People Watching

For a break away from the everyday hub-bub, we love going to the beach. It is one of my favorite things in life. Whilst there, I catch up on all of my favorite magazines - oh, and this one caught my eye!! My favorite hunka-dunk and dressed in wranglers, too! Yummy with a spoon!
This beach trip I decided to get my nose out of my magazines for a bit and to watch other people -and the dogs - enjoying themselves on the beach. A little lad sizing up the surfer as he walked by. I wonder what he was thinking? Probably, "I wish I could be like him!"
After the surfer passed by, the little boy just stood there and stared out at the boat in the distance.
Three little kids enjoying themselves. Kind of blurry, but I like how it came out.
This family consisted of three dogs, two surfer boys and the mother and dad. I thought they were very cool and layed back, especially their very lazy dogs!
Now this dog was really "digging" his time at the beach!
The boat is making progress out there.

A dad and his daughter enjoyed their time together.
See the little Corgi? He was just visiting everyone who walked by. Of course, Heidi would have really loved seeing him!
Dogs having the time of their lives.

The little Corgi is waiting for more people to walk his way.....he was such a charmer!

Cool surfer dudes....
checking out the waves. Now come on, I WAS NOT checking out their bums! haha

Kids each doing their own things.
I spy a Doogie Dog!!!! Hey, who is walking who?
A tired little guy after a busy day at the beach.
Hey little man, you have some sand in your beard!!

Ta ta for now and happy trails! Hopefully they are sand trails and you will have some beach time to cool off!

It certainly looks like you had a great time. Especially since you had to wear jackets! That means it was a whole lot cooler than here. How long does it take to de-sand The Doogs?

Yes, Maggie got to the Dyson!! I'll have to clue you in on her other escapade. That dog......

Heidi said...

What a fun day you have had. I can SEE that Doogs enjoyed his little old self. :) The sand in his beard is too cute. Corgis are just such people doggies.

Hope you have a fabulous weekend dear Becky!

Hugs and kitty kisses ~

What a nice day. I love seeing dogs ALLOWED at the beach. I bet Doogs has a blast. I hope it cooled you off. And thank you for getting your nose out of the Selleck article long enough to take some pics ;-) He's still a hunk-a-dunk!


Dena ~ swaddlecottage said...

What a fun day! I've yet to hit the beach this summer and I could sure use a little sand for my toes. Thanks for taking me along :)


Liz said...

Hubba Hubba! What a Hottie! I LOVE Tom Selleck!
What a great day at the beach! We, unfortunately, are all beach and no water here. LOL! Not as much fun, I promise you!

Jean said...

People( and pets) watching is always fun. Tom Selleck watching is even better. I've always loved him and that cute smile. WOW!
Have a wonderful weekend,
Jean in Virginia

That looks wonderfully relaxing...I am envious!

Sue said...

Ahhh... My kind of day- on the beach, with TOM SELLECK!!!, and your pups! We are missing our dog terribly and are getting close to finding another baby. I would love a Scottie but not sure if my husband would be allergic or not. He managed well with our poodle.

Mary Isabella said...

Wow!!!! Looks like you had a wonderful timethis day. I hope all your days are happy beach days. ....Have a funtasic weekend....Mary

Connie said...

Honey, Tom Selleck has always been my idea of the "sexiest man alive"!! I don't care how old he gets! Outside of my Love Bunny, of course. I doubt that I'd get my nose out of the book if he was in there!! Wooooohoooo, my sweet chick.

What a great day at the beach and doogs look like he had a great time. Beautiful scenery by the way.


Michelle said...

What a fun day at the beach.. and Tom too! Gotta love that! I love beaches that allow doggies too..

Have a great weekend,

Cowboys & Custard said...

Every picture tells a story and what a lovely story book to look at..
I love people watching too but hardly get out of the house these days to do so.. Holidays are coming up soon so I will be sitting on a beach somewhere on this side of the world doing just the same as you.. but without dear Doogs...alas!

With love and hugs

Daisy Cottage said...

Denise said...

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

I love to people watch too! Looks like you had so much fun at the beach. I confess, I would have looked at the cute guys' butts, lol. And Tom Selleck at the beach! Oh I wish! He was such a hearthrob when Magnum PI was on. He's still got it!


Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

I enjoyed being at the beach (my fave place in the whole wide world) with you. I just saw that magazine with the cover of T. Selleck yesterday. I had never seen it before. Magnum PI used to be one of my most favorite shows. Hope you're having a terrific weekend. ~ Lynn

I always enjoy it when you go to the beach and share it on your blog. I miss having the ocean so close, so it's very nice to be able to see your pictures and remember...
Patricia :o)

Katie said...

What a beautiful beach! A friend of mine took her very elderly dog to the beach a great deal this past Spring. She would carry him out, as he couldn't walk in the sand. She would lay him on a blanket, and he would just enjoy the beach...Sadly, she had to have him put to sleep right around this time. She said she was glad that he'd had such nice days with her at the beach just before he died. Take care, Katie

Kathleen Grace said...

HI Becky, I tagged you for a meme of five things you love. Will you share your 5 things with us?

Stacy said...

Eating my heart out, here. Yours is the fourth or fifth blog I've looked at this morning that has photos from their beach vacation posted. I don't get to go this year due to Sweet 16 birthday parties and weddings to pay for. I am glad to do those things, but dang....Couldn't we have done them at the beach?

Will keep reading up your blog posts!!
