How 'Bout A Scotty & Beach Fix?

Craving a little sunshine or beach weather? Last Saturday we had the perfect spring weather over at the beach. The sunset was spectacular and the perfect end to a much needed day away.

Surprise! Step on one of these little sea anemone and you will get a squirt!
Always meeting a new doggy on walks. This is Little Miss - a 14 year old sweet little lady!

Doogs walking with Dad.
Sea Level.
I want to go down there!

Last year in Pacific Grove, CA. Dad and Doogie.
This is the late little Scotty, Elmer. Elmer went to Heaven a month ago. He is one of the Scotty Dogs that we run into while in San Juan Bautista. He is a sweet little man!
The beach at Carmel, CA. Amazingly bare...

A true Scotsman! Doogs likes his Newcastle! Gulp, Gulp. Naw, he really didn't get any...don't report us, please!
Mr. Sandman....bring me a beer!
Waiting patiently for a morsel to fall to the ground.

Meow! Hissss Hissss...Bat, Thwak!
I spy....
a cute little Doogie butt.

A little baby Doogie - "Bat Ears!"

Doogs' First Picture - 8 weeks old. Sweet Face!

One year old and looking fine!
Fast asleep on my antique Euro Sham pillow.

A favorite photo, huh Amy?

Humans act so silly, don't they!?

Bath time!
Why the bath was needed!
At the Highland Games - sporting a rather sophisticated tartan!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Your music goes so well with these pictures and boy are they pretty scenes. You felt like you were there. I am not a dog lover, and I would take your dog in a minute.
He is one cute little puppy.

Hi Doogs!!! You are just the cutest little thing in fur and tartan! I cannot imagine you going to the beach and not attracting the attentions of all of the female species in both dog and human form. Hope you had a great day and tell Socks to be nice. Of course, I would do the same thing cause after all, that is what cats do. :) Meow!

Hugs ~
Dagi (and Heidi too)

Mr. Doogs is so beyond precious, I fall in love with him every time I see his sweet little face.

And that pic of him as a pup? OMGosh is he delicious!

What wonderful doggy pictures and the beach looks beautiful. You've got sunshine as's actually sunny here today amazingly! We had a Westie,Maisie who was 15 when she died a couple of months ago...we so miss her, especially when we return to the house, or when we go for a walk.

What sweet pictures of your puppy and now I want to go to the beach!! A warm one not the one near us!! I also love your beautiful redwork pics. I have a small quilt you inspired me to photograph and share. Maybe closer to Valentines Day..Since it's red... why doesn't someone do 'pink work'?
