Sun, surf and a dead fish :)

Off we went to the beach this morning and thank goodness MY park was open today. We arrived a few minutes too late to see the sun rise (the gate to the park is right next to the gate to the Mayport Navel Station and there was a lot of traffic entering this morning) That didn't deter us any though as it was a beautiful 75 degrees and we had the beach all to ourselves. First we have to go along the boardwalk over the dunes to the beach. Needless to say I was way ahead of Mom and all but galloped to the beach. By time Mom and Dweeb had caught up to me I had already found my prize and was enjoying rubbing my face all over it. For some reason Mom was not happy and said she might make walk home as she didn't want dead fish smell in her car! (half way down the boardwalk there is actually a shower for the surfers to rinse off and Mom was able to wash my face and get some of the stink off she is such a spoil sport)














Ah - this is the life, cool morning, cool sand, dead fish and the beach all to ourselves with clear blue skies - what could be better? I did also find a nice dead crab too but Mom caught me before I had a chance to partake in its perfume :)













I walked, I ran, I snuffled, I galloped and I even trotted and loved ever moment of it - Dweeb of coarse was glued to Mom's feet the whole time. Finally we reached the lifeguard stand which also happens to be our one mile marker - we know when we reach this is is time to turn around and head back the way we came. Then it was across the boardwalk back into the park where MY car was parked and a nice big bowl of water and a cookie. Perfect way to spend the morning if you ask me :)

  14. I believe you are living my dream life! I can't believe your mom didn't appreciate the fabulous smell of dead fish on your face why I would have thought she would have been kissing your face so she could take in the aroma.

    Aroo to you,

  20. Bowsers, we had a fish in Angel Paws once. An Osprey dropped it while flying over the park.
