At the Beach with Dogs

on August 12, 2011

Useless Bay, Whidbey Island

I love summer. Yes, I’m a teacher, so I have seemingly endless days off, I get to travel, and I get to sleep in. But, one of my most favorite things to do when the weather starts to turn nice is to take my dogs to the off-leash park. I live in a condo, so while we can go for daily walks, there isn’t a place where they boys can run around and have fun. There is a park with a nice off leash area. It’s hard to take them out there in the winter, though, as it’s sort of a former swamp that’s been converted into a park. When we do get out there, though, the boys are really happy and come home exhausted.

Well, yesterday, we decided to one-up ourselves. Out on Whidbey Island, a short ferry trip away, there’s a place called Double Bluff beach. This wide and very flat beach has a large off leash area. We took the dogs out there and let them go crazy. By the time we got home, they were covered in sand and their paws had a sort of greenish tint. Walking back to the car, Riley was lagging behind because he was so tired. When we got home (and the boys both had a thorough bath), they both crashed and slept the rest of the day.

Here are some pictures from our adventure!
