The weather forecast for this past weekend at the house was cold rain (2 inches (5 cm)).  Temps in the 30°’s F (low single digits celsius) with lots of rain and showers.  Yuck!


Nope, believe it or not, that is not Cheoah’s face grimacing at the weather.  That is her entertaining herself by the “hooking her nose on the crate” face, which is done when we are in the S-RV!!!  We decided to escape the rainy weather and head down to the beach – Huntington Beach State Park to be exact – quiet, empty stretches of beach where The Herd can walk all they want.

We even went down to Charleston for a day and Natasha got to be very up close and personal with one of her favorite animals, but more on that tomorrow.  Stay tuned.

    That’s definitely advanced snooter technique there. Best not to do it when Dad’s ready to make a sudden stop though….ouch!

    WOOO! We like the beach too, but we mostly dig!

    You’re so close to mountains and the beach that you get to go exciting places. I need to ask Momma if we can move.
