I needed something really low key, so today’s plan was to just head down to the beach for a quick run and to have breakfast. Doods and Rotts. I needed to get out of town and to feel the sand, the ocean, breeze. I didn’t even plan to really take any pictures. Maybe just a snap or two with the camera on my phone.
That plan seemed to be going as expected. Just another day at the beach. Pun intended! These pictures show what I mean…this is how the usual beach morning goes. I run up and down the beach and the boys trot along at the water’s edge. I can’t really carry the big camera when we are running so I left it at home. Darn it…big mistake. I didn’t know that Sam was going to do something super unexpected!
It’s not like a miracle for the ages or anything, but in our usual post-run game of fetch, Sam was exceptionally brave and was running out into the water to fetch the ball. And by water, I mean ocean! What? Really? Yes, really!! He never does this. He’s notoriously afraid of the water and would never willingly run into the water—ocean, river or pool.
I still can’t believe it. We had just a great time…Not only were Sam and Luke running around in the water (Sam more than Luke), the Rotts were in the water, too. It was an unprecedented day, all the way around. I took the best pictures I could get with my phone and some videos, too. I’ll upload those later…I think they could potentially fall into the boring home movie category, but I am going to do it anyway.
Here are the photos from today. I had some editing fun with them, since they were not the best quality.
