WINTRY BEACH TREASURES



 I don't know about you 
but to sprawl prostrate on the fresh white snow
is my idea of heaven.


The weather has definitely set anchor
and is dealing us a major cold blow
 very early this year.


No matter, I still keep searching for the ever-elusive Doodle discovery.


The extensive number of rocks on the beach
just adds to the excitement of finding something that is edible 
or just plain sniffable.


This seaweed always garners an extra sniff, lick and munch
if "THEY" don't catch me.


I don't know about you 
but seaweed is consumed by many nowadays ~~~


so what's the big deal about me devouring a whole bunch?


It's nice and clean after being dashed to death by the wintry waves.


Well, if "THEY" want their way,
I'll just keep true to my quizzical nature.
After all I am a
 DOODLE EXPLORER TO THE CORE!!

  1. Sophie, Franklin is worried you'll get cold. He's never seen snow. Please tell him you're okay and snow can be fun and your dads don't keep you outside too long.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. Franklin ~~ I jump around so much there's no chance I'd get cold, really!!

      I'd sleep outside in a blinding storm if they let me ~~ no chance I guess.

      I am so used to snow and winter temps in my neck of the woods ~~ it makes me perky all over!

    1. If you did, then, well, I believe the world would be coming to an end or at least shifting!

  3. Snow to the water, stones of grey, seaweed in glorious orange, what more could a doodle girl want? It looks like a very cold spell at your place. Greetings to all, Jean.

    1. The wind is what makes a Doodle cold, for that matter anyone!!

      The humans just quickly scamper from the car to the shore, click a few pictures and zip back to the warm vehicle.

      Sheesh, what about me? I have to sniff and "Doodle" my thing!

      Sophie loves to please everyone and little ol' me too!

      You are so kind!

  8. Sophie dahling! It is the sodium content. After that seaweed has been soaking in that sea water, it is way too high in sodium! "They" are only looking out for your best interest.

    1. Sodium does make you super thirsty after snitchin' some seaweed ~~ I drink a boat-load ever time.

      Maybe that's why they don't want me to eat because then I'll wake up in the middle of my Doodle Dreams and beg to go out!!

    1. Snow is always the best time because it perks you up and makes you move AND cleans your fur at the same time!

    1. HIGH 5 SAGE!

      I love the snow and pools of water ~~~ don't tell anyone but I ran into one today!!

      I was wet and I didn't even care!

      My Dads did though!

      Oops!!

      Right now I'm curled up snoozing with Jimbo!

  14. The beach in winter has such a stark beauty. I LOVE that second shot.

    1. Yes, that picture does look cold and stark ~~ it is slightly adjusted with some tuning and when I did that the whites popped!

  15. Beautiful photos! I especially love that last one. You look good on the snow, Sophie, with such a contrast between light and dark. And you make it look like fun. I suddenly feel like getting out there and making snow angels...something I have done in many, many years!

    1. Now that would be SUPER DOODLE FUN, snow angels ~~~ once the rain stops and we get some more flakes though!

      The fog had rolled in and life is somewhat ethereal today!!

  18. Ron and Sophie -- the beach has it's own special beauty in winter. Even on a gray winter day it is a beautiful place to be. I think I'll have to pass on the seaweed-- glad Sophie girl thinks it's a treat!

    Merry Christmas to you all--

  19. Hi Y'all!

    Oh, my Humans have fed seaweed to the horses for decades now. The horses eat dried seaweed. I understand they have it for dogs too. Maybe they'll get some for me!

    Enjoy your winter beauty!

  20. Wow, Soph! What a spectacular day at the beach. Lovely Jack Frost pictures in your last post, and now these! I'm not much on munching seaweed, although I used to have my third graders try dulse a lot of years! Now that's a real Nova Scotian treat! LOL! In my mind, it's a serious yuck!
