Finally, Some Fun

We've sure had more than our share of rain on our vacation but Saturday early evening it stopped and we headed into town to do some shopping! Do you think we need a Nantucket picnic basket, Mitch?!

The restaurants were busy but the shops weren't! We think all the rain had a lot to do with it!

Saturday wasn't much of a thrill for us and we didn't stay in town too long! Dad was the only one who got ice cream and he did share a tiny bit of Rum Raisin with us! We went to bed hoping that tomorrow would be a dryer and much more fun day for us!
Sunday morning we headed to Surfside beach for our walkie and just as we got home, the sky opened up and it POURED! And it poured for the whole morning!

But early afternoon the sun came out and off to Nantucket center we headed!

We met a doggie that reminded us a lot of Clive but she wasn't very friendly and didn't want us to shop in her store! Heck, we don't like your merchandise anyway!

And we took a walk on the docks and tried to decide which yacht we wished we could own!
This is Chubs! Isn't she just adorable!

Her owner said that he also calls her Ready Freddie! She seems to respond to lots of names! She was a pretty easy-going girl!
We're off to a picnic at Something Natural and then dad says tonight we'll all have ice cream! yahooooooooo

So until next time............

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Hope the weather improves soon. We bet you will LOVE your ice cream.

Chubs is very cute - is she sticking her tongue out at something?

Clive said...

Hey, that dog does look a lot like me!! Don't think much of her behaviour towards you both though!

Hope you got lots of ice-cream tonight and that the rain goes away and stays away!

Take care

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!

Hope the rain goes away for the rest of your vacation and you get some sunny days. But it looks like you are having a lot of fun anyway. Ice cream is good anytime no matter the season or weather.
Have fun

I think that's it for the rain. It turned out to be a great afternoon over here. I think the Clive look alike can keep the merchandise.. ready freddy is much more fun.

I wonder what ice cream flavor you picked out.. my guess.. something with marshmallow.

I am sorry it is so rainy, I hope it gets better soon. My Mom loves rum raisin, she was jealous. I hope the rest of your vacation is more funner.

licks and sniffs, Sasha

The Bumpass Hounds said...

Hey M&M,
Well Danny Boy has left town and the rain should be following him. Youse guys must be having ice cream withdrawal. The Clive lookalike obviously wasn't as nice as Clive. Y'all didn't need anything in her store anyway since it didn't appear to have food and/or treats in the windows. We hope that you have a sunny and dry vacation from here on out.

What lovely walkies, even in the rain. It looks nice n cool. I am feeling jalous, my walkies are soooo boring. Enjoy your picnic and the ice cream. That's what makes vacations wonderful, new walkie places, new sniffies, new friends and lots of nummy eats with naps sprinkle liberally through all of it.

Have fun,
Riley and Star.

I hope the rain has gone away for good! There are so many pups there, how exciting! Can't wait to see more picture from your vacation.

I'm also hoping it stopped raining so you can all enjoy your vacation. Well that dog in the store wasn't such a good idea, was it? Not good for business. I bet that was the last time he went to work.

Sunshine, please come out for Maggie and Mitch and their parents, ok?

xoxo

Hi there Maggie and Mitch
You look like you are having a fabulous time - despite the rain. You guys are certainly photogenic! We love that pic of you on the bed...soooo comfortable. And of course we agree that that doggie looks like Clive! Pity he's not as friendly.
Lots of licks

Nantucket seems like a great place for a holiday, even if it does rain a bit.

We hope the rain stays away for the rest of your vacation! The Clive "look alike" looks very gruff! We hope you got your ice cream last night!

It looks like you making the best of a wet situation. We hope the weather clears up soon. According to your thermometer, it's 53 degrees at your home right now, we hope it's a little warmer than that in Nantucket.

I love shopping! Esp when I can go in stores. Mom is all gooey about that big white dog, but I probably wouldn't like her at all. Just as well that she wasn't friendly.

Hi Maggie and Mitch, sorry to be so late in commenting.

We have lots of rain here too, the summer seems to have suddenly gone away and been replaced by autumn.

I am so envious of you getting some of your Dad's ice cream! As I have told you before I have never, ever eaten ice cream. I now dream about it all the time!

lotsaluv, Marvin xxxxxx

Sue said...

Lots of walks and ice cream, too. Sounds like a pretty good vacation so far.

Hope the sun comes out and stays out for the rest of your vacation!

Bree and Reilly said...

Ahhoy you old salty sea dogs!!!! What is this about the lack of ice-cream? I think someone should be made to walk the plank for that!!! Hopefully the rain will pass and sun will prevail soon

Mollie Jo and Bobo said...

What a great vacation you too are having. Too bad about the rain.

Glad it finally stopped raining so you could get out! I sure hope you savored that ice cream and that it was worth the wait. That doggy looked grumpy and not worth your time to us!

Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

It looks like you are having a good time in Nantucket. We think your Mom and Dad should consider opening up an ice cream store. You could be the taste testers.

Love -
