Family Beach Walk

We walk on the beach every morning and every evening during our beach week vacations . . . and sometimes squeeze in a third daily family beach walk as well. For some odd reason, people think it is unusual for a Herd of Siberian Huskies to go walking on the beach.

We weren’t even the biggest crowd on the beach yesterday, as a lucky couple was having their wedding on the beach. Weirdly, Hu-dad would not let us run up to the bride and groom and wish them well.

Beach Wedding

Long time readers may remember the time we were walking on the beach and a couple was having their wedding portraits taken. The bride insisted that we join for a few shots. Hu-dad was incredibly nervous that we might cause havoc during that photo shoot. He was particularly nervous because they wanted us but NOT the Hu-dad in the pictures. To always keep him off-balance, we behaved and the photo session went well.

No wedding party pictures yesterday just family beach walk.

We do have one theory as to why so many people stare at us during our beach walks. Anyone want to guess?


Typhoon being, well, Typhoon.

We often get asked if we ever get in the water. Frankie and Typhoon are quite clear that water that moves can not be trusted and Qannik prefers to avoid it (though has waded sometimes). The girls, however, do enjoy a little wading as long as the water does not get above their knees.

Just about deep enough

Time to pack up and travel back home. We will be singing travel songs in the RV all day. Imagine Hu-dad’s excitement.

beach week

Ahhh – another great beach week comes to a close.

As always, thanks to the wonderful staff at Huntington Beach State Park in South Carolina. They do a terrific job and the park is beautiful. We will see you in the fall!

    Great getaway! Does the Herd really sing all the way home? Who starts it?
