Dana's first view of the ocean from our balcony The first day was overcast and mild. So we all sat on the beach for about 7 hours..just soaking up the rays. we were joined by 10 other dogs (8 greyhounds, 1 afghan and a whippet + our 4 hounds)..just lounging.
Sand became and issue throughout the day...someone said "Hey..let's dig a hole!"
and lay in it!Or try..
Which led the humans to be a little naughty to Jaime...
She was like that for a while..so it must not have been too bad!
With all that sand getting kicked around..it started to get everywhere..
I felt sorry for Cali now and took her down to wash her face off in the ocean. I brought her back all clean and sand free..and laid down and did this..on purpose.
But don't worry..there were plenty of treats on hand. Michelle hands out some goodies
We gave them a quick nap and headed out to Barefoot Landing for a stroll and dinner.The were even restaurants who pre-planned for our arrival. We had 8 hounds and 4 people ..we enjoyed a wonderful meal with our hounds!
But Cali's persistance won out over Nerice..you knew someone would cave!
the next day..the weather is better for sunbathing than greyhounds. so we give them the day to recooperate. Then we head out in the afternoon for some fun in the surf! Cali wasn't sure about the moving water at first..but after watching Nerice and Dolly having so much fun.
She was chomping at the bit to enjoy the waves.

After all this..we had some very tired dogs...
the last morning on the beach, we had a sunrise ceremony. The sight of 200 people and 400+ greyhounds in one place is quite awe inspiring. We check out the group from the balcony.. then walk down and join the group..We end our trip with a group roo..I feel sure they heard us way down the beach. Dana of course cut her paw (she can't go anywhere with hurting herself)..so although she was in attendance she was not in the mood for roo-ing.
