Skye’s (holi)day

They usually start early.  We open up the sliding door and let her out to stretch her legs while we try to have a leisurely morning cup of tea and some breakfast.

Then its “Well, are you coming?”

Okay.  Let’s start our day.

We drove for close to an hour to Honeymoon Island where there is a portion of beach that is dog-friendly.

Of course, dog-friendly at this beach means that there are plenty of signs saying that dogs must always be kept on a leash, no longer than six feet, and not allowed to be in the water untethered.  Oh well.  Skye had to go in and get that frisbee! (see below)

… and then had to have the salt washed off!  NO!!!!  Please don’t murder me with that hose!

There, that wasn’t so bad, was it?  Let’s celebrate with some more frisbee…


Then we had to go and have some refreshment.  Skye chilled.

Skye has been mesmerized by the tiny lizards that scramble out of the way no matter where you’re walking.

“What was that thing?”

And what is that cat doing?  Strangely, the cat and cormorant are trying to pretend each other is not there.

The end of the day brought high winds and much rain.  Skye doesn’t like wind.  She curled up on the couch and pretended it wasn’t happening, while shivering under her protective towel …

* Through the magic of editing, not to mention some creative license, these pictures were actually taken at DeSoto Beach, one that *does* allow dogs to be off-leash.  Skye would never break the law….

    1. It is always nice to have them with us when we work, isn’t it? I can’t wait till spring when we can leave the door open all day and Skye can go in and out at will…
