Summer Highlights

Camping

Views from our favorite beach:




Toot wasn't used to being around so many strangers and felt safe under the picnic bench, which was just as well since she'd bark at everyone who came too close to our campsite!


I thought this doxon looked a lot like Michael Caine...

A bridge that reminded me of Jo and Laurie from Little Women...

A cove that looked like the Mediterranean



Sunrise on the last morning


I know Teyla is on the left, but I have no idea who is on the right!

Mackenzie's Momma -- Thank you, too! And what happened with the coyotes and the peas???

Ooh great pictures. Really makes me wish I had more time to hike around here(and someone to hike with as you can't go on our trails alone).

As for coyotes and peas- only 1 coyote that I saw all season :(

Though I may have seen a lot of arses ;) oh wait those were the boys I worked with ;) ;)
