Off To The Beach!!
On Tuesday, I went to the beach with my family and my dog. It wasn't quite warm enough to go swimming, so instead we just walked along the beach; occasionally dipping our feet in the water. The water was so beautiful and blue, and there was hardly any breeze, so the sand didn't get blown into our eyes. At times the sand was so hot that it scalded part of our feet, especially when we were walking back to the car It took a long time for Lilly (a golden retriever and cocker spaniel mix)to get used to the water. Well, sprinting was more like it. I was so hot!! It was like running on hot coals I imagine. And now back to the blue water, and crashing waves. As we were walking, three Labs of different colors came running after a ball, splashing in the waves. Lilly, of course, was thrilled to see so other dogs, but she was to scared to go in the water so she would just wait for the dogs at the waters edge and once we got to far from her she would forget the dogs and come running to us. She did very well at the beach; she never was aggressive torwards anyone or any dog, she would always come when she was called, and she stayed right next to most of the time. We walked for about an hour and then we came to some rocks. Some rocks had sea anemones covering them and others had muscles or limpets. We took a bunch of pictures, but it was on a big heavy duty camera so I'm trying to figure it out. I will post them very soon.
