This is Harley, he's a Clydesdale at the Lawton Stables. He used to pull Budweiser carriages, but now he just gives carriage rides and mostly hangs out in a pasture with the ponies, which make him look even more like a giant.
We're both six years old, but Harley is over 6-feet tall at the shoulder and weighs over a ton! He's a real sweetheart and comes right over to the fence when you call him (unlike me!).
We pass Harley on the way to and from the beach. Isn't he fantastic? Okay. Now off to the beach. Here's a new pal I met on our walk last night. (It's been raining off and on all day today so no beach walk today. I did get to go to Tailwaggers Shop and Bakery for some treats!)
I thought this fella might be fun to play chase with, since he looks to be made of rubber and might bounce along the beach...
...Hey! How about this starfish gal? Let's race to see who fetches the ball first. I'll even give her a headstart...on your mark...get set...go!....
...Ahh, she ran over to meet this little cutie patootie. Her name was Colette and this was the first starfish she'd ever found!
Now, Mommy took this photo when she was out on our friends' boat, but almost every day we see these smiling guys and gals out in the waves. We even saw a baby the other day!
Now for the past four days, there's been a man down on the beach making these awesome sand sculptures. There HUGE! That lighthouse is almost 5 feet tall!
He has all sorts of equipment besides just pails and shovels. And he does something to the sand to keep them from getting blown apart or washed away by our almost daily downpours this week.
I thought I'd try my paw at sandcastle building. What do you think? It's a perfect replica of a castle near Rosie's house in Scotland, right?
