Brant Point Lighthouse

Yesterday when mom and dad got home from Surfside beach we packed into the car and headed to Something Natural again for another picnic dinner. Mom and dad have been trying to eat light so we have room for ice cream!
I see dad coming back! Great ready Mitch!
You can see my new collar in this picture! Dad bungies us to the picnic table so that we won't run off and get ourselves into a heap of trouble. Hey, no way am I going anywhere when there's food on the way! You can count on that!

After dindin we headed to Brant Point to check out the lighthouse. This is the harbor side of the Island, not the ocean side so the waves aren't quite as intense. Dad was hoping that maybe he could get me to go for a swim. hummmmmmmmm, I think NOT!
Mitch tried to taste the ocean and decided he didn't like the salt water! Smart boy!

Mom tried to lure me closer to the water where Mitch and dad were and she got me to follow until I felt damp sand on my feet and that was enough of the wet stuff for me! I think I'll explore this nice seaweed mom, at a safe distance from all that nasty ocean water!

When we approach Nantucket, while we're still on the ferry, this lighthouse is one of the first sights we see. It never ceases to bring a smile to mom and dad's faces! Mine too mom!
I love Nantucket!
We sure do love it here!
Just to let you all know, we did have gingersnap molasses ice cream and it was to die for but unfortunately mom's memory card in the camera got filled up and all photo taking came to a halt so we'll address that issue today and we'll be back in business in a hurry!

Newsflash! We're back in business! yippeeeeeeeeeeeee

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

Reporting live from Nantucket...........

Love ya lots,

That new collar is quite lovely on you. Sorry that you don't like the water. We hear that a dog can float really easy in the ocean. Comeon, give it a try!

Amber-Mae said...

Oh, you look nice in your new collar Maggie. Wow! You both got to go to the beach> I don't understand why you both don't like to go into the waters coz if I was there right now, I'll dash straight in & splash! I don't care if it's salty or if it will spoil my hair. My hair is already spoiled anyway, hehehe! So how much spoiler can it get? You guys are having a time of your lives! Keep updating us about your trip yeah!?

Love licks,

You have some great vacation snaps! That looks like an awfully pretty place. And good on Mitch for having conquered the stairs!

We saw the eclipse! I was not that impressed but the ma ape kept telling me it was cool. I told her it would be much cooler if she would get to getting me breakfast.

gingersnap molasses icecream! My mum has gone all dreamy-eyed just imagining that.

Maggie, you look splendid in your new collar.
