Hand Signals!

Needless to say, this is one of my fave running fields at the beach!

Up over the grassy dune I go....

Over the rise...

to see the North Atlantic churning and making the sand disappear into the ocean....

Jim and I look out over the waters wondering when the flakes of white stuff will start...

Let's not go there....besides we have to get back home...

I hear some excited waves along the boardwalk.
I must check them out!

There now I feel better.
Oh is that Jim calling me.
Always, hurry up, around here!

Oh he's doing that hand signal thing again.
It means 'COME'.
I see ya, I see ya!

I kinda like that signal stuff!


  1. Sophie,
    We like to play "run" too! That hand signal thing is so much easier to understand, isn't it? Our Mommy uses it lots, that and whistles!
    J & J

  2. Oh Sophie, You are so smart! And what a beautiful place you have to run!! How far away from the Ocean do you live? I love you're area... it always looks so peaceful.

  3. Sophie! So glad we stopped by. Every photo made us linger and enjoy. Amazing light, the color of the dunes...the motion of you running in those tall grasses...the shapes of beach stones. A beautiful place you have there my friend!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose

  4. That last shot of you running along the boardwalk is especially great, Sophie!

  5. whys its said "there's no better life" one I'm coming back as a Sophie!

  6. Oooo, I want to walk on the boardwalk with you! I know a dog named DeeDee (for deaf dog) who is absolutely brilliant at hand signals! They can be a lot of fun.

  7. Sharon....J & J must be super smart to understand the hand signals...treats are really a godsend for the learning process, eh!

    Bobbi....We live less than 5 minutes from the 3 beaches nearby. As a child I said to myself...myself you are going to live near the ocean when you grow ,right! Sophie's Daddy Ron

    Sierra Rose...check out comment on your bloggy ;-)
    Debra the boardwalk for sure!

    DebH...OK I'll give you some handy helpful hints :-)
    Terry...Special animals are real inspiration eh!

  8. You live in one of the most beautiful places! I'd love to run in that field or on that boardwalk with you!


  9. We know a few hand signals, but being scotties WE choose whether to obey or not.

    That is a wonderful place to run free!

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  10. Once again, I am drawn into the beauty of the area that you call home! It's just so amazing!! My husband thinks the same thing as he was looking over my shoulder as I was reading the post--He is WOW'd by your world too!

  11. A beautiful place to run. It looksa bit chilly willy out there
    Benny & Lily

  12. Samson Says: Sophie, you run like the wind. I think I may be falling love!

  13. Sophie
    I love walking on the board walk with you, even though I am pretending. And I love your tall grasses that the wind blows through,,, I really do love your world and you.
    And I am so happy that you and your daddys are so giving to share you and your world with us.
    You are so beautiful and your world is too.

  14. Sophie, Dillon would absolutley love to be there with you.
    What do your dads do when you are so muddy ? People assume I bath Dillon but I'd be doing that every day !!! I let him dry off a bit outside & a bit inside.

  15. DILLON....Dirty puppies get a 'hose down', then run around to shake, shake, shake your booty outside. then rest on the deck in the sun hopefully to get that DRY look! :-)

    Tweedles...our neighbour is a Tweedles like you.I trust you would run up and down the fence too.! is fleeting when you're running like MAD especially on the beach...just teasing!
