Beach Picnic

I've been a slow blogger this month. Too much to do, too little time. Now that it is finally summer here I'll post some ocean/beach pictures to make us all feel cooler.

These were taken on the way home from the Ferndale shows, stopping for a picnic-late-lunch in Northern California.

Hiro dug a hole. Grandma Phoebe took it.

It was pretty Audrey's first time for the beach.

Kady says "Come back! Be careful!"

We're looking forward to camping and playing on the beach at Bandon in two weeks.

The People Kennel?

Several recent escapades by grandpuppies who went walkabout has made us more wary of safety and confinement of the C-Myste residents.  Kady and Audrey in particular have been good at escaping from the (apparently) inadequate field fence.

Before . . .

We decided that we were tired of chasing dogs who go through fences and who want to go down to the creek to play with the coyote cousins.  After twenty-one years it was time to upgrade.

. . . After.

Front and back.

Tom says "We're in a cage !"

But it should keep the dogs in.

The question is . . .

Will it keep other visitors out?

Probably the skunks, though neither the deer nor the raccoons.
