Early morning jaunt!

Hi Everyone....we got up at 6:30am and stumbled down to the beach...it truly was a  beautiful, bright, and warmish breeze filled am. with only a couple people in sight. We took the grassy trail and headed for the further beach because it is dog friendly. With it being that early, it didn't really matter. I can't tell you how refreshing and rejuvenating this walk always is. The positive ions are everywhere and it just makes you feel like a new dog.

Daddy Ron had this Jesus thing come over him for a second...check out the sand....ooo!

As you can see the shadows were intensely long and because we are not used to seeing them from this angle we snapped a lot of pics.

Daddy Jim kept me active with the Chuckit ball...I love this thing...the ball has to be the rubber version and NOT the tennis ball fuzzy one. The rubber ball makes the best  sounds of squeaking and squishing...I even puncture them so I can fill the ball with saliva....yummmy!

While MY Daddies spooned I took off and....look what I found...

They were just there on the sand...abso'toot'ly beautiful, if I say so myself.

I ran back to hurry up the guys...gees....and we headed back home for breaky!!!!

 I stole one last gaze at the beach and water... realizing the wind had picked up and whitecaps were forming...the surfers would out in full force today.

As we neared the car parking area we had to walk over a small bridge and I looked to my right and saw this bird soaring over the water....

Please enjoy your day as much as I am...!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. What a great morning!! I wish I had a beach close by!

  2. Love the shots from ground level. It really helps to get the point across that it's from Sofie's view.
    Lucky dog to live near the beach.

  3. What a beautiful beginning to the day. That view of the beach, with the whitecaps forming, is so lovely. What a great way to wake yourself up, a nice long walk on a beautiful beach, with the breeze bringing in all kinds of wonderful smells.

  4. Well Barb...just keep checking out my blog and you'll see lots of beach(es)!

    Stew...thanks for noticing...the angle came about one day when we all were horsing around on the beach and when Daddy Ron downloaded the pics ...there was a very unusual pic...loved it from the ground up!!

    Louise...yes the whitecaps are so nice to see...I jump in them any time of the year and my Daddies only will go in August onward!

  5. Sophie, those pictures are beautiful! I especially like the shell - it took me to the beach for a moment.

  6. Great Terry...come to the beach and I will play with you...!

  7. Oh, my, that was early, for the shadows to be that long! Has one of your Daddies ever tried to make huge animal shadows with their bodies, rather that hand shadows? Might be interesting! Glad you enjoyed your romp!

  8. Will try that Sharon...if I can figure out a way to tell 'daddios' !

  9. I'm late getting here but think that a visit to the beach is a good way to end the day as well!! :-)) At a time when all we are seeing on the news are oil covered beaches and feathers, you have no idea how nice it is to see some where that is still so pristine and beautiful! ~Thanks for that!~

  10. Sophie! You have such special places to run and play! Amazing photos, great lighting :)

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  11. What a beautiful way to spend the morning (or anytime for that matter) We love the beach too. We would love to play & run on yours. Great pics - the ground level angle adds something special.

  12. What a glorious morning you had. Love the pics of both your daddy's shadows.
    It so beautiful there. And those pics at ground level, wow!

  13. mwah....to everyone who's enjoying my blog...my nickname is LICKER which comes from my 94 year old Grandpa. I'll put a photo on my blog soon!

  14. glad u liked my bad behaviour.... I cannot claim total responsibility for the comment
    as years ago a small child walked up to our car when we we lived and obviously schooled by her parents said to chris "you're gay you are!!"

    chris is typical sardonic style smiled at her and said simpley "and you are ugly"

    ps a white feather is a sign a loved one wants to say hello

  15. hihi miss sophie!!

  16. Oh, Sophie, what a great life you have. And you appreciate it so much too. I hope nothing bad happens to your beautiful beaches.

  17. I enjoyed my visit to your great blog...you live in one of my favorite spots.
    Hugs and belly rubs to Miss Sophie,

  18. You have two dads - you should meet our friend Tweedles - she has two moms. That is so cool to have two because all of us just got one but she works hard to make us happy like she was two☺

  19. You got some great photos. Brings back memories from a long time ago when I lived on the coast and love to walk the beaches at low tide.

    Was at a restaurant a while back and the owner was telling me about his labradoodles (he raises them). Says they are great dogs.

  20. Hi Sophie
    Oh you have the most beautiful ocean, and you have the best times. I am soooo jealous because every time I see you- there you are having a good time at the ocean. Well,. Next week I am going to the ocean,. Will I see you? I will probs be wearing my green sweater (the new one) and you can find me and come say hi.
    I love all the pictures your dads take, They sure do have a nice camera. Jeepers- I saw those blades of grass! Well I saw everything and I want that feather!

  21. Hey Tweedles..Guess what GREEN is my favorite color...soooo..I'll keep my eyes open and my tailwaggin'....Yes Daddy's camera is a fun one....he's always getting into contorted positions just to take a picture of lil' ol' me!


This 'DOODLE' is looking forward to your comment....don't be shy...all I do is SNIFF & LICK!
