This past weekend I finally got to bring my dog out on the boat for the first time this summer. She just loves it. I think she is part fish and will swim all day if you let her.
Summer is a Golden Doodle. (that's French for 'I paid a lot of money for a Mutt') Her dad was a Golden Retriever her Mom a Standard Poodle. She is not supposed to Shed.. (she does just not like a typical dog) She has been a great dog, a true people person.
My initial intention was to run down to Tices Shoal which is on the bay side of Island Beach State Park, one of my favorite places.... because one of the goals was to go Kayaking at the same time, and the Sedge Islands on the southern end of the park make for great kayaking. I also wanted to bring the new Kayak, but it's a little big to put on the boat, and my wife did not want to scratch it up I guess the KayakI built is just too pretty??? So we took two of the Ocean Kayaks we have that fit on the boat better, and They are indestructible...
Of course... Story of my life, we got a late start. Part the Wife's fault... She just had to go to the Gym that morning... Part my fault, while she went to the Gym, I played on the rain and did not get things ready to go! So Rather than the long trip down the bay we opted for a closer location... Silver Bay in Toms River, Cattus Island Park another great place you can visit by water in Ocean County. It is in Toms River and has a decent beach for the bay, just not as secluded as the sedge islands.
As usual, No camera! but always have my Blackberry! so these are a few shots courtesy of my BB.
Here she is Begging to go back in the water, She actually listens and wont jump in unless I let her... That is a good thing!
Unfortunately I dont have may photos, since pictures always seem to be an afterthought. Memories always are better than a picture can capture. Also, something about my phone by the water... just not a recipe for anything good! I got her back in the boat because I was afraid of her getting tired and she was chasing the kayaks. She Swims well, but cant really keep up with a kayak!
I just noticed that my son is hiding. I was paying more attention to the dog!
After this she swam into the beach and got to run up and down the beach and swim with another dog. She had a great day and slept the whole way home.
I had to throw in a last shot of my wife paddling. She kept paddling out and riding boat wake (waves) back in. The fun part about a kayak is they will actually surf waves.
She has such a genuine smile when she is paddling, that's why I built her the pretty kayak, so I can see that smile more often. I think it is the only time she lets go of all the things that bother her.
Ocean County has so much to offer, especially if you have a boat to go explore it. I really do love NJ and cant see myself living anywhere else.
Have a great week, I hope you enjoyed the few pictures.
