Mark you Calendar, January is coming up fast!

For all club members and guests


This is a fun event for you and your dog(s). You will be strolling along raised walkways overlooking the ocean. Lunch will be served at the London Bridge Pub (and yes, the dogs are invited!). So join us for a beautiful stroll along the beach.

DATE:  Saturday, January 20, 2018

TIME:  9:30am Meeting Time

PLACE:      Parking lot, on Ocean View Blvd. Between Beach Street & Balboa Avenue

LUNCH:     London Bridge Pub around noon


CONTACT:  Kay Paz (831) 222-0048 home (NEW PHONE NUMBER !)


DIRECTIONS: Head towards Monterey on HWY I. Follow the signs to Cannery Row

Aquarium. Turn left on Ocean View Blvd. (toward Pacific Grove). The parking lot

(meeting place) is on Ocean View Blvd., between Beach Street & Balboa Avenue, on

the right.

Dress in comfortable clothes to walk in and bring a windbreaker. In case of light rain, you may want to bring an umbrella. The London Bridge Pub (lunch place) is near the Monterey State Beach, a great place to let the dogs romp. The lW’s will have a great time with all the smells and activity that will include lots of people wanting to know more about our dogs.

Remember to bring water & “poop bags” for your dog(s).

For those that do not want to walk the full distance, call Kay to get information on a closer parking area. We should have a van to help out those that need a ride back to their car.

Please call Kay Paz to let her know how many are coming. If the weather is not cooperating, the walk may be cancelled; many times it may rain the night before and be perfect on the day of the walk.

Remember, the full round trip is approximately 7 miles, which you need to consider if you have small children, puppies, or veteran dogs. Some alternatives to walking the full, round trip Walk are:

A. You can park at the parking lot on Ocean View Blvd. and Hoffman Ave. This is just up from the Monterey Bay Aquarium and is approx. a 2 mile round trip to the London Bridge Pub and back. You can park there all day for a $10.00 fee.

B. There are parking garages and parking lots in close proximity to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which is about 1.5 miles from the Pub. Rates vary.

C. Or, you can do as some of our members have done in the past. Park at the lot at Wharf 2 near the London Bridge Pub, then walk toward Cannery Row to meet up with the rest of the group. There are benches along the way to rest and enjoy the scenery. Keep in mind that there are 2 sections to this parking lot — one is metered, and the other section (closer to Fisherman’s Wharf 1) is “all day”, you pay as you leave.

We will have at least one support vehicle with bottled water to meet us at several points along the route, and in case of an emergency.
