Maggie @ the Beach

I love watching children play in the sand.   The freedom of exploration and movement, the delight in their senses well the same can be said for a dog at the beach. Everything is exciting.   The sand, rocks and water all create a delicious field of adventures.   Catch a wiff of a passing dog, remnants of…

Wanderpup @ the beach!

Here’s a dog who thinks she is a person.   There is never a day that you can get out of the house without her running to the door. I can remember my kids always wanting to go for a ride ~ well my kids are grown and gone, Maggie now races me to the door!…

Water and Ice

The day was crisp and clear as I ventured out.    The white trail was not far from home and the need for a challenge was the plan for the morning. Maggie was only too happy to sniff and explore new directions.  Up over the hill and down ~ today was different as the weather…

Partner in Crime

I have had dogs all my life and they were apart of the household/   With luck, they had water in the dog bowl, food after everyone was fed and a walk when the craziness of life didn’t take over. Then this little pup showed up,  this cute little fluff ball.   Loved stuffed animals, has more…

Quiet elegance

As the afternoon of hiking faded, I was seeking those last few shots before the light faded and I walked around a tree and this beauty was in front of me.    We both were startled but stopped in our tracks. He stopped and acknowledge my presence and if on cue, he chose to strut…

Springton

Tucked away in the hills where the sheep are sheered in the fall and an abundance of activities for the children to explore was a farm with glorious views. Horses grazed and goats peaked through the fence.   The land had an abundance of trails that wove through the grounds.   A wedding was off in the…

Green Eyed Wonder

Have you ever felt you were given a gift that truly was meant for you?    I rescued Maggie as a puppy no bigger than my shoes, adorable with those green eyes. This little puppy grabbed my heart, she pushes my buttons and when I am sad, she snuggles up next to me to give…

Lunch Visitors

After an arduous descent and trek across a vase open crater, we settled in for some well deserved lunch.    Sitting in the midday sun, taking in the surrounding views were every bit as amazing as the day had been. Did you ever have the experience, you knew you were suppose to be right where…

Natural Beauty

The water has a natural attraction for me and when you add the beauty of a horse on the beach.   His calm presence almost if posing for pictures was breathtaking. As the day came to an end and this majestic creature was walking up the beach.     He was not bothered by my camera, not…

Beach friends

Little do we acknowledge the presence of those animals that are always at the beach.    These creatures are beautiful when capturing there essence. The beautiful white creature is elegant, calm and ever present.   It followed me that morning.   I perched myself on the grass and it approached.   Within three feet of…

Maggie’s 1st Snow

Stepping back and watching this puppy exploring this white cold fluffy stuff was fun! Hopping, running, digging for the tennis ball.   Throwing the ball and her returning was an adventure that continued for sometime on this cold afternoon. It was a like a switch that got flipped – Maggie got cold and ran for…
