Can you spot Duffy?

For a while I wondered why Mickey didn't have Duffy in his house, but then I realized his Duffy was probably out and about, having fun. Like mine was!

Duffy at Mickey's House

Then we decided to visit Mickey in his house!

Duffy likes mirrors too, but not nearly as much as Shellie May does. It's fun to look outside though! At least, I'm pretty sure that's outside. :)

Duffy at Gadget's Go-Coaster

I used to LOVE Gadget SO MUCH! It is special that she still has a ride in Toontown!

Normally, Toontown closes early for fireworks, but it was a special Friday with no fireworks due to the parade filming that would take place Saturday. So Toontown was open late. There was no line, and a couple little girls were literally running around the queue to ride again! :)

Duffy survey and tiles on Buena Vista Street

So I was just about to head out of Disney California Adventure when a friendly survey taker asked if I would like to take a survey. I'd been getting asked that the ENTIRE TRIP so it made me laugh. I said yes and they took me to a small backstage area in Guest Relations! It looked like an office and I got to answer a computerized survey. Of course I told them how amazing Duffy was.

Then I took this picture, as this was a tile picture I hadn't seen before.

I would like to do some Disneybounding as the woman...Duffy could dress as the man, I think. :)

Duffy on Buena Vista Street

I just wanted to get a few more shots of the beautiful Buena Vista Street.

"We have had a lot of fun in Disney California Adventure!" said Duffy.

Duffy's Spring-ish Voyage - Part 27

Tiny Duffy and I are still on the then-101-year-old Great Lakes Freighter the James M. Schoonmaker!

From the guide: "You are now viewing the ship's navigational space known as the Pilothouse. This space was manned by a navigational officer and wheelsman, as well as the Captain at any given time. Upon her launching this vessel was the platform for many industry "firsts" which included her being the first Great Lakes vessel to have: wireless telegraph, dual steering gear systems, a general alarm system, and an engine direction indicator.

"Whee, I'm a captain!" said Tiny Duffy.

Outside, Tiny Duffy's magnets again came in very handy in the wind.

So Titanic-y.

The scenery was pretty, too.


"See you next time!"

Duffy climbs a tree on Buena Vista Street

There are just so many wonderful places to pose!

Duffy on Buena Vista Street

We didn't really get much of a trolley ride this trip...maybe next one!

Pretty fountain near Carthay Circle.

Duffy's Spring-ish Voyage - Part 26

Tiny Duffy and I are still on the then-101-year-old Great Lakes Freighter the James M. Schoonmaker!

"There sure are a lot of bathrooms on this ship!" said Tiny Duffy.

"Wow! So pretty down there!"

Tiny Duffy grunted. "Don't worry! I will open the door for you!"

A placard read, "You are  now in the Observation Room on the 'Texas Deck.' This room was designed to resemble the round room at the forward end of the Mississippi River steamers called the 'Texas Room.' This space was strictly  for passenger relaxation and offered a 360 degree view. The Schoonmaker and her sister ship the William P. Snyder Jr. were the only two ships in Great Lakes history to have such a room which was often referred to as the 'passenger's pilothouse.'"

 "Wow! This is a fancy place!"

 I do believe we were looking out at downtown Toledo.

We could have had even more fun if it weren't so windy! But Tiny Duffy was a very good companion to bring.

Since there are magnets in his paws.

Looking back at the Observation Room!

My parents' roof has one of those turbine things! It is shorter, though, and not green.

I'm not sure what the signal flags say. If Tiny Duffy knew, he didn't tell me.

This is one of my favorite photos of Tiny Duffy.
