MARTINIQUE BEACH TREK


I love to visit Martinique Beach in the dead of winter no less.
Yes, it's cold, freezing, chilly but down-right exhilarating!
(I'm pretending to be a hieroglyph in this picture.
Do you think it works?)


 Da lum Da lum 
Da lum Da lum
this is my inner sound 
as I begin my gallop down the beach.



Now you know why I am so focussed
and why this beach rates super high on my list of faves.


After traversing a huge rock outcrop the smooth beach becomes evident
and that only means more Mr. Orangie chasing.
Hello, guys....um...could your hurry it up!?!


 Yes, now you believe me don't you.
Huge rock outcrop covered in frozen ice, salty ice I might add.
Treacherous I might hasten to point out!


But here is my Martinique Beach.
Oh yes, I do covet this place and if any one shows up
I make sure they obey the rules,
Mother Nature's rules.


Since we are the only warm blooded bodies
daring to walk the beach
I figure Mr. Orangie needs a work out.


First catch on the beach,
I circle around for more.


I do stretch out when I run
now you can see my luxurious chocolate coat
with blond accents.
(Thank you DNA)


Number 2 catch
floating in the air too!
(Imagine if we could fly)


Number 3 ~~ straight up!
Eye ~ Nose ~ Mr. Orangie


OK, enough play ~~ let's get down to some serious walking and sea glass searching.


This pebbled area is always a goldmine in sea glass.


I told you that they would find some glass.
I did hear them muttering about not finding any cobalt blue, red or orange today at all.


Oh well, each to their own as I always say.
It takes all kinds to make our beautiful world go 'round 
and whether it be humans seeking for pieces of broken glass
or me staring down Mr. Orangie ~~
Life is Good!!

  4. Rocks covered in salt water ice, looks dangerous. Imagine worth the trek to get to the nice beach though! Have a good day!

    1. Hi Sharon ~~ yes the ocean blue leaves loads of salt on the shore so everything tastes salty. Sophie naturally licks everything too and gets in trouble when eating the seaweed. She throws up everytime in the middle of the night. No smiles there of course.
      The beach rocks need to be carefully manouevred so no one falls meaning everyone.
      Hopefully Sophie will allow me to shoe more pictures of her trek to DOODLENIRVANA!!

    1. DOODLE BANGLES love to sing ~~~
      All the old paintings on the tombs
      They do the sand dance don't you know
      If they move too quick (oh whey oh)
      They're falling down like a domino ~~~~~~~~~

  7. Love the shots of you and Mr. Orangie, Sophie ~ especially when you're floating in the air! I've been catching up on your world ~ again! I'm so outta control right now! Loved your "kinky boots!" At first I thought it was Ron playing with some new editing tool! But it makes sense ~ sometimes you have to cover those tootsies. When we were living in the northern bush, we had little fur booties for our dachshund Gretchen. Mom made them out of an old coat. Loved the video of you eating snow ~ something Gracie and Rufus love to do too! Nova Scotia, Colorado ~ It's a beautiful world we live in! I hope that you are enjoying a great Saturday! "Hi!" to the dads.

    1. I'll pass on SUPERDOODLELICKS to the guys for you because I know how inappropriate that would be for you to extend personally, you know!!
      Winks!!
      Yes, the booties are good for the day when protection is so very necessary like last weekend. Ouchie cold and sticking snow create havoc with my toes.
      Loved your recent post from the doggies POV ~~ you live in the most beautiful place ever, really you do!!

      Cheers to all!

    1. We don't mind the cold at all, I guess it's because we are so used to it.

      It just takes a few times of pushing through the first moments of "COLD" then LIFE is great!

      Cheers!

    1. Oh I'm super careful with the rocks, but when I run a lot I have a tendency to dip my feet and belly into the ocean to cool off. I did do this again ~~ only once though!
