Water...my Life Force!

It's a pretty safe bet that I'll be in the water from now until next fall!

I wend my way along the water's edge so easily.

I'm pretty good at lifting my paws out of the water and carefully placing them back in 
as I survey the beach.

When the tide recedes it creates a bit of a drag
pulling me into the water beyond.

The waves are mighty today
however where I'm situated the ferocity of the water
is not as obvious.

See...my beach is not as wild as it is on the other side.

I took a small diversion hike up over the sand dune today
to see how much sand has disappeared this winter.
Many, many metres of sand have been gouged out and 
dragged into the ocean.

I do worry about my beloved beach and hope that next winter
isn't a tough one.

There are still paths to follow with lots of grass and evergreen trees.
Each year though this land is chewed up and spit out literally.
Well, I guess I'll make the best of my visits now.


  1. What a lucky dog, to have this to look forward to every day! Enjoy, Sophie!!

  2. Beautiful, beautiful place you have to hang out! Wish we were there to enjoy it with you, Sophie! We love the water too (and get to go to the coast sometimes!)

  7. Wow - what a fabulous beach! I'm so jealous as is my dog, Oscar, who spends his entire life in the lake as soon as the ice has melted...

  8. Beautiful place you have there!!!

    With the exception of Kaiser, here at home we all love water!

  11. Such beautiful photos Sophie. You're one lucky labradoodle! Ros and Oscar

  12. Oh Sophie, you look like you are having a wonderful time in an absolutely beautiful place. I would fly over and introduce you to Naughty George, but he would probably bite you in the face! The git.

  13. Oh Annie...I can take care of myself...bring it on Naughty George!

  14. Bet there's something new every time you walk along your beaches.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

  15. There is definitely some Lab in that Doodle!

  16. I am so envious of your trips to the beach, Sophie. Thank you for sharing such amazing photos of the ocean for those of us living in landlocked areas of the country!

  17. Love, love love the new header! That's a happy Sophie.

  18. We certainly don't take this beach accessibility for granted, but some day it will be changed drastically and look totally different. Thus is Mother Nature.

  19. Lovely photos and so invigorating!
    Sophie - tell your Local council or 'powers that be' to plant more vegetation to help stop erosion.

  20. I'm afraid Mother Nature is in complete charge...she can be so tough sometimes!

  21. You were made for the beach! :)

  22. Sophie
    I get a little afraid when I think of you out in the mighty ocean,,, even if it is beautiful

  23. your beach sure is beautiful. We like the trails along the sand
