Another Glorious Day

Monday was a Public Holiday. It was hot and sunny and such a glorious day that nobody should stay indoors….not even Marley and Jasper.

We headed down to our favourite dog walking beach for the afternoon, for a walk….a swim….and some fishing.

Marley and Jasper were so excited to be meeting some new friends along the way.

We kept them on their lead until after 4pm…..they’re very law abiding doggies.

What can be better than a game of ball for Jasper?
A game of ball on the beach of course!
 ...and lots of swimming with the children….

We watched the sail boats leaving the mariner

…and take to the open ocean…

..the other great thing about walking along the open ocean beach is….
…no more leash…yeehar..off I go!

What good little puppies we have…they never strayed further than a few metres from us.

Marley was never quite sure where he should be without his lead…he would stay right by my side ever looking up to make sure I was still there….so cute!

After playing in the sand both dogs rolled on the rocks….
…and shook themselves off….

We discovered a sea slug moving along slowly through the shallow water

And watched a fearless lone surfer take to the crashing waves

We searched for treasures among the rocks….

…even Jasper wanted in on the action…

We got very wet…

..very, very, very wet!

As the day wore on we jumped back in the car…

all tired and soggy and full of sand.

Daddy took us to a great fishing spot…

...and we fished until sunset…

...while Mummy took more photos of boats and other interesting things…

..and Jasper and Marley had a well earned rest…

…and when the lights came on…

…and the moon shone high in the sky…

...we headed for home..all tired out!


  1. He Jasper - he Marley - what a long and wonderful - exciting day - I love to watch both of you through (on) Frauchen´s Lappentopf (PC)
    Yes water, seaside, boats, sand and waves - what more needs a dog and also humans to have fun fun fun. But most of all - the marvelous weather - it´s like a great holiday.
    The Pics are great - and now I can imagine to live at the seaside for a long long time.
    Me and my humans are so glad to go often to our cottage at the northsea in Holland. Every hour there makes me happy. No more pain in the knees or so.....;-))
    Thank you soooooooo much for you german Comment - not bad - I think it´s running better than the school english from Frauchen.
    Have more such funny days - I don´t know where you live - but I think it´s a wonderful place!
    Since next visit
