Explore California: Fort Funston + Lexus collab

Fort-HeaderSo excited to finally blog about my first Lexus collaboration with one of my fave Bay Area buddies, Lauren. We’ve hung out a ton, but we came to a realization that our two dogs had never met one another! Cue: an off leash dog beach adventure at Fort Funston! (See Lauren’s post here!)

Lauren-in-carI drove the Lexus RX450 hybrid (amazing on gas by the way) which I thought was pretty big, until I saw Lauren drive up in the beastly GX 460.

Alfie

trunkThe last time I took Alfie to Fort Funston dog beach was last summer, so I thought it was perfect timing for the both of us to drive up in our matching Lexus vehicles and arrive in style with our pups to meet.

Gotta get da pants tucked into the socks ready for a set of rubber boots! socks-in-trunk

The tide was high the morning we drove up there, plus with all the rain that we got in California the past few weeks, made the long beach inaccessible right at the graffiti wall. In fact, the tide kept rolling in, and at one point Lauren’s amazing reflexes grabbed all our stuff in the nick of time, from getting swept out to the ocean. ALL BUT ONE ITEM: Mochi’s leash! The ocean ate it! Whenever Lauren has a reaction, it seems to be always (unfortunately) super hilarious to me.

We discussed later, that at least it wasn’t a key to the Lexus vehicles we had. Imagine?!

Although Alfie is a bossy boots and barks constantly to let all the other dogs knows he’s around (total little dog syndrome) he does listen to me well when I ask him to come, or sit for a photo opp. Except, it’s a bit difficult for him to look at the camera haha. Alfie-me

I loved how happy Mochi and Alfie were to be there, playing in the water and prancing around together, even though Alfie wanted nothing to do with Mochi. You’re failing at making new friends ALFIE. pupps

I wish Fort Funston beach was a bit closer to us, since it took close to an hour to get there. The views here are simply incredible.Fort-Funston-beach

After an hour or so we had worn out the dogs completely and it was time to venture back to the homeland. Pups-in-trunkMochi

Such a fun adventure, and I can’t wait for the next one!
