Eighty Degrees and Barely a Breeze

Woohoo!  We’re going to the beach!


Actually, we were going to the bay, but it’s all the same to Wally and LuLu.  We always have this spot to ourselves since everyone else is riding the dunes or playing in the waves at the real beach.  There’s plenty to play with here, though.




Wally’s waiting for us to catch up so we can play under the old trestle.


Rich has treats.


Guess where they are.


LuLu got the first one.


But, don’t worry, Wally got his, too.  That’s him with his head down the hole.


Back in the sunshine.  LuLu’s got her bark face on again.  She spotted a lone fisherman crossing the trestle.


A good time was had by all.  I’m so happy to see spring!  Have a great day!


  1. Wonderful photos. My favorite one is the last one. Makes me miss Olivia. Glad you are having nice weather.

  2. Oh goodness what wonderful pictures! What a fantastic way to spend time and enjoy the pleasures of being owned by goldens! Makes my heart smile!

  3. How fabulous! They do really know how to enjoy life. It's great that you can all get out and enjoy the beautiful weather. I'm so glad I finally got my covered patio installed. It makes all the difference to my outside furry babies with the storms we've been having the last few days.

  4. hahaha! Don'tcha love watching them play? We used to take our dogs to the bay as well - it was fun watching them run Way OUT when the tide was low, digging in the sand. One of the best parts is knowing that the salt water is good for their skin and fur. Come on home, have a bath and they looked great! Thanks for sharing your "happiness" photos, Leslie. Wish I could have been there, too! hugs, de

  5. Thanks for a sweet way to begin my Saturday, Leslie! I smiled at these and said, "Awwwww!" throughout the whole show. Thanks for sharing these with us!!!

  6. Hi Leslie
    I dont often comment but I do read your blog daily. Your pictures today were so touching and happy. I loved them. you can feel the happiness and love in them

  7. How neat to have a special place that they can run around free, they are lucky pups :)

  8. Although we only have cats, I thoroughly enjoy your blog and the beautiful pictures that you take. Thanks so much for sharing as it really brightens my day.

  9. Adogables! Love seeing pictures of Lulu and Wally.

    Ter ;)

  10. Looks like they had a blast! What gorgeous weather we are having in the PNW! Hope it's a sign that we're actually going to have a summer this year!

  11. Lovely to catch up with your 'family' at the beach. Great that you are having lovely weather. Spending time with our family in The Netherlands, but this week not beach weather very much indoor together time. Hugs, Ursula

  12. What a wonderful outing - wish I could tag along. Can't tell you how much I enjoy these pictures of your "kids"

  13. Leslie, I can just about feel the warmth of the sun through your pictures. Wish we had it. we have cloudy, rainy, cool weather. Your pictures always bring smiles to my face. I look forward to Wally and Lulu pictures and your narration. Thanks for blessing my day.

  14. Leslie,
    You REALLY, REALLY need to start publishing some of these photos in a book! Your photography is as beautiful as your cards! You take the most amazing candid shots I've seen & it is a shame not to have them published for everyone to share. Of course, having 2 beautiful "stars" to photograph always helps!

    Happy Mother's Day!

  15. Those 2 are so wonderfully spoiled! What fun to have your own private area to run and play. It just does a soul good.

  16. What a great way to end my Saturday evening. Looks like your 'babes' had a great time today. As always they bring a smile to my face. Thanks for sharing Leslie!

  17. What Beautiful Photos, your babies always make me smile they are so happy and playful just like me two.Thanks for Sharing Leslie
    Take care

    Sherri had the right idea - to publish these photos in a book. Everything is perfect - the two most adorable subjects in the world, having fun, exciting games, sometimes in repose, a skilled photographer with the knack of writing the perfect captions. I think a smart editor would gobble this right up. Today's photos are so fun. They never fail to bring a smile to my face.

  19. Oh how your photos always make my day. Feelin' poorly, but they brought a smile to my face.
    Like Francie's comment above a calendar editor would surely love to have these.

  20. Oh my goodness these are darling photo's. They sure do look like they are having the time of their lives.

  21. Such beautiful and fun furbabies! Love the "treat" pictures and the expressions of the one not getting a treat at that moment! So expresssive and precious!

  22. I'm linking this webpage from my private weblog . this has all the usefull data necessary.
