Sandy Beach

Look at this sky!
We've been to Sandy Beach twice this week.  
First time in MONTHS!

 We had the beach to ourselves.
SHE took 53 photos and 3 videos. It's been hard to just choose a few of them.
Daisy--SHE lives the picture.
Bella our little swimmer.....

 had a fantastic time swimming....

Floating fur

 Our Scottish retriever brought back a cockatoo feather
 which Roxy inspected.
 There were ducks to harass...
Here duckies, here duckies...
 Roxy wades, she always touches the bottom.

The river seems to be cleaner here AND there isn't as much mud.
We stopped by the Sports Ground to run around and dry off--
So NO baths when we got home!
Just dried and brushed.....YES!!!


  1. That looks like such a lovely place, would like to have a swim like that!

  2. Epic larks my fine friends and even better no bath. Pawsome! Have a terrific Thursday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. What a perfect day and place for a swim. There is nothing more beautiful then an Aussie blue is never so pretty here.....ah...we can smell gum trees

  4. Woo hoo, no baths. What a great place for some fun!

    Love Ruby & Penny

  5. OH MY DOGS what fun. Bella I love how your Scottie tail turns into a rudder when you swim.
    What a lovely place to enjoy a beautiful day Down Under.
    Hugs Madi your BFFF

  6. I'm with Roxy I like wading...great fun

  7. What a lovely spot for a swim it looks like you all had a pawesome time and it's great that missed out on the bath afterwards.

  8. Looks like you guys had a blast...and no bath! Bonus!

  9. Your blue sky and swimming pictures make me think warm thoughts. Too cold to think about swimming around here right now. I have never been swimming, but maybe this summer I will get my chance.


  10. You wouldn't catch me going in the water. I won't even step down to the first step in the pool no matter how hot it is.

  11. OH how beautiful... that is such a perfect place fur you girrrrls to swim. You have it all there... SUN SAND WATER DUCKS and the PRETTY ROCKS AND TREES. PLUS the NO BAFF AFTER!! When I (Frankie Furter) "SWIM" I am like Ernie's Roxy... I keep my feets on the bottom... and my FURS FLOAT just like Bella and Daisy's does!! Hummmmmm does that make ME sort of like FAMILY??? Now ERNIE would like to talk to Roxy.

    HI Foxy Roxy (agent 8787R),
    I think you are REALLY brave to go that far from shore. I am gonna have to tell you this.... I don't like to swim. Frankie does the WADDING thingy... butt I don't even do THAT unless mom forces me to. This is so embarrassing. Now I am all worried that you won't want to be my furend at all. Frankie says that I have to be honest... right from the start. So if you don't want to be my furend beclaws I don't like to swim, I will {{{whine}}}understand. I guess I should also tell you that I eat rabbit poops sometimes, too. And Sticks... I eat those too. AND I eat the Corn that falls outta the bird feeders and sometimes I eat MUD. And once I ate a night crawler. And I sometimes eat the horses poops that are supposed to be fur the Garden. And I am obsessed with LIGHT... any kind of Light butt especially my laser light. I SCREAM like a SQUIRREL over LIGHT. And I always read my OWN Pee Mails.. to EDIT them fur Accuracy and stuffs. And my Ear furs are too short and I don't have very nice Skirt furs either. And now and then I eat stuffie squeakers. And I Poop a LOT.
    Whew... I H O P E that you will still want to be my furend after hearing about all this. I REALLY REALLY hope so.
    Your ERNIE...

  12. That looks like the best place....wash and dry.... all in one visit! I hope your videos are going to be shown. I understand you couldn't play one of my videos last week. I was wondering if this was always the case? If so, then I have to think of another angle for my little munchkins to see me cavorting!
    Have a great day!!

  13. What an excellent adventure. And no baths .

  14. We wish we were swimming with you! Me and Stanley love to swim and we were thinking maybe we all could get Agent 8787E to the beach and let him wade into the little waters and then teach him to swim? He really is a nice guy and he REALLY likes you Agent 8787R! We can't hold that poop thing against him cuz we can personally testify how yummy horse poop can be. Please don't wait too long before answering his letter!

    Your Pals,

  15. That looks like so much fun. Wish we had a swimming hole around here. We have the ocean waves that try to get us. Cool feather

  16. Uh, I just read Ernie's confession. Poor Ernie!
    That place looks wonderful! And BONUS, no bathtime afterward!

  17. What great fun!! I'm jealous of any place where you can swim right now and the temps are above freezing--It's not here in Virginia!!

  18. Wowee, looks like you all had a wonderful time, especially since you didn't get bathed at the end! :-D Enjoy your beautiful beach visits, the good weather, and blue skies!!

  19. Ohhhhhh, Bella, I wish I could be there swimming with you, love it, we could splash and play bitey face in the water. Bites would stand on the bank with Daisy!

  20. Those pictures are excellent!!!!

    Good job on feather retrieving and especially the duck harassment! :)

  21. The clear river instead of bath option is fine so long as it's voluntary and the water is above 10ºC.
    Toodle pip!
    Bertie (who has been forcibly dunked in far too many icy cold clear streams at the end of muddy walks).

  22. Wow! That swimming hole looks like a lot of fun and the beach, and the ducks to swim after AND no bath when you got home. A Fun Day for all. Like your Mom's pics. All are good but our Mom liked the one with the little tail sticking straight out of the water...
    Ernie and the furkids

  26. To Agent 0087R... Whew you are still talking to me. I have been quaking in my furs all day.

    Have you seen those Subaru Driver's License thingys??? I got one and if YOU want one TOO... just check out the info that that want to have and email it all to me... and I will get one fur you!!
    I was SOOOOOO worried that tonight I did not even get my antler out to have gnawing time with you. Even though it is late.. I'm gonna do it NOW.. and I will put Petite Roxy RIGHT by me. I am soooooo relieved that you don't hate me fur having so many bad habits.
    PeeS... I play VIGOROUSLY and INSISTENTLY, too. Just sayin.
