Journey back in time to the Hotel Del Coronado.
Thirty-Two years ago, my husband to be took me for a romantic holiday to the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego, California. Built in 1886, the historic hotel was a fine example of how a landmark can be restored and maintained by keeping the ‘bones’ of the building while offering new and modern conveniences.
Fast-forward to June this year and wowza, the grand lady looks fabulous and Fido is welcome to join you!
What was different? For starters, walking to the beach through the corridor where photos of the past adorn the wall, you will find the fun and Fido-friendly candy/dog shop Spreckles. Spreckles beckons you and Fido to step inside to enjoy the sights and smells and choose a yummy chocolate turtle for yourself and doggy cookies for your pal. This is also a great store to bring something back for Fido just in case he was not able to make the trip with you. Artwork of the stores black Lab namesake, Spreckles, adorns the walls along with fun photos of dogs just being dogs.
Walking with your leashed pal on the beach is a must and a few miles down the coast is the famed dog beach. Release the hounds and let them enjoy romping in the surf with other friendly Fido’s for as long as you like and as long as your dog’s stamina will allow.
