Who says size matters?
Just a fun day hanging out at the Ranch.
Ambergris Caye, Belize is a great place to spot nurse sharks as well as other marine life. We were able to observe fish and nurse sharks in the most stunning blue waters of Central America.
Although we were in close proximity with the sharks and other fish, we never attempted to touch or interact with them directly.
This was filmed during a road trip going North on US Highway 395.
Gordo is a very experienced traveler and it has always been fun to take him along with us wherever we go.
We needed to catch baitfish for our day of fishing. The solution: catching sardines using a throw net.
We scanned the area looking for pelicans diving into the water. This is where we knew we would find schools of sardines. We drift in close enough not to spook them and threw the net in time to catch enough before they swim away.

Gordo’s BFF’s arrived on an unannounced visit to say goodbye because he is leaving on a trip.
Fly Fishing during a light rain and seeing the mist rise from the water while catching trout was amazing.
It has been raining here for the last week and Gordo & Dino have been itching to get out of the house before winter starts.
They fattened up on “Thanksgiving treats” to build up their winter coats before the snow begins to fall.
We snorkeled late afternoon on the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii with manta rays. People have said that snorkeling with manta rays could be dangerous but manta rays don’t have stingers like sting rays or eagle rays. But keep in mind, they are still wild animals and need to be treated with respect.
The Big Island of Hawaii is the youngest and largest island in the Hawaiian chain with dramatic climate contrasts across its seven regions.
It has the most active volcano on earth: Kilauea, which is located within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (HVNP).
Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (HVNP) was established on August 1, 1916 and encompasses the Mauna Loa summit area, Kahuku Ranch, Ola’ a Rain Forest and Kilauea Volcano’s summit, south flank, and east and southwest rift zones. HVNP was recognized as an international Biosphere Reserve in 1980 for its unique scenic and scientific value and became World Heritage site in 1987.
The Big Island of Hawaii is a place for serious adventurers where you can explore exotic black sand beaches, snorkel with manta rays and many other type of marine life, and go on many other unique eco adventures.
Filmed at Kahalu’u Beach Park and Honaunau Bay-“Two Step” (proper name: Pae’a).
“Two-Step” is really amazing. It is difficult to get out of the water.
Hawai’i has 75% of all the coral in the United States. Over 5,000 species of tropical fish, of which over 500 are found only in Hawai’i, making snorkeling and diving very special.
Hawai’i island often called the “Big Island”, is the largest and tallest of the main Hawaiian islands. It is 95 miles long (N-S) and 79 miles across (E-W), with a total area of 4,028 square miles. Its land area is larger than all the other islands combined. Its highest elevation is 13, 796 feet at Pu’u Wēkiu on the Summit of Mauna Kea.
Just north of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, our adventure began in an area named Manta Heaven. As we put on our gear and approached the boats edge, the water lit up with a surreal glow.
What we were about to experience, was something we will never forget.

An English Bulldog and a French Bulldog Playing Together
Simon and Gordo interacted under our supervision at all times. This is the first time Simon got to play with Gordo and we did not allow any rough play. They enjoyed their time together.
Shingletown, California, situated in the Cascade Mountain Range in Shasta County, is a little town, near Lassen Volcanic National Park.
Shingletown has a history of logging large timber, including pine, fir and cedar. It is also known as “The Gateway to Lassen”.
Molly is totally flirting with Gordo but he is playing hard to want.
Gordo is having fun Carmel Beach (a dog friendly off leash beach in California).
Dino and Gordo and all their play-buddies are inseparable friends.
