Back to the Beach
Labor Day is over and Gustav passed us by. I took some time on the three day weekend to take Dixie to the beach, her first time in salt water and surf! I think she liked it and had a great time, but she was a little naughty off the leash, always looking for something slimy to lick, eat or roll in.
Despite the hurricane in the gulf, the weather was beautiful and warm without rain. The surf wasnít shaping up enough for the surfers, but lots were out in hopes of Gustav induced 10 footers. I left around midday and it really didnít seem like any sizeable waves were going to be generated until after dark.
Congratulations to my mother, who moved in to her new house over the past two weeks! I think she and Dana will be very happy there along with their menagerie. Now that we are close together, Dixie and I will get to visit them much more often.
