ADinLOS loves the outdoors. In the fall, we hike. In the winter, we bundle up, and hike. In the fall, we hike. In the summer, we go to the beach. Whether it’s our favorite because of proximity or the clear water, Sandy Hook is our favorite. The only problem with the beach is, most aren’t dog friendly. Saturday, Sake spends the afternoon with Lissette’s mother and Seyval, outside in the garden, getting pampered with treats…pacing and waiting for us to get home.
Sandy Hook is a federal park, which has it’s benefits, and it’s deterrents. ADinLOS generally follows the rules, and when a federal park says no dogs until Labor Day, we’re not going to mess with it.
While the Summer was atypically cool, September was atypically warm and we got a few good trips in.
Up early, packed jobs finished, we’re at the beach 45 minutes later.Perfect skies, cool sand, tepid water, and an empty beach, it’s almost like the day was prepping for Sake’s return. Armed with her flying tortilla chip (ChuckIt® Heliflight) Sake is ready to play for hours. Throw after throw, she tracks it down, pounces, and retrieves (sometimes more gracefully than others.) A quick lunch break, and she’s back for more. A quick swim, back for more. Finally…she lets us know she’s done.
And to our pleasure, the day ended as well as it began, a nice glass of wine, Sake curled up in our lap, and a picturesque sunset over the bay.
