my two loves, (a story)

Joe and I went to the Washington coast.

It was beautiful.

Nina made a friend. His name was Cuda.
She liked to chase him.

They liked to chase sticks.

They didn't always agree about the ownership of the stick, however.

There were lots of dramatic skies at the beach.

And cool frothy stuff near the water.

Nina didn't let the fear of freezing water stop her from getting soaked.
Oh no.

Once, Joe went back to the condo to get his rubber boots.
Even though he was very far away, Nina spotted him.

We took a family photo.

And then we played on the beach some more.

On the third day, it was very windy and rainy.
Joe thought it would be a good idea to wear a plastic poncho.

Nina didn't like the poncho.

Did I mention it was windy???

Photobucket

Despite the wind, Nina still dug holes.
Holes are her favorite.

And then Joe threw the stick again.
He is a master stick-thrower.

Nina loves Joe.

I love them both.

The end.
