Santa Rosa

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…

It is always interesting to discover new things as you travel.  And everywhere on this planet  there are many things to learn and to enjoy !

Thanks for reading.

  1. A Charles Shulz museum! Did they say when the comic started? I seem to remember it being a new comic strip when I was about 10 years old.
    Funny statues. It is difficult to make a 3-D image from just a 2-D drawing! Fun to see!
