Santa Rosa . The largest city in Sonoma County. We went to the Visitor Bureau to try to figure out what was interesting . It was then mid-afternoon , it was sunny and we did not want to be indoors. If it had been raining maybe we would had gone to the museum.
The Charles M. Schulz Museum is dedicated to the works of Charles M. Schulz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip. The museum opened on August 17, 2002. Mr. Schulz lived and worked in Santa Rosa for 3 decades.
Maybe you know the characters of the comic strip ?
The famous Charlie Brown and Snoopy. Charlie Brown is characterized as a person who frequently suffers, and as a result is usually nervous and lacks self-confidence. He shows both pessimistic and optimistic attitudes: on some days, he is reluctant to go out because his day might just be spoiled, but on others, he hopes for the best and tries as much as he can to accomplish things. Snoopy has become one of the most recognizable and iconic characters in the comic strip. The original drawings of Snoopy were inspired by Spike, one of Schulz’s childhood dogs.
Lucy van Pelt is the older sister of Linus and Rerun. Lucy is characterized as a crabby, bossy and opinionated girl who bullies other characters in the strip, particularly Linus and Charlie Brown.
Woodstock never speaks normal words.The only non-avian character who can understand Woodstock’s speech is Snoopy.
It was fun to walk in the city not very far from the visitor bureau and see the characters If we go back to Santa Rosa, we will visit the museum…
