Yesterday morning dawned bright and clear without a cloud in the sky. The weather was perfect. So, Mom said we'd start the day with my first trip to the ocean. I cannot begin to tell you how exciting it was! Mom took my long line and my hiking collar and I wore my harness.
As we walked over the sand dune and I inhaled the ocean air, I can't begin to tell you how the energy coursed through my body. I just wanted to run and play in the waves forever. Mom caught a picture of the first time I saw the ocean. After I played for a while, we started to walk up the beach. We stopped and Mom shook the sand out of her sandals and put my prettier collar back on along with my regular leash.
After that, we did some shopping. I found all kinds of great swag. Mom got me the greatest new bed that I can't wait to try out, but we have to get pillows for it when we get home. I also drooled over the sting ray skin collar at Long Dog Leather again, but Mom said it was too expensive. I hope I can wear her down before somebody else buys it. We got a little tired, so we came back to the hotel and did a little resting.
