big events to attend...

The Hotel del was built in 1888 and is one of the last remaining wooden structures from the Victorian Era. I heard it is haunted and will be keeping a sharp eye out for anything susipicious.

I love the beach here. In fact, I intend to spend the day on Saturday sitting and sun bathing in the sand...

The North Island Naval Base is just down the road on Coronado and I can sit and watch the Navy jets coming in for landings...

I have lots to do and explore this weekend, so keep an eye on me!
