Look at what we saw perched on the lines over the water right after we arrived at the beach ... a handsome Belted Kingfisher! If you've never seen one be sure to check it out HERE to view close up photo's of both the Male and Female. They are really a unique bird species.
And now, it's onto a day at the beach, as told by Lily!
WOOHOO!!! Mom didn't tell me we were going to the beach! My favorite place in the world!
Except for the water ... whoa ...
But if it's the only way to get there, then so be it. After all, there's dogs, and seaweed, and shells, and birds ... and ... and ... lots of other great smelling stuff!
First Mom and I have to model for a bit. I'm quite the beach babe, wouldn't you say? No bikini or waxing necessary! The boys like me hairy.
More modeling, only I'm not in this picture (who knows why because I should be). Isn't she pretty? Elise and I had fun running together. She even drew my name in the sand!
Mom and I always like to come to the beach during low tide, that way there's plenty of room to roam. Of course she doesn't always plan very well, but today she did okay.
Ahhh, 60 degrees and perfect!
Oh gosh, what's that! Is there something in there? Is something moving? Is it going to attack me???
Seriously, what IS it! I don't like new things at all. They make me sooo nervous!
Mom says it's okay so I guess I'll have to trust her for now. Man I sure think those barnicles look scary though.
There's Elise again! She and I were so happy to have mom all to ourselves for a little while. That doesn't happen too often!
FRIENDS! I found FRIENDS!!
WOOHOO!!!! Look at us girls go! Today Rocks, it really Rocks!
We really weren't even to sure we liked each other at first, and I never caught her name, but us ladies know how to sniff things out.
This little Puli's name is Adesh. She was pretty chilled and seemed to like everyone and everything. She even came with two girls around Elise's age! They kept calling, "Adesh! Adesh!" which they said means sweety, or something like that.
I'm going to sleep good tonight! This has been the best day I've had in a long time!
And what you don't see is that after we went home, Elise made a big leaf pile for Winston and I to play in! Mom said it might help get some of the sand off my feet.
If only everyday could be this good : )
