We Have Arrived

Yes, yes, we have arrived. Ok, sure, we are so tired. Seven hours of driving in the S-RV (Siberian Recreational Vehicle), but we arrived in time for a nice long walk, a dinner in the campsite, and an early bed time.

This is our Fall Beach Trip to Huntington Beach State Park in Murrells Inlet, SC. Huntington is one of our favorite RV parks and we visit it 2-3 times a year – but only in the cooler weather.

Dinner was good. What's next?

Once we got our walk done, we hung out in the campsite for a little while on our picket line, but every pup was really tired.

Can;t keep my eyes open.

Even our most energetic member was a little lethargic after the long ride (and a big dinner).

I can stay awake. Really.

While Typhoon tried to pretend he could stay awake, other members of our tribe didn’t even try to pretend.

No shame in getting comfortable.

    Mom sez: Oh, my! And here I thought Typhoon was old enough now to “sleep through the night”, like the rest of the “big dogs”!

      Typhoon says being a mischievous puppy is significantly more fun than growing up.

    Does that mean everybody gets to go out for a quick break at 4:00 am? What’s your routine?

    • The Thundering Herd on October 18, 2015 at 4:06 pm

      No, that was strictly one youngster who is named after a natural disaster. Everyone else was quite content to continue to sleep.

    Will they sleep through the whole night or are you expecting a 4am walk request?

      Almost 4 am on the nose. Starting today, we will have multiple walks a day which, hopefully, translates to solid nights of sleep.
