This morning, we attempted a little outing to the beach. We weren't too successful, though, as the sand and the sun were a little too hot for our little black dog. She wasn't really digging it. So much, that she made a beeline for the shaded spot under the walkway to the ocean front. She's a little bit of a wuss. But we love her anyway. Needless to say, we didn't last long, but long enough for me to wear my new suit in the sun for a little bit. And least I got the chance to look cute in my beach chair for about 15 minutes before we called it quits.
