So, I didn’t really make much point of mentioning this on the blog…but Monday was my birthday. Another year older, another year wiser?
Monday happened to be a beautiful day for the beach, so Justin and I decided to take Lucia along with us in the morning/afternoon for some time in the sand and surf. I haven’t really been to the beach much this season so far, so it was definitely a welcome trip.
I love going to the beach during the week. Other beach goers were around, but not many. Our chairs were set up by themselves, and we were able to enjoy a large stretch of the beach without anyone else in sight for the most part. Lucia liked the opportunity to run up and down the beach a few times. Silly girl still doesn’t like to swim for some reason…she will get in the water up to her belly, but won’t go out any farther. She’s done this since she was a puppy; Justin and I can’t figure out why. Come on girl – the water is so blue and pretty! Who wouldn’t want to take a swim in that?!?! Ok, to be fair – I don’t really ever like going out too deep in the water myself. Marine life scares the crud out of me. When a fish swims into my leg, my skin crawls…and even though you think it would be cool for a dolphin to swim up close to you in open water, it isn’t (just enjoy them from a safe distance, please). And: it is currently sting ray season. Don’t get me started on those…and don’t forget to shuffle your feet, everyone!
And now, at almost 5 years old, my hopes at having a swimmer on my hands to play fetch with in the water are officially dashed on the rocks. I give up. Plus, she doesn’t even like to fetch, so fetching in the water at the beach would be a really tall order. Lucia, I still love you anyway.
Do you like to visit the beach/pool in the summer? Any other pet lovers take their pups to the beach too?
