Exercise Time!

With all the joy and love showered on me lately,
I figured it was time for Daddy Ron to take me for a walk.
We chose MacDonald Hill in between our two favourite beaches
Lawrencetown and Conrads Beaches.
Yes, it was mighty chilly but who cares when you have the whole place to yourself.
You can see Conrad's Beach in the distance. 
That beach is being eaten up by the fierce winter storms this year. 
This coastal occurrence is becoming more prevalent. 
We figure that point of land including the woods will disappear in this decade. 
Now that's fast because in the 1950's, we were told that there was a baseball diamond on that point of land and hurricane Hazel decimated the area.
With that joyous history and geography lesson,
I figured it was time to get up the slope and do some serious sniffing and ball chasing.
 So off I gallop and as I'm cresting the hill I look down and sea this wave crashing!
In a couple months I'll be able to go back in the those waves.

 That's better...I needed the exercise because of all the birthday treats!
Now for a last look for my ball which seems to have conveniently made itself disappear. 
How about here?
Time to return to the car.
Daddy Ron is chilly willy and I am sated.


  1. That looks like a fun romp in the snow!

  2. You live in the loveliest place! I can't wait to see you in the waves again!

  3. Now, I'm not sure if my post, registered. -sigh- Perhaps I went too fast. -sigh-
    Sorry if I did. -sigh-

    Oooops, betcha' it did not register, because I forgot the *dreaded* Word Verification. -pout- -pout- -pout-

    Hugs and ♥'s...
    'Cause Valentine Day is coming!

  4. Mmmm, as long as you have Comment Verification Setting on, and you read comments, before you Publish them, do you really need to make your Dear Readers go through the Jumping-Through-Hoops which Comment Verification can be?

    Just wondering. 'Cause some people don't even know that they have Word Ver. setting on...

    Hugs and ♥'s...
    'Cause Valentine Day is coming!

  5. Looks like loads of fun, for a snow loving dog! For Ron, maybe not so much.

    All erosion or maybe some sea water rising for this (ha ha ha) global warming?

  6. We have a feeling you get LOTS of attention every day
    Benny & Lily

  7. What a lovely day you had. The waves crashing in look exciting. Does it get warm enough for all three of you to swim? It looks pretty cold at the moment.
    PS Thanks to the well wishes, I'm doing good.

  8. That's some beautiful scenery and it looks like you had a great time exercising all those birthday goodies off. Sad that the beach is disappearing, but, I suppose that's the way of nature. Things are constantly changing and a catastrophic event like that hurricane can set off consequences that last for years.

  9. So cute! I love your header picture. You're ball must have been lost in one gigantic snow drift to get that covered!! Love these pictures.... how beautiful.

  10. Oh wow, Sophie! We live so far away from the water, we've never seen the snow near the ocean like that. You are blessed to live in such a beautiful area with your dads who are willing to take you out to enjoy them!


  11. Love the new header....A Snowdoodle!

    Glad you found the ball. Great pictures.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  12. Oh what beeeeeautiful fotos of you girl! I'll let yo haves da water cuz I don't likes it but I can't wait to see you romping in it.


  13. Mitch loves to bury his whole head in the snow too, Sophie.
    Your crashing wave pictures are awesome!

    Love ya lots
    Maggie and Mitch

  14. It does look cold Sophie, but you certainly have a way of warming up my heart!! :-))

  15. It looks like you had a blast!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  16. You always have such amazing pictures, and always look to be having so much fun running and playing.

  17. awww what a fun day you had, girl!! did you ever find your ball? i'm sure the dads have another one or two for you!

  20. Sophie, you are one great big beautiful girl...and your Dad is a great photographer...I've never been fortunate to visit this area but is so beautiful...

  21. That last shot is my favorite Sophie. How lucky you are to have such beautiful beaches nearby.

  22. Wow, Sofie! You really know how to live!

  23. I'll bet you were having so much fun you didn't even feel the cold. Daddy Ron might have...

  24. You are such a lucky dog, Sophie. I can't imagine that a baseball diamond was out in the water... How'd they play in the water? Just kidding...

    I love the photo of the snowbank with the wave crashing behind it. And, your snowy banner photo is spectacular!

    I'm glad that you have so much joy, fun, and love in your life. You look so happy!

    What a sublime spectacle of wild, icy and wonderful ocean.....white sparkling snow... Sophie in fun action......!!!
