Jenner by the Sea

Disclaimer: It helps if you sing the title of this post, in your best lounge-lizard voice. Think “Jennnnner byyyy the Seeaaaaa”.

See? Totally helps.

You can’t visit this amazing little alcove and NOT have the best time ever. Seriously.  We stayed in the Wieland Family house in the town of Jenner, right outside of Bodega Bay. It’s relaxing, out of cell phone range, packed with homemade meals and the perfect place to spend 2 hours playing Gin Rummy.

It’s also the Ultimate Dog Weekend, so when you’re hell-bent on being the best dog parent ever (wink wink), it’s a pretty awesome 2 days away.

And the best part? We managed to get some sunshine AND exercise in! I didn’t get my 10 mile run in, because, well…. There is this thing that happens to me when I enter a different zip code. Its like, all inhibition and self-control go out the window. (Does this happen to anyone else!?) So there might have been a few adult beverages and an endless supply of homemade cookies and Doritos (whimper)…leaving me fat and happy, but in no shape to hit the pavement.

However! We did walk/explore many miles with the pups off leash. The view was amazing and the company was even better! We didn’t capture a group shot – but there were 5 of us and 3 dogs.


We aren’t the rule-following type so if that’s a problem you might want to keep scrolling down…

I’ve said this before, but Jenner is Murphy’s HAPPY PLACE. (As long as he can see me) this whole running off-leash with the breeze whipping in his face thing is the cat’s meow. For reals. And I really try to not be an overbearing dog mom. He’s a boy, super sure-footed and without fear but GEEZ I swear I can never have sons for fear of going into cardiac arrest at a very young age. AH. Kids.
