It’s #TravelThursday! Today we present Woof Trekking Dispatch #3! In our last dispatch, we travelled on the PCH and through Carmel-by-the-Sea.

We left our hotel in San Jose and started the leisurely journey toward San Francisco. Our first stop was the Apple Campus in Cupertino. We were pretty excited, since we are Apple fans, but to be honest, there wasn’t much to see. The store on site (The Company Store), looked just like the one in our local mall so we didn’t spend much time there. Maybe when they open their new Campus 2, there will be something more exciting to see.

We stopped to grab lunch at the Duke of Edinburgh Pub and Restaurant. We got our order of Shepherd’s Pie to go and went on a hunt for a park to enjoy our meal with Izzy and Nana.

We ended up finding a park nearby called Ortega Park. There was a shady picnic table and then took a lovely stroll with the pups.

After lunch we drove around the Stanford campus and spotted the famous Hoover Tower. It is named after Herbert Hoover, our 31st President, prior to him becoming president. It contains materials relating to 20th century history that Hoover had collected and then donated to the university to found a “library of war, revolution and peace.”

Our final stop of the day was Oyster Point, a local marina. By this time of day, the wind had picked up and the temperature had dropped. We were freezing and Izzy looked hilarious with her fur plastered to her face.
