Dog beach

Buster’s favorite place in the world? A beach

One of our Christmas traditions is to go for a long walk, preferably a long walk on a beach.

Dogs always get to come.

Last year’s Christmas walk was on Jupiter Beach,  the year before  it was a dog beach near  Del Mar, just north of San Diego. Going backwards from there we had two years on Stone Island near Mazatlan and before that it was Yan ten,  a Caribbean beach near Playa Del Carmen. As per the rules, all  of them have included our dogs. Yesterday’s was on Venice’s  Brohard Paw Park .

I bet if you ask our furry friends, they’ll say that’s the best part of Christmas. And yesterday was no exception, they ran and played with all the other dogs for close to an hour.

On our way home from the beach we stopped at Starbucks for a frappuccino (that’s the closest we could get to ice cream) and while there I checked my smart phone. It said it was in Austin Texas where it was 11 degrees celsius. I quickly hurried outside. The thermometer in the car said it was 26 and that’s what it felt like . This morning when I turned my phone on it was still in Austin where apparently it was 5 (low 40’s) this morning.  i am happy to announce  she is now with us.  Venice Florida where it’s 16 (mid 60’s) at 7am.

Aren’t I glad I’m not in Austin!

Thanks Bonnie, I almost forgot. The prime rib “au jus” was amazing! Likewise the garlic mashed and the brussel sprouts with cream sauce.  For the wine we chose a fine bottle of 2011 J. Lohr “Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon”.  Excellent as well!

  1. Sounds mmmmm good. And all cooked in the Ninja? Stella walked in the snow yesterday, it wasn’t nearly as much fun as the beach but thats coming soon.

  2. Bonnie; I bet she’ll like the beach better too.
    Only the prime rib was done in the ninja. the rest was more conventional devices.
    You and Rick need to think about this.
    Brain and Glenda are going to be in Pensacola Beach for February and March. The Spicy Boys say they will there for a progressive dinner in February. We really need a fourth dish.
    It’s 684.4 miles from Myrtle Beach to Pensacola. Why don’t you guys come down and taste some prime rib first hand and hook up with us, John & Colette, Bill & Marilyn, Doug & Gerri and our friends Donna and Ronny from Arkansas (you’d love him, he’s funny!) and do Mardi Gras in early March? I think we could have a lot of fun.

  3. Pensacola is under serious consideration. March is way too busy with friends & family coming for us to bail! (although it sounds like you will have a great time). Will keep you posted
