Jeez, this summer seemed to whiz by so fast! We celebrated Labor Day with a two-day trip to Flagler beach.
We took Twyla with us ~ her first time to the beach. We were so excited to see her reaction to the ocean. We thought she'd love it. She didn't.
What a baby! She whined and shivered like crazy when I tried to get her into the water. She wanted nothing to do with it and quickly scampered back under our umbrella.
We chose a dog-friendly beach just for her, but no matter, she spent most of her time on our laps, keeping a keen eye on the evil big water that continually made big booming noise!
We thought maybe she'd be shamed by all the other poochies playfully frolicking in the surf. Nope, she could've cared less! Her eyes told me, please don't take me back into that giant bath tub!
After sufficiently "torturing" Twyla, we stayed at this wonderful little old Florida motel, Si Como No Inn. The Inn is one of the few untouched, authentic motels from the 1950's left in Florida. We loved the kitschy Florida charm of the place, especially because they love dogs!
We woke up the next morning to more perfect weather and a stunning sunrise.
After two blissful days in Flagler it was time to head back to the farm. Waaaaa!

Sure hope you all had a nice long weekend too!
