Winter Sea

Farmer's Almanac is promising a mild but wet winter and so far they are right on track. Today, despite questionable road conditions I decided we'd make the trek to the beach . As usual the effort was worth it.

The dogs love the snow. Who knows why, probably because it's so mysterious and completely changes the way things look and smell, plus I like to think they also appreciate the simple beauty of it, how it effortlessly scrubs the landscape clean.

Esme had some rough going because I completely forgot her booties at home and so with balls of snow dragging her down a bit she hung back and spent more time watching than playing. Makes a nice change!

The Ridgebacks accepted the invitation of the untouched blanket that stretched before them and marked it with their gleeful passing. A wide white open beach fairly begs to be galloped along.

Breaking trail on the boardwalk back to the truck, all three are ready for a steaming hot cup of cocoa and a roaring fire. Can't say that it doesn't sound pretty good to me too.
