A lazy Sunday afternoon

looking north

On Sunday afternoon we took Shelby for a drive out to Foxton Beach for a run and a swim. It's 30 minutes from home.
It was a super afternoon, the sand was warm through my toes, a gentle breeze blew through my hair, good company and miles and miles of open beach.

looking south

Shelby had a ball, running about in the water, dog paddling through the waves and
chasing the noisy seagulls.

At the end of our walk, we decided to buy fish and chips for tea and we sat on the beach and ate them. Shelby was so excited, so many doggy delights in one single day!

Love the beach shot! We spent a little time at the beach this past weekend while on Vancouver Island, and Ike just had a ball:)

North AND South look wonderful and warm sand sounds dreamy!
Came home to lovely sunshine, but no warm sand ;)
Something about the sea...it's so restful and restorative in any season!
Hope you had a Happy St Paddy's Day Lassie!
