Start of Summer

One of my absolute favorite things to do in the summer is to bring the pups to Fort Worden.  So when we had a warm Saturday and DH didn’t have to work, we loaded up the car and headed out.

It takes us about an hour to get there and the ride is pretty.  We get to go over the Hood Canal Bridge and there are views of the mountains on and off along the way.  Joey did amazingly well during the car ride.  He often whines and barks but not this time.  We’re hoping he’s getting the hang of riding in the car.

We like this beach because there usually aren’t too many people 2012-05-26 14.57.25there and once again we weren’t disappointed.  It was breezy but still warm…just enough so you weren’t sweating.  There is drift wood by the dunes and sometimes you come across it in tide as well.  By the dunes it’s rocky but then gets sandy as the beach meets the water.   The water is cold as the Pacific tends to be, even for this New England girl who grew up swimming in the Atlantic.  I usually only put my toes in.  Molly doesn’t seem to care about the temperature, she plunges in every. single. time.  She LOVES the water.  Joey, not so much.  The Man did throw him in and get got out as quickly as possible.  Joey did enjoy sniffing around the beach so he was a happy as Molly was in the water.
