A day at the beach…

Just a typical summer Saturday in the Outer Banks as you look to the right and the wave of traffic heads north,  and you look to the left and the other wave heads south.   Lola and I waited patiently to cross the road to get to the other side,  knowing the beach was straight ahead.   No impatience in her,   no pulling on the leash,  just a grin up to me saying “We’re in no hurry,  are we ?”

Camera’s were clicking as we passed the Nights in Rodanthe house,  almost as blue as the ocean ahead. But we did not care about that either. There was a lump of sand with our name on it,  biscuits for breakfast,  and new smells all around.  Her nose was covered in sand in no time, content to walk no further and just stop and look around. This dog is smart as a whip, knowing she did not need to go any further than where we were to get what she was looking for. Blue sky, clean air, blue ocean, and biscuits for brunch.

Today’s lesson :  Appreciate the things you have in front of you , the small and simple ones,  and don’t go off looking for other things,  when you have biscuits right in front of you.

As we turned to leave,  a big wave came up and got us both wet..  She looked at me with a grin and another lesson,  never turn your back on the ocean !
