Surfcaster Motel

Here I am enjoying myself at the Surfcaster Motel.  What a backyard this place has.  The Surfcaster Motel is pet friendly.  The man who owns it really liked me and told me that once some big cats stayed here too.  The young people who work in the restaurant liked me too.  They wanted to give me some pepperoni but my mom said no.

Sebastian Inlet State Park

Here I am once again freezing my tail off.  Mom gave me her jacket.  I thought we lived in the tropics.  This park was pretty.  There was a nice beach.  I saw surfers and pelicans.  Lots of pelicans.  Maybe we can come back when its warm and take proper pictures.  In the meantime we have to go home and hunker back down.

Here I am enjoying a cold ocean breeze with my mom.  My photographer didn't take very many pictures of me here.  My photographer says all beaches are starting to look alike.  If my photographer had her way we'd only go to springs.  This was a nice park but not really for dogs.  The only place I was allowed was the parking lot.

Fort Pierce Inlet

What a nice park.  My mom says its a lot like John Lloyd.  It is in the sense that there are lots of nice dog walks and picnic benches.  I even found a dog wash.  Like all of the parks, I am not allowed on the beach or in the water.  That is ok.  I read the sign.  Nobody was allowed in the water because there is dangerous marine life on the loose.  Sharks.  Man-of-War.  Just as scary as alligators.  Maybe worse.  I enjoyed the view from afar.  The nice volunteer at the park entrance thought I was cute and gave me a cookie.

Oleta River Part 2

Here I am refusing to drink a bowl of fresh water from the dog spigot.  I prefer the brackish water.  My Mom thinks I'm nuts drinking salty water.  I like the salty water.  What's wrong with salty water?

Here I am swimming with the cute boy who thought I was a bear.  His friends said "Look a bear!."  After they saw my Mom they realized I was just a dog.

Here I am drinking water at the dog wash.  I told you this place rocks.  It has everything a dog desires.

Here I am trying to call my friend Roxie to tell her all about it.  What a great park.  A dog phone and all!

Oleta River Part 1

Here I am at one of my favorite parks.  I love this park because they let me get in some of the water.  I am not allowed on the pretty people beach, but I am allowed a dip in kayaking water.  This park rocks.

Here I am welcoming a nice man back from his kayak adventure.

Here I am walking my Mom along the beach that dogs are allowed to walk on.  Its just as nice as the people beach if you ask me.  It's actually better as its not so crowded with people.

Hunkered Down

Here I am freezing my tail off.  I thought I lived in the tropics.  The TV said it snowed.  Am I delusional?  No one will take me to any parks because they say its too cold.  A frozen cuban lizard fell out of the tree and I played with it until my photographer found out and took it away from me.  My Mom is worried about Manatees dying.  I wonder if all the alligators will freeze.
