Comments for South Pasadena
-->South Pasadena: 09/08/07
After the two part stop near Harris Ranch we stopped once more at Tejon Ranch to switch drivers. I had done all the driving that day because I actually enjoy driving that stretch of the I5 through the central valley.
We arrived in South Pasadena an hour earlier than expected. It had been hot the entire drive but what we hadn't counted on was the stifling humidity and temperatures 15 degrees hotter than normal.
Even with all the windows open at night the house never cooled. On the first night there wasn't much to do about the heat except take either lukewarm baths or showers. Harriet was the most bothered by the heat and was only happy when either in the bath or in the pool. We kept her stripped down to just a light weight t-shirt and her diaper.
Despite the heat, Harriet did manage to have some fun. She fell instantly in love with Wally. We tried teaching her the word dog but she insisted on calling him a cat even though he's about 8x the size and weight of Caligula.
