(Cathy: I'm asking each family member to talk about their favorite memories of the trip. This is the second of Brennan's posts.)
Brennan: At the beach at Carmel -by-the-sea , we got pelted by the waves. The water was cold!
Hey, squirrel, Stop stealing my food, or you'll get the beating of a lifetime!
We found a sea monster at Carmel! Why wasn't anyone scared?
I also discovered a new beach. I called it Schultz Cove. (Well, the whole family helped discover it, actually.)
We're running away from a grizzly bear here. For some reason Mom and Dad weren't too worried about us.
We're trying to imitate the faces on Mt. Rushmore. Did it work?
I'm glad we didn't see this guy in the wild!
(Ed. note: this grizzly was at Bear County USA, a wild life safari in South Dakota.) I loved this badger at Bear Country.
These kittens were one of my very favorite things on the trip. This was Tiny, who I named. (ed. note: This is at the Laura Ingalls Homestead Site in South Dakota.)
