Kite boarders-zoom in!

On our way to The Spit, I love Daizy's timing, she always seems to know when we're almost "there".

Until I buy a good camera...if there is a picture that looks like there's a speck of dirt on it, please zoom in......and you'll see something that I would have captured if I had a zoom feature on my cell.  ie. the last picture below, the boarder caught some crazy air!

On our way there was a movie crew filming some sort of Dragon movie.   I was worried that they were filming along the estuary trail, and relieved that they were further into the woods.  The trailers were lined up along the road.  I didn't see any stars.  Mind you I rarely watch tv, so unless they happen to make the supermarket covers, I probably wouldn't have recognized who they were anyways :)  

Movie trailers
Keegan near the water.  He's going through an awkward puppy growth stage where his head looks like it's bigger than his body.  It's funny how one week they'll grow taller, the next they'll grow longer.  With Daizy I was convinced I got a Basset Hound instead of a Beagle, but it all works out in the end :)
Boy I wish I had the guts to do this, it looks like so much fun!
Please zoom in, this guy is catching some serious air!

I was talking with a newbie surfer and he compared the thrill of kite surfing/boarding to waterskiing and instead of a boat steering you....you have a child in control of the wind patterns.  Exhilarating and unpredictable!   Start up is $$$ around 3k but 1 yr membership is only $150.
I think Darrell's going to try this for his B-day in August.

I stopped in to say hi. I have a sister named Daisy--she's an old beagle but still quite feisty. It looks like you have such fun on the hikes.

love & wags,
River the beagle

thank you so much for stopping by!

I'll have to visit your site! I'm new to blogging, but so far it's been a lot of fun collecting memories for this online scrap book and I am hoping to meet other beagle and dog lovers along the way.

cheerios for now, it's time for our agility class tonight :)
