Sniffing Sea Breezes

Yesterday was stormy and windy. Landon found lots of things of interest while sniffing the sea breezes.

We’ve had one of those stormy weeks with gusty winds and spotty showers. When the wind comes off the ocean and marsh, the smells are intense. Landon spent the morning sniffing (and savoring) the sea breezes.

Oh, yes, the sea breezes smell good

Don’t worry, though. A canine’s nose can detect more than one thing at a time, so Landon never forgot his job of protecting us from the dreaded enemy surrounding the house.

I smelled a squirrel.

    The first picture reminds me of when our boy first goes in the yard only he is sniffing for BUNNIES!!! There’s not too many squirrels in our area. No matter what their sniffer(lol) tells them they sure have good ones!!

    Ah, a good sea breeze. I love this first pic because you can almost imagine what he is thinking.

    Nothing beats a sea breeze. Better than our pesky blackflies in the mountains.
