Sunrise Beach Games

What would an RV trip to the coast be without some sunrise beach games. And, don’t worry, at least one member of The Herd did get her paws wet.

As all our fans know, we do love our early morning time. And that means we have to make sure Hu-Dad is up to enjoy the early morning as well. Like, say, sunrise at the beach.

We have the beach to ourselves this early.

We know two questions probably come to your mind when you see the above photo. First, yes, Frankie and Typhoon are with the photographer. And, more importantly, yes, Cheoah did get her paws wet. She never misses a chance to show off why Cheoah is the Cherokee word for Otter.

    I can almost hear the surf and smell the brine. Lovely photos.

    Beach time is the best. Taking my crazy redhead to Cape Cod next weekend and she hopes it will be cold and windy. Silly Huskies.

    It’s awesome the Herd loves the beach at sunrise-BUT does Hu-Dad LIKE getting up that early???? Cheoah is so beautiful walking through the water. Landon isn’t liking it too much though but I’m sure the Herd enjoyed their beach walk!!
