Down to the Marina

Hewwwow!  Finnackles here.  Sniffing out some local park action in preparation for my new cabinet position.  I had the Momma person drive me down to Smith Point Marina!  I should tell you, this was before that Sandy person blew her way through.  Momma says what we saw the day we went there probably doesn’t quite look the same now…

I had not been to a marina before. I did not know what to expect there. On the way down, Momma person told me there might be boats! I have never been in a boat. Anyways, someone forgot to tell her it was off-season, and there were no boats. No matter. I sniffed this place out.

And I made sure the local infrastructure was up to snuff.

I checked out where the boats would have been loaded and unloaded if it were summertime, ahem.

And then Momma let me play in the sand and water!

Four paws up!  We had a great time!

    A marina without boats strikes me as the very best sort of a marina. Lots of places to sniff out and no danger of being taken on a sea voyage! Love the photos of the sandy beach (and of you, of course, beautiful Finn).
    Toodle pip!

    We hope Sandy didn’t wreak too much havoc there.

    Thank’s for my taste of “home” Finn! Always great to see the Island sand once again. We’re so glad you had a great time there even if there were no boats to look at. Nothing better than that salt water breeze blowing thru your fur.

    Oh nice! I’m sure Monty would become a distant ship if we let him off leash near that much water.

    That looks like a great place to visit. I have not been on a boat either. But it looks like it would be fun. Maybe this summer.

    The marina looks like a great place to romp and do zoomies, Finn, even if the boats weren’t there. We hope it wasn’t too badly damaged by Sandy.

    Happy Sunday.

    Hey Finn, you get to go to a lot of amazing places. I’m not saying that you have it better than me, but I am saying you sure get to see a lot of cool diffferent places. Variety. That is what I am gonna have to talk to My Vickie about.

    Your are such a pretty girl, Finn, doing what all Goldens love…play and run in the sand!
    Ask Sugar, she’ll back me up! I hope Sandy didn’t ruin too much of the beach there so that
    you can go on future romps in the sand! Cyber belly rubs, Kathy
