Foggy Day at Scusset Beach

Got up one morning feeling a bit restless and bored and fidgety, so I decided to take the pups to Scusset Beach for a bit.  I have never attempted to handle both dogs on leads before, by myself, nor have I have had Sagan off lead, ever.  Needless to say I was a little apprehensive about it, but I didn't wanna leave them in the car either.  

So foggy you can't even see the power plant's stack.

This was the first time I heard the Canal fog horn since I moved away.  I used to be able to hear it from my apartment in downtown Sandwich in the late 80s, while wishing it was the fog horn on the Golden Gate Bridge instead.  

I let Beanie off lead on the sand bar, but was debating on letting Boo off.

He tried to make friends with this clam, that held fast in the sand.

After looking around and not seeing another soul, I let Sagie off lead to play.  He looks like a kangaroo in this picture!

How cute are they?

Both of them crossed a little channel of water onto another sand bar, which was too deep for me to cross. Beanie came back when called, but Sagan was too scared.  He kept putting his paws in the water and jumping back.  I finally waved a dog treat at him and that got his attention and he crossed back to me.

Not much in the way of good ground scores.  Only found 2 pieces of white beach glass but I did get some more rocks to paint.  It was a short trip but worth it to see my furkids playing with abandon!

    My dog (when I had one!) was terrified of the sea, unless he was walking between me and my mum; and one of us had to be in the sea, not him ;0)

  2. Sounds like the cuties had a lot of fun. I love the beach!
