Yesterday we went to the beach.
Well not the ocean beach, but the river beach. At this time of year when the water is low, before the Spring runoff has started, there is a big sand bar in the Fraser River. Instead of driving 40 minutes to the ocean, we can drive 10 minutes to the river. The sand is really soft there, and it's hard enough for us just walking in the stuff, so the dogs must have got one heck of a work out.
We did remember to go prepared, with rubber boots and balls and a chuck-it.
We went out to the edge of the river, which meant everything was muckier, but the dogs got some water action too.
It made for some really mucky dogs
We could rinse them off in the river, but then we had a lot of sand to cross to get back to the trail and the car.
It was one of those spring days that was a mixed bag regarding the weather. Quite a heavy shower of rain, started, so we decided to head back.
And then we saw this
Which developed into this
Multiple pots of gold, just a river's width away!
There weren't any volunteers to swim across though, too bad:(
You should have seen the pile of sand that was on and around Luna's mat this morning, after her tail and feathers finally dried out. Oh, and on the stairs, and in the basement.
She must have felt much lighter.
