First Camping Trip of 2009




The past weekend we took our maiden voyage in the new-to-us RV we bought in February. I have done no redecorating, yet. The picture of Zoe illustrates what kind of weekend it was. I wish I could get an action shot of Flight, our greyhound, running on the beach. It is a joy to see. At one point, she ran into the water up to her back, chasing seagulls, and was quite surprised when she found herself up to her neck in water. I never thought she would do that.
We had fun.
The first photo is the view out our window, which faced on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. We were camping at Fort Worden. We had coffee at Sweet Laurette's, but mostly we enjoyed the storms and the dogs and the quiet.

Hi Naija,
We currently have 4 dogs, but only two of them are ours, the other two are our daughter's, the one that lives with us, and the one that moved out in August, but we kept her dog because the apartment they wanted did not take dogs. We are suckers.
We have the Dachshund, Greyhound that are ours and Jack Russel Terrier, and a dachshund/ chihuahua mix our daughters. Too many dogs.
Is yours a greyhound?
Julie

I have two doxies.. You'd be amazed how many creative bloggers have that breed of dog. I'm thinking of doing a post on it, I'll be sure to include you.
