Cape Cod Poodles and labs

I took so many fun pictures on our little trip, I might just do 4 or 5 posts to share them! 

In this picture, we are windblown and hot from a summer's day on Cape Cod. The land behind us is the very tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown and the very place the Mayflower stopped to let the Pilgrims on land after their long voyage. They went on to Plymouth before settling their new digs. 

A couple days after our visit, Cher hosted a fund raiser for Hillary here. A Cher and Hillary siting would have made a great story!
 I have other pictures of the town, plus some absolutely lovely pics of Cape Cod seashore for later. As well as stories about our adventure. 

At the above moment, we stood for a long time looking at the beach scene in front of us, and watching walkers in the sunset...
 These women obviously walk this beach often as the two dogs were friends and explored the beach together. A lab and a poodle. 
I had a lab and a poodle who loved labs.  (They never got to meet)

I watched them all the way down the beach and back. Darting amid boats beached at low tide, checking out critters together, running ahead, looking back at their people, then coming back to touch their peeps' legs with wet noses. 
Buddies. 
Little bit there had a bandage on his tiny poodle foot. 
 I saw this in town, and it made me laugh. It's a town full of happy dogs and people busy being unique and free. Humor is encouraged here. 

I saw this in a garden of statues next to an art gallery.
It is an Apache Blessing, and it says:
May the sun bring you new energy by day
May the moon softly restore you by night
May the rain wash away your worries
May the breezes blow new strength into your being
May you walk gently through the world and know it's beauty all the days of your life

More to come... LeeAnna

  5. I love beach vacations but my red-headed husband doesn't. So I mostly enjoy other people's beach vacation stories. Cape Cod is definitely on my bucket list. Someday! Looks like you had a relaxing time.

  13. It looks like a very cool trip. Not having been to the cape, I thank you for sharing your adventures and imagine it was your fur angels that 'guided' you toward that beach to capture the image of the Lab and poodle. So sweet, so tender. ღ
