Rigby’s first day at the beach and a bit of a post Christmas detox today at Philip Island for us (If you can count 2 potato cakes, a muffin and 3 coffees as a detox – maybe not…)
Another dog owner we met today said that puppies have a sort of reverse bucket list of things they should experience before they are 16 weeks old.
Well she’s met my family at Christmas and been to the beach so that should cover most of the potential scary things in the future.
The wind coming off Bass Strait made swimming an activity for the brave hearted, so we rock scrambled in that wonderful tidal zone bit of the beach and took some inspiration for the next painting – perhaps.
(The boy explained the geology of the various igneous, sedimentary and other rock types along the way) – the mix of black basalt and red sandstone is quite beautiful as it juts out like a Baboon’s head from Smith’s Beach.
Just a perfect day – especially for the dog and her boy – who were both a very tired pair on the way home.
