Beach Vacation 2011

So guess where Razz and I were this past week…

Does this give you a clue?

Or this?

That’s right, Bethany Beach! Well, sort of, we were at a private beach in between Bethany and South Bethany called Middlesex Beach in Delaware. These pictures were taken at the house that we stayed at. The house didn’t technically allow dogs but, shhhh, I won’t tell if you won’t.

So like many of the beaches in Delaware during the summer, dogs aren’t allowed on the beach :( But there is one, it’s the same one that Amy took me to last year, Dewey Beach! For two mornings in a row, we all woke up early and drove to Dewey so Razz and I could enjoy some fun in the surf.

I was a little timid at first because it had been a year since my last beach visit but after a little while I felt comfortable and was jumping in the water. This was Razz’s first time at the beach and while she didn’t buck at the water like I did, she didn’t dive right either. I’ll post a video of me jumping into the water and riding in the waves as soon as I can post it on YouTube.

We went to the beach the day after Hurricane Irene struck the Mid-Atlantic so the first morning we were at Dewey, there was hardly anyone on the beach. On the second day, people started trickling in so at one point I had to be tethered to the life guard chair to let some other dogs passed. As you can see from this picture, I am not happy about this. Um…hello…the beach is that way.

Oh and in case you were wondering about those Bethany cookies, Amy and David bought those for us at a doggie boutique in Bethany Beach. We did eventually get to eat them and they were yummy!
