Every day is different when living along a coast.
Some days it's super sunny and clear,
while others can be foggy and misty.

Doesn't matter one iota to me
because Mr. Orangie 
is so much more visible on a foggy day
since these days seem to out number the sunny days
well, I consider myself 
one Lucky Doodle Dandy!!

Sometimes I feel like I hear the music from JAWS,

even while these people are practicing during their class ~~~

SO, my mantra is
~~~ Focus on the shoreline ~~~

and since
 I'm a fast and strong swimmer, 
I'm in and out 
like sauerkraut.

Jim, you are sending me back into that water.
Didn't you hear that JAWS music?
No respect
I tell you.
No respect!

Hi Everyone ~~
We, the trilogy, dubbed by Louise at "Standing into Danger"
went for our evening constitution last night
and we are so HAPPY we did.

The clouds were all but gone 
leaving some remarkable shades of 
pinks, goldens and 
purple greys.

This is a view of my excitement of making it to the beach
and having so much sand to run and hop on.
(The video isn't as clear as Ron wanted but you'll get the overall feeling)

Here's a still of the perfect orange (from Mr. Orangie's World).

"Hey, who is that away down there?"

"Nobody I know"

"Oh well, at least Mr. Orangie is safe
"the Trilogy"
 a super refreshing beach trek
with loads of pictures.

Waiting so patiently for the 2013 Pride Parade to come around the corner
(between the brick building and the blue building)
with Jim hugging me tightly.

Yoh, so sleek and a guy too.

All sizes from all directions at times.

Doodle with a Super cut looking like she's blowing a red balloon bubble.

Another sharp looking doggy with a super colourful scarf.

On the side lines is fine with me because it was a long walk from what I heard.

Even on the sidewalks dogs everywhere.

A fine looking Boxer  sitting in front of the Smiling Goat Cafe.

Sweetums sashaying  their way down the street.

SOme pulling a little too fast determined to find something.

My cousin Fennie looks like this fine specimen!

Being carried is the best way to to get around if you are a tiny itty bitty.

Look at the smile on his face.
Everyone was having a great time.

Even this lovely bunch of coconuts ~~~ that's Jim, Mary(Jim's sis), Sophie Doodle and Michael 

Mary and I love to make the same face all the time.

I had to show you this horse.
The rider and her horse were in the parade last year.
Nice looking aren't they.

Two horses handled very nicely with me so close.

RCMP and scantily clad vehicle behind.
Your Yin and Yang for today folks! 

 I watched this little girl make nice with this giant RCMP Bear.

I saw that happen quickly
and then in front of me was this beautiful Greyhound
decked out for the dance after the parade.
Check out the toenails,
everyone in rainbow colours.

so graceful

This feller had a pale blue eye, seriously.

This one was taking off, not landing 
and was a good sport about all this.

This Doodle was decorated and ready to Doodle Hop!

This really was a beautiful tale swooshing by me.
I think they were ready to finish this long walk.

Just wanted to let you know that I had a grand time
meeting all kinds of new people and doggies,
but I think sandwiched in between Mary and Michael
was my favourite moment.

Sauntering through my Garden

Sauntering in my garden
checking out everything to make sure
all's fine ~~~~

Clematis, Venosa Violacea, in full swing

Bloodgood Japanese Maple left and Kousa Dogwood right
are really spectacular

1000's of flowers this year
Thank you Mother Nature

The video is 9 minutes but Sophie said she 
wanted to slowly go through the garden
so that you could get a better feel
of our little oasis.

Giant Jack in the Pulpit is taking over.

Hope you liked my garden tour,
Sauntering has become 
my modus opearndi.
I'll see you next
A bientot!

B & W Moment

This photo almost appeared to be a B & W
as Jim and I were strolling the lawn around
The Hydrostone Park.

So Daddy Ron decided to make them all B & W.

A new and interesting view of my Doodle World has emerged.

Hi Jim, I like these lines.

Are we getting close to the bakery?

Phew ~~~ I'm back 
with a little colour in my cheeks !!
