Cisco Beach

Yesterday was the most awesome day! We started out with our two mile walkie down to Surfside beach and along the way we met our friend Colleen - the one who's getting Jake, the Airedale puppy this coming weekend. Mom and dad suggested that the four of them go out to dinner one night so everybody's is excited about that!

We all went into town again to help dad buy the newspaper. BTW, we would never dream of rooting for the Yankees, Agatha and Archie! No way! Red Sox all the way!
Mom stopped into a store called Cold Noses and came out with two fancy rope collars for both of us. Mine is green and pink and reminds mom of wallymelon and Mitch is a patriotic boy in red white and blue! While we were window shopping I spied a sign for ice cream and pointed that out in a hurry!
We meet so many doggies every day. We saw Simba hanging around the docks and we saw this grey Poodle that had been shaved down to the point that mom asked the owner if it was a GreyHound! Mommmm! She's so embarrassing! We saw Ernest and we've seen lots of Golden Retrievers and Labs! No Boston Terriers yet Ruby! We saw Herbie and 5 month old Helios and Pacco and Scruffy and even Opy, who was minding a clothing store!

After town we headed back home, had lunch and then mom and dad headed to the beach for a couple of hours. They were back around 4PM and told us that we'd all be going out to dinner as a family. Whooooohooooooooo! We went to Something Natural. It's a sandwich shop where you can eat outside on picnic tables with the best views! Mom grabbed bottles of water and a bag of chips and we were off!
The next stop was Cisco beach. Mitch has never seen a beach before. We were standing in the sand admiring the view when a wave came in and got Mitch and dad wet! Mitch wasn't sure about it at first but soon realized that this could be fun! He starting digging and tossing sand everywhere! Good thing it was after hours and no people were nearby!
I don't feel the same way about getting wet - no way do I want that nasty sticky salt water all over my fur!
I couldn't wait to leave!
I got my wish! We left after dad dried Mitch off and got all that icky sand off him! We headed to Stars for some Vanilla frozen yogurt. It was so yummy and refreshing! What a great ending to a perfect day!

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

Love ya lots,

The Vacationing Maggie

OMdOG sounds like you are having the most amazing time! Those pictures are great. Hey, take a picture of your new know me and my collar obsession - hee, hee, hee!!!

I'm kinda surprised that you haven't seen any Boston's considering how close you are to Boston...but oh well. Definitely sounds like Nantucket is a very doggie friendly place - Yay!

Miss you...lots of Licks, Ruby

Putter said...

Sparky said...

That sounds like so much fun - especially the ice cream part of the adventure! Are you having a hard time walking on all the cobblestones? Are you smelling all of the flowers?

the many Bs said...

Oh M&M! You are having such a great time! We want to come too! Beach! Water! Rope collars! Ice cream! Lunch! can you see our tails wagging?????

but we are sniffing sad for the poodle with the shaved off hair. OMDog, that is sooooo saaaad. poodles are supposed to be fluffy curly-Qs, like us, and all sweet and hugable.


Stanley said...


Girl, you look so at home in Nantucket. Good of you to point out where the goodies are!

I assumed, as a nature girl, you'd be all over the beach. But, I understand what it could do to your "do", so now I get it.

You guys are having so much fun! It was good of your mom & dad to get you your ice cream fixes! Keep those coming, please. Give both your mama and dad goober hugs from me ~ it will help them relax even more. Hope they're having half as much fun as you guys are!

Goober love,
