... all sandy and sticky with sunscreen, only to find out that your water is turned off. Ugh.

On the plus side, the beach was lovely (I’m taking a bit of staycation through the July 4 holiday, so I could actually take the dogs on a weekday). Not remotely crowded, cloudy and not too hot, just generally a perfect beach day if you’re me and don’t like hot weather.

It was the first time Buster’s had significant off-leash time since his surgery, and it was so great to see him running around, exploring and playing with other dogs. He was definitely more hesitant than he used to be, and his leg got a little stiff, but he was still a happy boy, and now he’s sleeping the sleep of the righteous.

I, OTOH, am disgusting and can’t wash it off. Blech. Blech, I say!
