After several days of dreary, very damp weather, we awoke today to a light breeze, soft clouds in a blue sky, and SUNSHINE! Well, actually, it was dark when we awoke. In fact, one could say it was the middle of the night. Eddie and Allie just don't get this whole time change thing, and I've been unable to persuade them that the new 4:30 AM is just a bit too early even for me.
But when the light finally emerged, it came with sunshine and white puffy clouds and patches of blue. Eddie and I headed off to the beach, where we ran into others walking their dogs,
And crows out for a paddle in the rain pools,
|Whatcha looking at, Lady?|
Ain'tcha never seen a bird wading before?
And November gladiolus trying bravely to unfurl and wave its beautiful flowers down by the seawalk,despite looking a little the worse for wear from yesterday's steady rain.
We would have headed to the park but I had commitments for the rest of the day. I'm hoping for good weather tomorrow....and for several days. Georgi and Sadie B arrived this evening to stay for a few days, and nice weather always makes multi-pawed households so much easier to manage!
Georgi headed straight for her favourite bed and settled in for a snooze.
Sadie B., who is a very talkative girl (not barking, but woo-woo-woodling as if carrying on a fascinating conversation), has been trying to persuade me to go play ball with her even if it is pitch black out there. When talking didn't work, she climbed up on my lap and washed my face. Personality plus, that girl is. And very persuasive. Hopefully she will settle for an evening walk instead.
|Excuse me, Auntie Jean, I'm trying to tell you something!.|
(I really must try to get her vocalizations on video!)
Eddie is happy because they arrived with lots of treats to share. Allie, on the other hand, is glaring at Sadie B and muttering something about "Just wait until you go to sleep, dog!"
Animals are so much more entertaining than television. Of course, almost anything is more entertaining than television.
Here's hoping the morning will bring another day like this one:
