Beach dog.

Let me state the obvious, living on Maui we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to beaches. The one I frequent most is Kanaha and I always feel sorry for tourists dropped off by the cheesy cruise ship cable car bus. I suspect 99% of them have the idyllic ‘lay down and read whist getting a perfect tan’ beach picture in mind, and not the ‘get sand blasted with 25 knots (gusting to 30) this feels like shit’ reality.

It’s more a water sport, wet suit, grab your gear & go type beach and I love it for that reason as there’s always something good to watch, like ME for example!

Moving down the coast to another beach I saw this. Talk about being dog tired, that's exactly what the owner of 'Max' must have felt after pulling his Collie back and forth on his very own boogie board. The dog really did not want to get it’s paws wet or his fur ruffled and stood stead fast whilst being yanked over the low tide rocks.
BTW- according to the top 3 names for dogs in the UK are Max, Ben & Buster while in the US it's Max, Buddy & Rocky. But wait, here's another little known fact, Barking Sands Beach, on Kauai is known for its unusual dry sand that squeaks or "barks like a dog."
Jesus, I'm losing the will to live from the shear boredom of my own blog.........

The End.

Perhaps you need a vacation, Sharon?

When was the last time you were in New York? This is the perfect time to visit, sistah!

Touche Bunty!

At the risk of stating the obvious my life & blog are both ab-fab, it was my doggie facts that anesthetized me(and whoops you my dear reader)into a atate of premature inertia!

To answer your question. 1990.

Who the hell calls a site "Doggywoggy" - Materwater is appalled:-)

My favourite picture was the sand and sea - a MUST to paint.
