It’s become somewhat of an annual tradition, not just for me to go to the beach in Maine with my sisters and girlfriends for a long weekend every summer, but for me to be on the lookout for some interesting pet-related finds while I’m there. Even though no dogs come with me, I’m always thinking about them! We went to Ogunquit Beach again this year. Since this was our second year going there, and I shared a lot about it last year, I had to find some new things to post for this year! This huge sculpture at a shop in town made my first find easy.
I had seen this t-shirt on the Facebook page of my favorite little shop in Ogunquit before we even went, so it was already on my shopping list!
Last year the K9 crew got collars from that store, so this year we did something different and got some toys instead. I have a feeling a lot of fun will be had with these sharks! Cue the Jaws music….only I think the sharks might lose this one to Luke!
While this little story is not pet-related, it is animal related. This big seagull showed up on the railing of our balcony at our motel, while we were outside having some snacks. We had already heard two stories this year of seagulls on our coast stealing sandwiches right out of people’s hands! Therefore, we were not trusting this guy, and he was not timid….he got quite close, and we ended up retreating inside with our food! He still kept hanging around, and I sent our friend outside to take some photos. We all know getting a camera out is a sure way to get rid of any kind of animal, pet or wildlife! She snapped some shots off, and I think that was the last we saw of him.
Also note our very nice view from our room of ocean, dunes, and river!
Last but not least, for those of you who love the ocean as much as I do, here’s a pretty shot of a sailboat, seen while we walked along the scenic Marginal Way that follows the coast from Ogunquit to Perkins Cove, Maine.
It’s always good to get back home to the furry and feathery crew, while at the same time sad having our annual summer trip behind us already!
