SeaWeed Monster!


As I was galloping down the beach today without a care in the world,
minding my own "busy"ness...
(just look at the video and you'll see I was fetching, dunking and having an all round good laugh)


Teasing is part of my repertoire
 and it is well-known in these parts....


But unbeknowst to me and Ron 
hiding in this huge mound of seaweed
was a monster...
please be careful
don't look at it straight in the eyes!


for it's not just any monster...
it's the horrible
 SeaWeed Monster of Lawrencetown Beach.
Do you see it?
Camouflage can sometimes be good thing!


It's hard to imagine that something as scary as this
could come from these waters.
It's down right terrifying!

  1. Those are some good-sized mounds of sea weed you have there. Hopefully no nippy crabs are hiding inside. :)

    1. It was totally cool to find these mounds waiting for me to lay on. They are so soft and spongy and perfect for a good roll. Sometimes they are a bit stinky, then we ends up getting a bath, not a bubble bath,but at least a good scrubbing!

  3. Hi Sophie! What great post you show us....lovely wheather, sun and the waves rolling in. The video is great , to hear the waves IRL. You suddenly are so near Sweden....
    The monster had to surrender I think :-)

    1. I agree SeaMOnStErS must surrender and give up ~~~ there is only one place they can disappear and that's into the wild blue yonder which just happens to be in front of me!!

    1. HiDeeHo IngerDoodle ~~~

      You may spell my orange ball any way that your heart desires ~~~ I will understand! I've had many variations on a theme ~~~ my 1st spelling was Mr. Orangie with an 'i e' at the end, but with an 'e y' makes if very So. Cal. ~~~ dontcha think!!

      I was very careful that The SeaWeed Monster remained asleep while I rolled on it!!

      It worked!!

  12. Beware Sophie, or the big, bad monster will getcha! (No it won't, i'm pulling your leg.) And you're so clever you'd think of a great escape plan. :) Your beach is one of the most beautiful i've ever seen! No exaggeration. Though the beaches in Maine where i grew up, and the ones here in Oregon where i live now are gorgeous.. there looks to be something very special about yours. I can't quite put my finger on it..

    1. Oh Mary ~~~ you are a sweet heart ~~~

      Maine and Oregon's Beaches are very familiar with my Dads. Maine's beaches are numerous and well-populated but have a special feeling about them. Oregon's beaches, Cannon Beach for example, is unbelievably "stop you in your spot" beauty. They camped on Cannon and some others when they lived on the West Coast in Vancouver, B.C. many years ago.I believe they live on the coast because they have so much salt in their veins.

      I think I know what it is about our beaches you like ~~~~ TA DAAAA ~~~ Sophie Doodle 1/2 Poodle gracing the sands!!

  16. The boys are very jealous of that seaweed monster - much more interesting than the ones they found in Spain last week - which were very smelly and not half as exciting!

    take care

  17. Hey Sophie!
    I've been sitting here watching your video and listening to Jim's Vivaldi post. I know every note of the music, and I love it so much! I did turn it down though, so I could listen to Ron's Nova Scotia accent. I so miss Nova Scotian accents!

    I was waiting for you to soak Ron! It's probably good that you didn't ~ but, it would have added a real comic touch to your video!

    Just for a little I was you chasing in the waves with Vivaldi in my head! Does it get any better than that? Well, maybe when you picked Mr. Orange out of the air! You go, Girl!

    1. We've been listening to Vivaldi all week ~~~ so this post was inspired by Mr. Vivaldi and yes, we've been listening to his 4 Seasons which just put a new lightness on the end of winter.
      A friend blogger, Carol, living in Vancouver CLICK CAROL
      used a YouTube rendition of DeBussey she loved in a post recently, so I found more videos one of them being Vivaldi's Winter. The visual was so interesting that Jim decided to share it. Carol has a very eclectic taste with many pictures and a clever wit. I thought you might like to enter her world.
      Sophie has sprayed me many a time and I have learned to "DUCK" ~~~ so proud of myself ~~~ besides you don't want to her man scream like a woman with a N.S. accent, do you?

      Ron(nie)!!!

    2. You crack me up, Ronnie, constantly! I'm sorry ~ but to be honest, I would have busted up laughing. You probably carry towels in the car for just such an emergency!

    3. I do have a supply in the back of the car for the little darling ~~~ one always has to be prepared for a good soaking ~~~ ocean, rivers, ponds, puddles ~~~ Sophie loves her H2O and loves to share!!
