Our secret beach!

Max - We have something to show you! Come on, come on - hurry up, it's this way!


JD - Are you sure Max? I thought it was THIS way?


Max - It's not up HERE JD....
JD - Hmmm, well, perhaps it's down here......


Max - This is what we want to show you! It's our secret beach! Most of the time it looks like the photo above - you wouldn't know there was anything there!


JD - But when the tide goes out - way, way out! - this little beach is revealed! Not many people or pups know about it - it's only there for about 2 hours each day, at different times, depending on the tides!


Max - We LOVE this little beach! Because it's usually covered by the sea when it IS revealed there are the most delightful sniffs to be had! Wonderfully fishy - ooh, you've got to smell it to believe it!!


JD - There's a particularly good sniff here Max - I do believe that a crab scuttled across this very spot not two seconds ago!!


Max - We love playing zoomies on this beach - both on the sandy bit as you can see above....


JD - ....and also on the seaweedy bit, as we demonstrate here!


Max - Playing zoomies or bitey face on seaweed adds a whole new dimension! It's very slippery you see - FH calls it 'eXtreme zoomies!' whenever we're running on the seaweed!


JD - A pup really has to keep his wits about him when he's running on seaweed! You can see the look of concentration on Max's face!


Max - eXtreme bitey face is SUCH good fun too!!


JD - Wheeeee! If I run down on the sand I can cut Max off and beat him to the slope, he he he!


Max - This little beach is sheltered so it's always calm, with interesting rocks scattered around. We like to explore the shallow water - there's always something interesting to look at!


JD - There are these weird floaty things that mark the shoreline to stop boats getting too close to the rocks. Max is a little scared of the way they bob around so he usually sends me in to investigate!


Max - My big brother IS very brave - not only does he not flinch when these strange round things bob about in a most alarming way, he also doesn't mind getting his paws wet as he wades right up to it!!


JD - Max doesn't mind paddling but he draws the line at swimming! I LOVE swimming and plan to show a video of my athletic prowess very soon! In the meantime here is a snap of me doing my 'loch ness monster' impression with my tail, he he he!


Max - We hope you enjoyed visiting our secret beach with us! It's one of our favourite places to walk and we're alway very disappointed when it's covered by the sea!


JD - I'm going to leave you with a photo of me and my amazing eyebrows! I've been cultivating them recently - what do you think?!!

OMD! The entire beach! You boys are so very lucky! The beach looks so very nice and cool.

It is so very hot here, it has been over 100 degrees for a week now with no let up in site. I do NOT like hot, neither does my Mom. I am lucky and we have AC!
But we would both much rather be at your beach!

So very lovely!

Have a Great Weekend, Hugs to you both, Tessa

How exciting! A secret beach, just like an Enid Blyton story.
You two are so lucky to have a beach of your own, we have to take our life in our paws and hope there are no big dogs to eat us on our beach.
Congrats.

Oh Max & JD - what a fantastic secret beach!! Did you see any crabs, like the one I encountered at the beach over here? I love going over the sand at low tide too - you never know what the sea might have left behind!

As for those eyebrows - oh my God - I think they're giving me hot flushes! :-)

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

Oh boys, this post really shows off you're handsomness, bravery & agility! Bravo.

Every time we come back to your site, we remember why we fell in love with you in the first place. I mean that in a very manly schnauzer way, of course!

That special sea-beach looks magical like in the movies! What a treat. Someday if I can visit you, you'll have to take me there, as I've never seen anything like it!

You humans are so wonderful, we'd love to know even more about them!

Twix said...

How wonderful to have your very own beach! Do you ever find yummy things there to eat when the tide goes out? I've been wondering something since I started following you two.....where do you live. No specifics, just wondered what country or state,etc.
Snuggles,
