It's Still Summer Here!

Here in the land of eternal summer, it's pretty much always a beach day. Lucky for us, it's been close to perfect weather recently with very calm seas. This is our usual beach which is only a 10 minute walk from our house.

Testing the water

The water was deliciously warm after the very hot weather we've had and even Lilly was quick to get right in. They strolled along the shore for a while cooling themselves off while I looked for sea glass.

Roxy tried fishing

...and pointing

She's fascinated by fish! I think she might actually catch one some day.

Then they started playing around with each other and Lilly had to have a massive shake to get the water out of her face. So silly!

Lilly had to do a little posing. She thinks she's such a princess!

Is this my good side?

Did you remember the sunscreen?

It was starting to get seriously hot and the dogs were looking tired so we decided to head home. I just want to mention sunscreen again for all you white and light colored dogs. It's very important to use it! We use the kids waterproof kind and rub it all over Lilly's face and neck when we're out in the sun for any length of time.

Heading up the hill towards our house. Aren't the colors of the houses beautiful?!

Almost home! Time for a quick rinse to get the salt water off and then....a SIESTA!

**for those of you wondering about sea glass, here's what we got on that short outing.


  1. Oh wow! I've never seen 'real' sea glass before - only heard about it...is it glass that's been thrown into the sea that's been smoothed by the waves?

    You live in such a beautiful place - the colours of everything are just wonderful. The dogs looked like they really enjoyed themselves!


  2. Thanks Hsin-Yi.
    Yes, you're right about the sea glass. We have lots of it. I love to collect it and I also make jewelry with the nicer pieces. Maybe you have it too. Look in the rockier areas along the shore.

  3. Love the pictures of the beach. Wish we had beaches near where we live. What fun it must be to play on the beaches and in the water with the dogs! You're lucky to live in such a beautiful place.

  4. Dear PR Gang,
    O! We are so jealous! Those beaches look so serendipitous!
    And sea glass - my little hoomans would love that!
    Sun cream.... don't even mention sun cream it is eeeevvvviillllll! Well actually it is quite tasty, it only becomes evil when it being put on my most delicate snooter. You must be very brave Lily!

  5. That was an excellent post and took me far from my own world... Looks like the pair love the beach. Good to catch up with them :)

    My mission today is to go looking around our rocky headlands for sea glass!
