Dogs at Lake Dora

We are home...

We have finally returned from a fun but exhausting trip! Trip up was great we made good time and had no traffic to speak of. The clinic went pretty well. Weather held, we didn't have any rain just some pretty warm moments:-)) The dogs got to work once when we first got there and each one had one go once we were doing the clinic. They did pretty well considering they were locked in crates the better part of the trip.

Monday afternoon we visited with a new friend and got to see her lovely farm. She had some great hiking trails and the dogs had a blast. I will try to find Evy's frog hunting pics! But the dogs really had a great time running on the beautiful cool trails and jumping in the pond after frogs and fish, exactly what they needed after being pent up for so long.
Tuesday morning we left the Boston area for RI. We found a great little beach that we took the dogs on. My guys weren't real sure of the wake on the rocks but they had fun exploring. Beautiful rocks and water it was a nice relaxing spot to sit a while and just watch.
This is Wimby and Evy on the Cliff walk in Newport. What beautiful scenery and the dogs were whipped after taking a 2 mile walk in the heat so we packed them back up and headed for strawberry picking, YUMMY!

Sally on the pretty beach with the rocks. They had a big time rolling in some crab shells too:-)

Evy trying to figure out the waves coming up. She also had a taste, yucky!

The girls final pic in RI at the strawberry farm. Nice little organic farm, strawberries were the only thing pickable but they also had an orchard and Christmas trees. I got some yummy local cheese and bread too.
After our picking adventure we went to Flo's Crab Shack; had a lobster roll and Fishermans platter. Flo's was on Diners, Driveins and Dives, I'm pretty sure I saw the episode but wasn't sure. Fun food, my first lobster roll, pretty tasty, the fish, shrimp and scallops were fantastic!
Our trip home was slow starting found a cute craft co op to get some gifts and got on the road pretty late. The traffic and weather did not cooperate well but we did finally make it home and were so happy!!
I will look through the remaining pics and post more later.


  1. Sounds like an excellent trip. The pictures from the beach are beautiful. I love Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. I will have to mention Flo's Crab Shack to my dh. Maybe a small road trip is in order!
