Explore California: Saratoga Village

I can’t believe we’re on week 16 of featuring Alfie on the blog! Time has flown.

Last week I took Alfie out for a little car ride to the downtown core of historic Saratoga Village. We weren’t there too long as I only had one bag to pick up his dung, and of course as soon as we existed the car he took the messiest one of all time. Probably worse than last time at Fremont Older Open Space Preserve with him. Luckily there was a garbage next to us. I swear, he must get excited-nervous about where I’m taking him on these little adventures.

Regardless of that, I’m sure you don’t want visuals of what I’m talking about. Instead, some visuals of this beautiful little town! I’ve been here a couple of times before, but primarily on weekends. Going on a weekday in between lunch time and rush hour was dead silent and perfect for sight-seeing and snapping all the pictures I wanted.

What are your plans for this weekend?
I’m excited because it’s Banff Mountain Film Festival time! I had to do a bit of research to make sure that it in fact played down in the USA and it sure does. We’re going to be watching some pretty incredible films this weekend. Stay tuned.

Next week I won’t be blogging. As I mentioned in a few other posts I’ll be driving to Yosemite with my first ever climbing partner (we started climbing together in 1995!). She will be flying down here to California from Newfoundland, Canada and we’re renting a car and maybe doing a guided multi-pitch climb if the weather keeps being nice! Cross your fingers :)

    1. @suki: I’m really excited to go. I don’t think I’ve missed a year since I first heard about it. I’m super glad it’s being showed down here – I didn’t know if it would be, and as soon as we moved to California I checked into it lol. I think where I’m from, they had their film festival many months ago!!

  1. My dog is a complete spaz. We literally can’t take him out of the house unless it’s for a quick walk in the yard.

  2. Is that what things look like without snow on them? i think we have another 6 months with this on the ground.. My dog loves to ride in the car with me as co-pilot.

  3. It looks like you and your little fur-baby had a fantastic time exploring. I’ve never been to California but have heard of the Saratoga Village before as a must stop place. I wish I could go sometime with my own fur-baby I’m sure he would have just as much fun as yours did.
