Day at the beach!

MrC and I took the big birds to the beach today, because it's totally a normal thing to do to take your parrots for a walk, right?






(Goofy was being a bit nippy and wouldn't stay on MrC's hand or on the stroller towards the end, so the stick had to come out.)

Re: Day at the beach!

So jealous! Severe beach shortage in Indiana. My winter driving tip this year was "Keep going until you see palm trees" but that only worked for ten days.

Re: Day at the beach!

Oh, Kentuckyienne, I thought you might commiserate with me with this picture. Just look at the way Charlotte looks at MrC with such adoration in her eyes. I have been relegated to the ranks of the unchosen since October.

Re: Day at the beach!

not trying to be snarky, but how do you prevent Charlotte from getting sunburned? Looks like a lovely day at the beach

Re: Day at the beach!

She's only out in direct sun for a couple of minutes (mostly for pictures). Then there's umbrellas and other shade creating items. We're working with her to accept a little t-shirt. I'm a fair skinned red-head so I go out without sunscreen so I can feel what's happening to my skin as a gauge of what's happening to hers and if I'm starting to get warm, it's time to get her in the shade again.

Edited to add: we also don't stay out very long at all. Today was about an hour. This beach is less than 15 miles from my house...about a 15-20 minute drive depending on traffic.

Re: Day at the beach!

I usualy hate the beach as I am not a fan of sand in the nethers, but taking a stroll with Salty might be one way for Geri to get me to go more often.

Re: Day at the beach!

We just go to walk, usually along the boardwalk. I like being near the ocean, and my favorite bar in the county is on that beach, so it's nice to stop in for a beer once a month or so.

Must say, daughter number four and I ran out to see my son in Illinois a couple years ago and for a day trip, we ran into Missouri for a nice beach cookout. Well, when we got there daughter number four was quite upset to see a lake, she took it for granted we were going to be at the ocean! Yes, her geography is a little off!

Oh, I do empathize. When Oliver looked at his human it was with the same devotion. When he looked at me, I could see him calculating whether he needed something badly enough to summon me over. It was usually a brief calculation that ended with me becoming invisible.
