Yesterday was a big day for all of us

Carlie was so tired Wednesday that she was having a nap on the bath mat while her dinner was being prepared. I startled her taking the photo.

Yesterday, Thursday, was their first beach day. I purchased wider 20′ leashes that they have to drag around and it keeps them from going too far too fast.

They loved it of course.

They are a year older and much calmer now. Back and forth a few times seems to be enough. No more barking at the top of their lungs.

Of course I kept giving them a treat ( a piece of their kibble ) to give them the incentive to turn around and come back on their own.

Carlie still loves the small waves.

Not too many paws on the sand.

We think they are ready for the long end of the beach. Still on leash for now. Then they will be free to run and run.

Colin dropped me at El Valeros’s for the Thursday night live rock and roll music by Cannon.  I have a sore right leg and said I was not going to dance at all. However there are certain songs that like magic make you get up and suddenly you are on the the dance floor. In this case, barefoot in the sand. Colin joined me after returing the girls home from the beach.

My two new besties, Kelly and Michelle. Sadly Michelle and Ray left for Rincon today but they will be back.

Obviously a great time was had by all.

We all got home and then there was a knock on the RV, Michelle was about to start a cooking demonstration on how the make the best guacamole ever. It was fabulous 😛

Taking notes.


A fun end to the evening.

    How wonderful to see the girls running on the beach, they look like they are having so much fun. I can see by the photos that you are getting your zen back, dancing and all. It’s good for the sole.
    The beach looks a little busier than in the past, are there more people than usual?

    Hi Contessa, glad U all 4 seem to be enjoying your winter season. How high are the temperatures on that side of the planet ? Our T’s in Southern California are in the 70’s but the Santa Ana winds have been driving us crazy for awhile, muchos debris, dust & broken tree-branches everywhere.
    My regards & keep enjoying the beach / good weather.
