Santa Maria, California, USA - 14th February 2009

By: estromberg

Today Chippi W visited the famous United States Post Office in Santa Maria. He had an all access pass to view the ins and outs of mail processing. He met the carriers and watched how they sorted the mail to deliver their routes. He hopped into a LLV (Long Life Vehicle) to take a look around. Then watched as the carriers came back and dispatched the mail  to the next step in it's journey. He did meet a friend with similar teeth and proof that not just letters can be mailed!

Santa Maria, California, USA - 18th February 2009

By: estromberg

Elizabeth and Chippi decided to take a road trip to visit Renee, Elizabeth's daughter, who lives in Palm Desert, California. :D
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi.jpg
First we hopped on the Historic El Camino Real (Highway 101).
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi01.jpg
We headed south and left the beautiful Santa Maria valley behind.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi02.jpg
Our first stop was in the Danish town of Solvang.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi03.jpg
Solvang is known for it's windmills.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi04.jpg
And it's vineyards where they make delicious Santa Ynez Valley wine.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi05.jpg
Our next stop was at the beach in Ventura to let our friend Qi the Whippet run.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi06.jpg
It was so clear that we could see the Channel Islands way out in the ocean!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi09.jpg
Finally we made it to Palm Desert. The evening was warm and beautiful.

Do I look funny?????

Palm Desert, California, USA - 20th February 2009

By: estromberg

Chippi and friends visited the Living Desert Zoo today. Renee volunteers there in the children's petting zoo every Tuesday.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy1.jpg
Suddenly a huge eagle swooped down and snatched me away!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy2.jpg
I squirmed like crazy and he dropped me.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy4.jpg
OUCH! Right onto a cactus!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy15.jpg
A friendly warthog came by and saved me. I didn't know my way back to my host so he told me of a wise tortoise who lived near by who could help.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy5.jpg
Unfortunately he was sleeping for the winter so we went to ask the giraffes if they could help.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy9.jpg
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippikiss.jpg
They didn't know either and with a kiss they sent me to the wisest billy goat in the corral.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy18.jpg
Indy was indeed wise.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy21.jpg
After much contemplation he advised a journey to the Magic Blue Butterfly.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy22.jpg
He called his swiftest goat messenger, Patches, to take me to the Magic Blue Butterfly.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy17.jpg
On the way Patches showed me the nest of a huge bird.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy29.jpg
And we took a funny picture of me as a hummingbird!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/Chippy31.jpg
Finally we met the Magic Blue Butterfly and he said, "Look behind you. Your host is taking your picture right now!"

Palm Springs, California, USA - 21st February 2009

By: estromberg

Today Chippi visited Palm Springs. Home of the rich and famous. We searched high and low for all the stars but only met a few.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi010.jpg
Here's Bob Hope's Star!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi011.jpg
We sat and chatted with Lucille Ball.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi012.jpg

Escondido, California, USA - 22nd February 2009

By: estromberg

Today we traveled to Escondido to see the end stage of the famous Amgen Tour of California bicycle race. There were over 100,000 people there to see the race and we were lucky to get front row on the fence.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi013.jpg
We watched the cyclists race by in a blur followed by their caravan of service vehicles.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f214/renees3/chippi014.jpg
Levi Leipheimer won first place with Lance Armstrong not far behind.
Lance couldn't take his picture with us but he did let me sit on his bike!!!

Tiptoeing out of the room and putting a sign on the door
