at the beach again

We have spent all week at our beach house - it's been great (if a bit cold). There have been long walks on the beach every day and lots of gorgeous smelly fish and such to find in the dunes.

Gracie runs and runs and although she is braver now about going into the water - she still won't swim out to fetch a stick. So all the sticks are mine...

where is it?

you"ve got to look out for those waves

there it is

But when I get back to shore, she attacks and tries to wrestles it away.

And then the chase is on!
Gosh she is fast - I can't catch her once she is in full flight
- and so quick on the turns.
We love the beach!


  1. That' what Molly does to me! She is too namby-pamby to brave the waves herself and as I emerge with my retrieved stick she is there to take it off me. So most often now I just drop the stick or ball half way before I get out of the water so NO ONE will have it! You should see the pinkies stomp when, alas, another ball s lost. I rather see the ball than my battle lost.
    But all these are memories now as I haven't been allowed down to the beach for a good mongrel-around in momths. Ahhhh....maybe one day again...

  2. So much fun! We have yet to make it to the Oregon coast this year. Waiting for the weather to warm up.
    Great Pictures!!
