UP the Hill again!

It's been awhile...I'd say 6 months maybe...
since we trekked up the hill at the end of the beach.
This is one hike I always enjoy,
because of the steepness and bogs.
Let me show you what I'm talking about....

So this is Jim and I forging up the hill and 
as you can see...I'm galloping down
to 'hurry up' Ron.

On top of the hill is a massive field which is the best place
to run around and explore.
Once again, 'hurry up' Ron!

At the end of the field the land immediately fall's off...
a steep cliff is below us 
where you'll find surfer's some days
taking the waves.

 ...on the return I noticed this shot
and asked Ron if he'd capture it...
he's so obliging.

Now for a moment's rest to take in the view.
As you can see the the beach is found along a thin piece of land.
Hurricanes wreak havoc, here, because of the fragility of the location.
The cluster of homes including a B and B have been there for years.
Huge rocks protect them from the enormous winds and waves 
that pound the shoreline.

 There are the bogs I was talking about!
I usually dive into them,
but not this time 'cause the guys are trying to protect
my ears from getting inflamed.
I guess I'll wait for the spring.

Yes that's where we were..
way up there!
Can't wait to come back!


  1. Good Morning, Sophie and Guys! I remember that hill, beautiful pictures! Lovely views!


  2. Beautiful spot for a most lovely hike Sophie! Love the reddish undertones in those grasses. Can only imagine when a storm rolls in, wow!

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,

  4. How beautiful!!! I just have one question. Sophie, did you always listen so well, or did you have to attend obedience school? You're such a good dog...

  5. Now thats my kind of walk- our little terrier would love that ! and great views !

  6. You have the most beautiful places to go play, Sophie! I would love to climb that hill with you, though this old lady would be puffing and blowing by the time she got to the top!

    I hope that your ears are feeling better.

  7. Yes that was a very invigorating walk, wasn't it Sophie! We'll go back, don't you worry.

  9. What a gorgeous place. We too love romping around near the beach. It looks a bit chilly but so refreshing. We could hear the sea lions screaming too. You better tell Paw to take you there more often

  10. Benny and Lily...yupperinie...they will be taking me very soon!

  11. What a beautiful place for a walk. Guess you get lots of exercise Soph, running back and forth.

    The good thing about the bogs and hurricanes is that probably won't get built on!
