It was another gorgeous day outside yesterday with temps in the mid 50's so Lily and I decided to make the most of it and head to the beach during low tide.
The beach has to be Lily's favorite place in the world. Usually I can let her off leash to run and play with all the other dogs. Unfortunately it didn't work out this time so I had to put the leash back on, which she was fine with. Or at least I'd like to think so anyway.
Trying to take pictures while galloping along isn't easy!
Looking out towards the Isles of Shoals
Back when I was a kid this was a common sight, flocks of birds running back and forth along the waters edge. Not anymore. Now people have destroyed their habitat and nests, littered the beaches, and pushed them out.
My bird book is pretty lousy so if someone could help ID them I'd be thrilled. So much fun to see them all running in unison.
* Leecia and Steve both tell me the birds are Sanderlings! Thanks to both of you!
Sneaking up on seaweed, and there was plenty of it to be found due to our resent wind storm and exceptionally high tides.
Every big clam shell that was sticking up out of the sand was thrilling yet terrifying at the same time. First Lily would sneak up on one, then if she was brave enough she would pick the shell up and carry it around in her mouth for a while. We brought a bunch of her favorites home with us.
Okay sweet girl, I'd say it's time to go. You look pooped out and ready for a big drink of water back at the car. By the time we got home both of us were ready for a quick power nap!
Thanks for coming along!
