One of Henri’s favorite things to do is wander on the beach. We live only three blocks away but I’m sure if he could speak, he’d tell you he doesn’t get to go enough. Also depending on whether there is anyone around, he may or may not get to go off his leash. In case you were wondering, for Henri, leash=major BUMMER. And for me too really. He is a terrible walker!
In the picture above though, he runs unencumbered through a leash-free sandy paradise- Ocean Beach’s dog beach. It was a beautiful day and for some reason unknown to me to this day because I am still not an intentionally very good photographer, all my pictures turned out stunningly great (if you don’t think the above is a lovely picture, just don’t tell me) and still they are some of my favorite pictures I have ever taken of Henri. This one just makes me smile because he seems so happy and free.
Yesterday Liz decided we should go to the beach. It is finally starting to be sunny and with daylight savings time, it feels very summery.
Of course I am always ready for a trip to the beach. It’s pretty much my favorite place, although the park is a close second. Or any walk, really.
Here I am with the famous Hotel Del waaay in the background:
It was pretty hot but we decided to walk to the end of the beach because I like to do that. I met a few dogs along the way:
But I wasn’t feeling too playful. I’m a bit discriminating when it comes to other dogs. Usually I like other smushy faced dogs, and I tend to like girls better than boys. There are exceptions of course, and Liz has never been able to figure me out completely. I’m just more of a people dog.
So we kept walking, towards Point Loma:
That is it in the distance. This is one of Liz’s favorite beaches in all of San Diego. Maybe you can see why.
I like to walk to the end, where the beach becomes a military-only beach, to sniff around the rocks down there.
I have sneaked across a few times, but the guard finds me so charming I don’t get into trouble. Only with Liz!
And then we headed back! It was a lovely and relaxing time.
Of course, when we got back I had to face a bath. But now I’m nice and clean, and snuggling in my bed:
And quite frankly I’m ready for Liz to stop taking pictures of me!
