That's a happy Pup. I'm off to my nine day kitty sitting adventure this afternoon but before I left town we got in a walk at the beach. I haven't been down there since the weather cooled off.
You can definitely feel a change in the air but I think my neighbors across the road are getting a little ahead of themselves. I should say that they also still have all their Christmas lights up but since they are the working parents of four small kids I will not judge.
The field of Black-Eyed Susans at the park were more black-eyed than Susan. Mine are too.
The Crepe Myrtles are already starting to turn.
Weird birds were everywhere. These are not your usual sea gulls. These things were the size of an eagle and they were all over the place. I think those are Great Black-Backed Gulls and they must be making a stop on their trip somewhere. At least I hope so. They are making a huge mess in all the places they were hanging out. They are very scary close up. They have sharp looking beaks and eyes that look at you like they are sizing you up for a meal.
The Bay itself was rough and dirty. The beach patrol was on duty raking up all the junk that was washing up on shore. The beach was practically empty which is a good thing since the place was a stinky mess. They are closing the pier this weekend for a wedding. Good luck with that. I hope those giant seagulls are gone by then or it might be a wedding to remember. Lol....
