As soon as we got there, Lanie had to pick out the best place to put her towel and cooler. I forgot my towel (I know, right?) but sweet Lanie offered to share hers.
Being the outdoor-sie girl that she is, Lanie brought her sun screen. Ugh, I forgot THAT too! I guess I was so excited about going that I forgot some of the most important things to take to the beach. But again, Lanie lent me hers to use...thank goodness, cause even though it was later in the afternoon, I really, really didn't want to get a sunburn and look like a lobster!
Trey caught up to us and plopped himself down on a log next to Lanie's towel. "Sup girls?" he asked. "Well, the sky of course, Trey!" Lanie chirped back, followed by a muffled giggle. At first Trey just sort of stared at her and then looked up to the sky with a puzzled look on his face. "Good golly, Trey! It's a joke!" gushed Lanie. "I, uh.....I knew that!" Trey shot back in the most confident tone he could muster.....but it wasn't convincing, Lanie and I both knew that he really didn't get it at first. :)
After about an hour had passed, the sun was getting low so I decided to go for a walk along the beaches high tide line. Lanie said that was the best place to find sea glass. Even though I walked quite a ways on my own, I didn't find any sea glass or sharks teeth. This was probably because I had to constantly keep my eyes on Oreo who insisted on not staying with me and running on ahead. Still, the early evening was absolutely perfect so I was happy even though I didn't find any treasures!
When I got back from my walk, we all spent time talking and just hanging out together. It was so relaxing and fun. Oreo finally stayed beside me after I bribed him with a few treats. Lanie and Trey were sorry I had not found any sea glass or sharks teeth but both agreed it sure was fun just hanging out together on the bay.
Turned out, Oreo wasn't satisfied with one or two treats.....ohhhhh no, he kept coming back for more and more and more. He might be a silly dog but he sure is smart when it comes to his treats! And it doesn't help that I am a total sucker for his cuteness, lol.
We spent about another hour chatting and telling jokes.....and I spent it handing out treats to Oreo to get him to stay with me and not run off down the beach. It was just a perfect, perfect day and I didn't want it to end. Now that I am back home at the dorm, I really cannot wait to go back. I sure hope they let me go next year!
I was wondering; are any of you going to a beach this summer? Or, maybe you have already been to one! I'd love to hear what you liked about it! I know next time I am going to be sure to bring my towel and sunscreen!!! :)
