Reaching the Beach

One of the best things that happened to us since forming our little walking group, Around Town Hounds, is that we’ve met so many wonderful new friends. One of those friends recently invited Harvey and me to tag along for a few days of R&R at Dewey Beach, DE.

Also visiting Dewey Beach this past weekend? Hundreds of other Greyhounds and their families, who meet up every year for a little event called Greyhounds Reach the Beach!

Here’s Harvey checking out the beach for the first time.

Bad weather was moving out the day we arrived, and was perfect until the day we left.

Some of the vanity plates we spotted.

This one belongs to one of my GUR friends.

This one’s mine.  I think my car was the only one there without decals.

Wheels of another kind. The wagon belongs to a little tripod girl.

Look at this beautiful home! It looks like a Greene and Greene design.

We stopped by to visit with Giles Henry, who spent the night with me and my boys halfway through his big GUR.

We didn’t participate in many of the scheduled events, but we did join the group photo session on Saturday morning.

My Around Town Hounds friends will appreciate this one!

Harvey and his new best buddy, House, enjoying the beach.

How often do you get the entire beach to yourself?

Many, many thanks to House and his mom for inviting us along, we had a wonderful time. I’ve already promised Harvey that we’ll go back someday.

I was there too! Actually I stayed with Giles' family. So we probably saw each other and didn't know it! It was a blast. Next time I am taking a dog with me!
