Bob is a Border Collie, a breed known for their, um, quirks. She is paranoid about water and over the years has come to associate certain types of structures with water -- whether there is water involved or not. She is suspicious of anything made of boards and refuses to walk on them. You know, because there might be water.
After the wooden boat show we walked out to Morgan Point on Winyah Bay. Like most hikes where we live, it involves crossing a (waterless) boardwalk.
This is how Bob hikes.
Back on terra firma and all is well in Bob-World. This is a peaceful,secluded little sandy beach and so tempting. You can't swim here though. Alligators get first dibs.
My daughter sent these photos this past weekend. Mason, a boy with three basketball- playing big brothers, is playing in the YMCA youth program for the first time this year. Here he is explaining to his dog Annabelle why she can't come along like she did to soccer.
Looks like he's going to do well -- if the eagle mascot doesn't eat him!
The Writer has been busy, too -- getting the seeds out of the pumpkin for his favorite snack. This guy had some giant seeds, too. And they were delicious roasted.
We're calling her Wanda.
