Another Weekend at the Beach!

  Another beautiful Saturday... another trip to the beach. We have officially gotten our money out of the state park pass now. (You know the same logic as dividing the total cost of the shoes by the number of times you wear them.) This week we went to the Myrtle Beach State Park... this was the site of my previous biking "incident" which happened to be the same day that my last cell phone met its match in an unexpected wave. Since it is now full blown tourist season dogs are not allowed at the regular beach except early in the morning and in the evening. We like to take Tucker to play in the water so the state parks are perfect for us.
Tucker relaxing back at the towel after running through the waves. He is such a good dog. See that leash? It is only there because it is required. Tucker never wanders off or leaves us, unless it is to run the distance between Jim and I when prompted.

Cleaning sand out of his paws. 

The water was the perfect temperature!

Jim was able to fly his newly remodeled kite. At least until he let me fly it and I crashed it into the dunes. Evidently beyond the pretty grass and mounds of sand there are some seriously spiny plants that he had to wade through. Then once the kite was retrieved the string was so tangled that I think we may need to just purchase new string altogether.  Sorry dear :l. We also saw another sand sculpture. This one a little more detailed than the first.


Said dunes looking deceptively pretty.
What did you do this weekend?
