This week, I visited Taylor Beach with my friends Pat and Lisa, and their dogs Cosmo, Lexi and Luke. It was a perfect late winter's day - blue sky, sunshine, and a blustery, chilly wind. The day was so clear we could see Mount Baker to the south east, and the mountains of the Olympic Peninsula across the ocean.
|Hey mom, you gotz sunbursts on you!|
|Child on a beach|
|Hurry up, Auntie Jean!|
|Oooh! That's a lotta water!|
|Luke ran and ran and ran!|
|And I watched the waves roll in, casting their foamy skirts upon the sand.|
Luke is a social butterfly, making friends with every dog he meets. This day, he met a chocolate lab who shared Luke's passion for sticks. They spent a few minutes chasing sticks together and trading them back and forth, and then the lab's owner tossed a big stick into the ocean for the water loving lab. Luke decided he'd let his new friend retrieve that one!
|I'll just wait here while you get that!|
But as soon as the lab was back on shore, the game resumed:
They reminded me of a caption I saw recently on a similar photo:
|Branch manager Choc Lab, with assistant branch manager Luke!|
|Luke and friend run off into the sunlight|
By now, Lexi was tired of walking and wanted to go home. Cosmo was quite happy to keep walking, especially given the lovely (ahem!) snack of horse poops he found.
|What? Horse poops are da bomb!|
|He's disgusting! I'm beautiful! |
Boy dogs drool, girl dogs rule!
|I CAN'T H E A R YOU!|
|Gorgeous Luke in sunshine|
|Hey mom, ya make a better door than a window!|
Move - yer blockin' mah view!
And then it was time to go. What a great day we'd had!
|That was fun, mom.|
Can we meet up with these friends again soon?
