Shellie May says hi to Disney California Adventure Duffy

"Hello, Disney California Adventure Duffy! Your clothes are kind of garish and your hat isn't really made for your head and they took a scissors to it instead, but I am sure you are a very nice bear!"

Shellie May with black and white plushes

"Those black and white plushies are very cute! Can I have one?"


"What about that pretty hood ornament? Please?"

"Maybe if I get very rich."

Shellie May and the Chamber of Commerce

"Shellie May and the Chamber of Commerce...wouldn't that make a great name for a book?!"

She grinned at me. "You took a survey here back in November with Duffy, didn't you?"

"Yes. Yes I did."

"This is a nice place to sit if you are very small."

"Such pretty scenery behind me!"

Shellie May in Buena Vista Street

We got in about 8:40 AM (the park opened at 9 AM, but they let people in early to explore Buena Vista Street).

As soon as Shellie May and I were inside, we hurried to get a locker for my jacket. And then we had 20 minutes to take pictures!

Shellie May outside of Disney California Adventure

And if I recall correctly, those young people were dressing like Ninja Turtles too.

And it's almost time to go in!!!

Harlem Shake outside Disney California Adventure

Then while we were waiting in line to get into the park, some young people decided to do the Harlem Shake.

I know Harlem Shake is over and I didn't see this one in person, but this is my favorite Harlem Shake ever.

Shellie May and the Primitive Road

"WOW!" said Shellie May. "It is a primitive road!"

Looking back at the freeway was pretty darned cool.

Shellie May finds a shoe

"OH WOW!" said Shellie May. "SOMEONE'S SHOE!"

I guess Shellie May really does make every place fun, because I was laughing.

Shellie May climbs a...tree?

"Whee!" Shellie May said. "I am climbing a tree!"

"Shellie May!" I cried.

"Actually, it is prickly and not very comfortable. Can you help me, please?"

Shellie May and Debris

"Wow," said Shellie May.

"Look at all that debris! It is SO COOL! I think there might be a rusted mattress spring set in there!!!"

Shellie May is nothing if not enthusiastic.

Shellie May is on the road again!

So Shellie May, me, and Mom went on a trip to Disney California Adventure (back in March).

We pulled off at a kind of sketchy exit to let Mom stretch her legs and to let me drive.

"WOW!" said Shellie May. "It's so scenic! Do you think they could get Lightning McQueen to finish paving this road???"

"Well," I said, "there's not really any town here, so maybe not."

"But maybe yes?"

"Well, sure."

"Yay! Then they can build a pretty town here since there will be a nice paved road to get here!"

One last look at the Prescott Square

Our time in Prescott really IS winding down.

"Goodbye, Prescott Square!" said Shellie May. "Goodbye, historical signs!"

Shellie May at the Prescott Brewing Company

"Oh yay! It IS time to eat!"

We went to the Prescott Brewing Company.

Mintsy and Shellie May had a great time chatting! :D

"Wow! That burger is on ciabatta bread and covered in onion rings!"

Duffy's Spring-ish Voyage: Part 30

Some fun random things from Ohio.

Duffy at Tim Horton's! DONUT

These old factory-looking buildings are common in Ohio.

Then we went back to my aunt's beautiful house.

Which has a lot of things made out of metal!

"Look at the foliage!" said Shellie May.

 She enjoyed swinging from the light fixture.

"You are a modern-day Tarzan," I said.

"I do not know what that means," she replied.

Shellie May brings love too!

She has a bit of musical talent, actually..the bear in the background doesn't seem to mind her playing, anyway!

Shellie May on the streets of Prescott

Just a look at the streets of Prescott.

"Is it time to eat yet?" asked Shellie May.

"Hm," I said. "I think it's almost....oh, are you making a pun?"

"Tee hee."

Shellie May visited a museum

You can see the Sharlot Hall Museum sticker on Shellie May's paw.

"This is going to hurt to take off, isn't it?" asked Shellie May. "That's not very thoughtful to bears! Our skin isn't smooth like human skin."

"You're supposed to put it on your clothes," I said.

Getting ready to leave Prescott

Alas, our time in Prescott is drawing to a close.

"But we had fun!" said Shellie May. "And we still have a little time, right?"


From this angle, the "P" on the mountain looked like an "F"!

Candy and Snow White and Shellie May

"Wow! A candy shop!"

This was in one of the antique shops we visited. Snow White kitchen!

"Can I have it?" asked Shellie May. "Can I can I?"

"No, but you can use my kitchen anytime you want."

"Maybe if you cleaned it more." Shellie May made a face.

Shellie May loves old-timey ceilings

Almost certain this is at Bashford Courts. Shellie May and I both love painted tin ceilings!
