That Blew a Few Cobwebs Away:)

Yesterday morning we bit the bullet and went to the beach even though the weather was looking a bit iffy.  It was very windy when we got there but no rain:)

Beryl loves it at the beach:)

So does Frankie!
While the wind wasn't cold it was strong enough to blow Beryl's lips out of shape!

Beryl sucking it in!
So I stuck to the damp sand hoping I wouldn't get any of it blown into my camera like last trip to the beach:)

We only saw one other person and that was on our way back.  An older man driving a little mini moke who came over to us and asked if Beryl was a Greyhound.  He wasn't sure at a distance as she doesn't have a tail, lol.  So I had to tell him the story of why she hasn't got a tail!

It was lovely to have the whole place to ourselves and just mooch around.  Beryl did some ball fetching
I got it for you, Mum!
Beryl's skid marks;)
I'm bringing it back real quick, Mum!
She dug a hole ...

And then Frankie rolled in it!
That's not why I dug the hole, Frankie!
Frankie coming back for a drink, looks like he really needs one!
Beryl running back for a drink:)
Beryl did some cross country jumping:)
And some more running.
We were there for over an hour and I expected them to sleep the rest of the day (and night) away after all the fresh air and exercise, but no.  Within about half an hour of getting home, having a bit of a power nap they were both raring to do it all again!  I've created a couple of monsters, lol.

This afternoon we went to the park and Beryl met new foster dog, Lily, for the first time.  I also had a great reunion with Lucy and Louie who I hadn't seen for a few weeks.  Beryl isn't impressed with me and Lucy smooching!
Oi, what about me, Mum?
Beryl, Frankie and I went to the river after this and enjoyed the sunny afternoon.
Frankie is faster than Beryl over the stony ground:)
Tomorrow afternoon Beryl and I are going on a GAP walk so hopefully more photos and more new friends:)

We hope everyone is having a great weekend too:)  And I think we'll join in on the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop today.


If you want to join in too, go to any of the first 3 links, who are the co-hosts of the blog hop, for the instructions.  Happy blog hopping!

Seeing your dogs frolic on the beach really makes me smile. Dogs know how to enjoy themselves, don't they?

I'm in envy every time I see your beach pictures! You get such great shots there! It looks like you have some very happy pups. I'm betting Beryl will have a great time tomorrow, too!

What fun! I particularly liked the shot of Frankie rolling in Beryl's hole. Too funny!

that looks like a great run to blow out the cobwebs. Arrow got to blow out his cobwebs today for the first time too :)

gyeong said...

What a blast. Great pics. Power nap? That would've knocked my guys out for two days

jcp said...

beautiful photos as always. The dogs look like they had a blast!

Glad you got out of the house because that looked like a lovely day! Great pictures too. I of course particularly like the one of the PigDog rolling haha.

There's so much driftwood on the beach. You must be having the same nasty wind we've been getting here. I keep imagining it's blowing in from the antartic [probably not true, though it feels like it]!

Have a great week all xox

Oh, wow, Beryl looks gorgeous in that first photo. She's got such lovely lines. I love the way you used the photos and captions to help tell your story. Very nice...Beryl digging a hole (typical sighthound, I wouldn't expect anything less of her) and Frankie rolling in it, that cracked me up. Hilarious. Beryl's hanging lip is funny, too.
