So Friday night after I posted a HUGE storm rolled through - LOTS of lightning! Mom's good camera kept fogging up and she was nervous about using it so these photos - actually all of the photos in this post - are from the pocket camera and not too crisp! You might have to use your imagination a little bit!
This is the storm as it got closer.
Luckily we were dry and cozy with the two leggers in the Argosy. Yesterday brought some more of our Airstream friends, sunny skies and a slight cool down. It was still too warm for Cali and Phoenix to go to the beach midday so only I tagged along this time.
I was really curious about these - they were all over the beach! Mom wouldn't let me play with them though. Can you believe that?
There were many little two leggers asking to pet me. I was pretty good but I did get overwhelmed after awhile. I'm still not completely comfortable around crowds but I'm much more open to the idea than when I first found mom and papa. I overheard them saying how proud they were of me and how there was no way they would have considered walking me on a crowded beach just a few years ago. That made me feel good!
When we got back, we ran into a friend of Norwood's.
When he found out we knew him too, he hung around almost all day hoping he'd show up.
He even asked Cali (that furry black blob on the other side of the baby gate) to help him find Norwood.
Phoenix spent a lot of the afternoon on her green pillow letting the A/C fan her while she waited for dinner.
AFTER dinner, the most amazing thing happened. We went for our evening walk on the beach and it was FLOODED. Seeing a sopping wet Yorki walking down the path with her family should have clued us in that something was amiss but we didn't realize it until we crested the dune and saw water EVERYWHERE. It was fantastical!
It was great fun splashing through the ginormous puddles.
Even Phoenix got into the fun!
Mom said something to her about not wanting to hear any grief the next time she needs a bath since she clearly didn't mind getting wet in the sea water. Two leggers just don't get us sometimes!
At times the puddles (caused by a great big storm out at sea) were too deep for the little Phoeny. She stayed on the upper sand area during the deep stretch but Cali LOVED running through this new river to mom and Phoenix and then back through it to me and papa near the ocean waves. She was SOAKED!
Here is a quick video of her running through one last time before she had to put papa back on the leash since the crowds were building again. Everyone wanted to see this strange water pattern.
It was a great evening - SO much fun!
Cali and papa went for an early morning walk today and the water had receded but I wonder if it will be like that again tonight?? Paws crossed!
I know this is a super long post but I wanted to thank The Fiesty Three for their wonderful prayer chain idea for all of our friends in blogland who need our thoughts right now. Click here to read all about it.
I also want to thank Miss Mayzie. Mom says that the dogs and cats in blogland are priority to her but that Mayzie was so sweet to include her and papa in her prayer list. As many of you know, I was excitedly awaiting the arrival of not one but TWO little two leggers of my very own. Sadly, mom lost both babies and our hearts are heavy here. Though we have our down moments, we're doing much, much better lately. This is due in no small part to many of you and your gentle support. Thank you!!
Now I'm off to find some more beer! Papa said something about a couple of Carolina Blondes..
WHAT are the PEEPS thinking???
