Paw prints in the sand..


Our anniversary celebration yesterday concluded with Doug and Carlie coming to the campground for dinner..

We had steak, prawns, Caesar salad, potatoes and Vanilla Bean Cake for dessert..

It was nice to have some company other than the ‘four-legged kind’..

Three lovely cards and a box of ‘Cookies by George’ rounded out the evening..


..we just want to say thank you to everyone who wished us a ‘Happy Anniversary’!..hard to believe that 31 years have past..

Today was a quiet day..

Tucker didn’t get out of bed until almost 11..


yes, that is a ‘stinky boy’..snuggled into the pillows..

Laundry Tucker..

2012_08_23 did ‘rain’ ..for a few minutes..but then the sun came out..yet again..



..there was a few walks on the beach..



..sure nice to have it all to ourselves..just me and my ‘wet golden boy’..


..the only ‘paw prints in the sand’ were Tucker’s ..

2012_08_232 is so peaceful to walk along the  edge of the water with no noise, no people, no other dogs..


just the sound of four paws running and splashing in the water..


..the blackberries are looking ripe for the picking?


.. and the sunset tonight..


..and my tired ‘boy’ waiting to go to bed..


..our last full day just me and the ‘sunshine boy’ is done..…even though we are only about 20 minutes from home..sure feels like ‘we’ are on vacation..


  1. It's really amazing the stuff we let these guys do cause we just love them so much. Years ago I might have had a different aspect but now..ah who cares, it will wash. When you have lost a furkid you realize that here and now is most important. When they're gone you wonder why the heck you didn't let them do this or's just not important. Enjoy them NOW.

  2. What a fantastic place to get away to!

  3. Tucker looks "tuckered out!" I'm spending a week with my Golden grand dog. She's a sweet girl too, but doesn't like water!

  4. So glad you had a Happy Anniversary!
    I'm sure Tucker was so glad to have you all to
    himself this week, as well as the beach and swimming, too. :)
    Enjoy the weekend back home!

  5. Sounds like a perfect time with your Tucker. You mean dogs aren't supposed to take over the bed??? Sure could have fooled us. lol

  6. Whoops. Late to the party. Happy Anniversary. (a day late)
    Guess I dozed off there.

    1. Even though you're 20 minutes from home, you could be a million miles away. It's the break that refreshes the soul.

  7. I'm glad you didn't have to spend your anniversary alone--that's one of the advantages of camping close to home!

  8. Those blueberries look good! With your title, I was expecting a poem:)

  9. The beauty of a park close to the city is that it gives you an oasis in an urban setting.

  10. Sounds like just what you two/three love.

  11. Happy Anniversary Sue, 31 years is an achievement to be proud of! Looks to me like all enjoyed themselves, especially Tucker. I really laughed when I saw him sleeping in his bed.

  12. Happy Anniversary. You were at a good RV place to enjoy it.

    Nice touch with the paw prints in the sand.
