I took the dogs to the beach yesterday. I actually had a day off, so went out to my mom's house and spent the night so we could head to the beach with the sunrise Saturday morning.
I have to say, I love the morning sun for beach pictures. We didn't make it before sunrise, but did get there by 7:30, so had almost two hours of beach time before the serious haze started coming in. I think it would be safe to say the dogs like the beach. They took off running and wrestling the second we got out on the sand.
Pallo even decided to take a bit of a "Super Dog" romp in the waves.
Finding an empty plastic water bottle was, perhaps, Pallo's highlight of the day. He happy "tried" to pick up the bottle, causing it to go rocketing off across the sand, which meant, of course, that Pallo had a chance to give chase after it.
I even tried my hand at getting a paw-print-in-the-sand picture.
Koira, on the other hand, decided to try her paws at digging a hole to China.
She dug a hole half the size of her body in no time flat, so I think she would have had a good chance of getting to China if she hadn't given up and decided to bug the camera lady instead.
And a bit of a less-tilted photo of her digging to China, with the pretty ocean in the background.
We even saw a baby seal on the beach. I leashed up the dogs when someone told us about the baby seal ahead, and my mom very nicely held onto them while I got closer to take a picture (with my zoom lens). I don't think the dogs even noticed the baby seal at all.
Pallo hopes you all had a great, relaxing, and slightly less sand-in-you-eyes weekend!
