First time

A new year and a brand new experience. We all went down the beach today and I saw the sea for the very first time. Yes it does sound a bit silly living on an island and waiting so long to see the sea but it was worth the wait.

It was very windy today but the sun came out and it all looked very picturesque. The sea water was a bit chilly as I discovered, well tried to avoid discovering...

It didn't seem to bother Chip but he is a terrier so that probably explains why.

Dare got a bit of a blow dry in all the wind.

And of course Auntie Breeze never got a paw wet.

We went to a beach at a place called Hayling Island which is Hampshire and not to far away to drive. This YouTube video gives you an idea of just how windy it was.

Beach trips are the best, I can't believe you've never been before! But it looks like the dogs don't get to run off leash and wild in the sand like they can here.

Hi there, What a beautiful beach you have! I so miss our California coastline but that is about all I miss. Hope you have many more days to play in the sand and surf.

I hope you can try it again to find out how lovely the water is. Once in there my dog was always reluctant to come out.

That wind was very strong. We have never been to the beach. Since we live in the middle of our country, we aren't sure we will ever get to the oceanside. But it sure looks like fun.

So windy, but really quite beautiful! Glad the blow dry was available.

That looks like even more fun than the Kansas Ocean!

That'll blow the cobwebs off you and no mistake. I reckon you all had a good time what with all the running about and stuff.
