What Wesley Did: Day One

We arrived at the shore early Friday morning. We left from northern NJ at something like 4am so we could arrive at around 7-ish and have three full days. Chris drove, I sort of semi-slept and Wesley spent the ride comatose in my lap. If there is one thing this dog does, it's travel well; He just sleeps the whole time.

So we get there, get our stuff in and out to the beach Wesley and I go (Chris stayed in and crashed out after the drive for awhile.)!

First thing on Wesley's list of things to do at the beach?

Pee on all the things.

This post thing? It's mine now.

Thing he forgot to do while looking for more things to pee on and smelling all the smells? 

Watch for the incoming ocean water.

AH! It's coming!

It didn't take him to long to find a lone seagull to chase after.

Hey you - bird! Get back here!

It was pretty windy that day, so he took some time to enjoy the feeling of it on his face. Behind him to the left you can see the Wildwood boardwalk.

We went back inside for awhile after about an hour to check in with Chris. I brought along his favorite Skineez raccoon toy and we had a good game of tug and fetch.

Come on Mom! Take 'Coon and let's tug some more!

Wesley took some time to lay in the warm sun puddle in front of the balcony sliding door. He always looks like a  little frog with his rear legs flattened out like that! 

Who you calling' froggy, Mom?

With the fall season the days are, while beautiful, far to short and so evening came much to fast. While it was still light enough out we went out to play and explore the beach a bit more.

The tide had gone out, so it was fun to walk the water's edge and see what had been deposited on the shore. 

Lots of little shells and things to smell and check out.
I am so very glad for photography - for the ability to be able to freeze moments in time like this. While there's nothing incredibly special about the moment, it was still a beautiful one with the way the light and colors were.

And come on, isn't Wesley just a great little model for me to aim a camera at? :)
