The beach offers many opportunities for the dog and the photographer to play… As dog the water and sand provide an interesting landscape full of sights, sounds and scents.
We recently toodled down to Port Gamble. An autumn requirement. It is a beautiful town any day of the year but a day in fall is the best. It is made for this season. We went out to walk the trails and discovered two things I never knew were there. (Some of you will have known of these gems for years but many, I am sure, do not). There is a pond complete with ducks, lily pads (some sort of aquatic vegetation) and great photographic opportunities. And my dog, Shiloh, found all sorts of neat smells. And looked great as she is a retriever and was quite at home amongst the tall grasses and waterfowl.
The contest is over and the it was a photo finish! A special thank you for all the talented photographers that summited photos! The top 5 photos and their photographers will be featured in an upcoming post.
Here are the final vote counts!
Golden Retriever puppies attack!
One of the things I loved to do when I was a kid, was clam jump. Clam jumping is where you jump on the sand around clams to try and make them squirt. If you have not done it, get off the computer and get outside and try it. It is a lot of fun. One time my son jumped and got squirted in the mouth. He still talks about that today.
Here is a video clip from our last Clam Jumping Event.
As you can see it is fun. If you are interested in Joining the International Clam Jumping Federation, leave a comment below.
