In January, I went on a week-long beach trip with my family and friends (some furrier than others). Watson got to be the lucky Schnauzer to go along, and now I am finally posting up the marvelous photos from our adventures.
One of the highlights is a baby sea turtle that my family & friends witnessed crawling all the way into the ocean. They had never seen that happen before and everyone was very excited and moved by the experience. Unfortunately, I missed that amazing sight, and I’m still very disappointed and sad about it. That being said, I did get to try to help save a pufferfish, snorkel with different kinds of fish and find a sea star, watch a ray swimming across the sand, play with a beautiful blue and purple crab, race with Watson all along the beach, and hold various tide-pool creatures, among other events. And yes, there are pictures of all of the above!
The following photographs were taken by Mari P. and my mother, respectively. Thank you both very much for capturing these sweet memories. 🙂
I think that this picture is hilarious. Clifford the Big Red Dog,

Here are some hermit crabs having a coconut party. In a coconut.
This tiny miracle.
I love this one.
Does your dog have a pink mustache? 😉
We believe that one of these critters stung my mother’s foot. Although she was a in a great deal of pain, she still remembered that she had once read about making a hibiscus tea in order to soothe stings from rays. So we made that tea and soaked her foot in it.
Behold our epic selfie excellence.
