Everyday Adventures in Havachon Heaven

The Good, Crazy, & Adorable Life of One Havachon Puppy

Daisy’s Big Weekend Adventure!

on May 22, 2012

What a gorgeous summery weekend we had! Can you guess where we took Daisy for her first big summer adventure?

You got it – the beach! But not just any beach – this is an amenities-free beach and a nature preserve, a completely natural peninsula along our coast. No noisy boardwalk games, no oily fried smells filling the air, no man-made attractions detracting from nature’s beauty.

This was Daisy’s first time on a beach, and we were so excited to see how she’d react to the sand, the new salty-sea smells, the water, and all the other new discoveries.

Why is all that water rushing toward me? Is that a giant bathtub??

What’s that over there?

Needless to say, she LOVED it!

This is one happy pup! 😀

What a great time we all had! Daisy was constantly on the alert, chasing birds while they flew overhead, testing the salt water, checking out the sand (and deciding it wasn’t so tasty after all!), and investigating the newness of it all.

This is SO cool!

I’ll be posting more pictures of the great birds and other natural beauties of this place soon! 🙂

    Yay Daisy,

    That’s a lovely beach you’ve got there!! Glad you had so much fun – sounds like you’re gonna enjoy hangin’ at the beach this summer, maybe you’ll even take up surfing? 🙂

    Have fun,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    Ooh, looks like a beautiful vacation spot!

  3. Lucky aren’t you?
    I would love to go to a place like that right now.

      It’s such a great place to totally relax – off season. But once Memorial Day weekend hits, the crowds will be heavier and they’ll start charging high fees for parking, so we probably won’t go back until after Labor Day. But I’m sure we’ll find other new summer adventures! 🙂

    Wow, she looks really happy! Wish I could have been there! You are so lucky that you live so close to a beach like that. Glad Daisy enjoyed it! 🙂

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Yeah, Daisy’s face is like a barometer of her emotions. You can always see when she’s happy! 🙂 We feel so fortunate to live in an area where both the beach and wooded areas are easily accessible. I love being immersed in natural surroundings, it truly is food for my soul. 🙂

    What a great beach. We always managed to find the ones with dead, rotting walruses on them. It’s perfume to my dogs.

    Oh Boy…you can just see she is having a ball.

    Congratulations on your first big trip to the beach Daisy! Sounds like you had a wonderful time! 🙂

  8. magsx2 says:

    The beach is always a lot of fun for the dogs, for some unknown reason they all seems to love the beach. Daisy certainly look like she was enjoying her day out. 🙂

  9. Wooh, I’m glad that Daisy had a great time at the beach! 😀 Yes Daisy, that is a GIANT bathtub! 😉 tsktsk. It’s a good thing that Daisy didn’t go licking up the (DRY) sand like Poppy did and started doing the ridiculously funny snaring face right after. =P http://www.tumblr.com/photo/1280/baomihua/18545773027/1/tumblr_m079947i3h1r6l39v

    Happy Tuesday Daisy and Daisy Mommy! =D

    Dogs love the beach, they get so excited when they are there, and it looks like Daisy is no exception. So much to see, so many things to check out for her first time there. Glad she enjoyed it so much, love the pics.

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Thanks Barb! We were so happy to find a dog-friendly beach here, most of them aren’t (even off-season).This will be one of our regular haunts in spring and fall!

  11. Kroten says:

    Beautiful scenery 🙂
    and you looks sooooo happy Daisy. I would love to have a walk in the beach too…but Mommy will never let me 😉

  12. That looks like a great time, Hopefully Torrey and I will get to the beach someday.

  13. What wonderful photos! The last two are particularly nice of Daisy. She looks so ready to do this again and again! I love the ocean and a nature preserve is so perfect for really just drinking in the sun and the smells (and sand) without the usual beach chaos. Although I’ll take it even with the chaos! I’m sure as summer gets underway Daisy will be asking for a return trip! She needs a little sun hat! 🙂 Debra

  14. Sounds like a fun time. Daisy looks like she’s having the time of her life 🙂

  15. nalasdogdays says:

    Daisy looks so happy 🙂 It’s so great how summer is finally here! And it’s equally great how tired dogs are after such a getaway, they sleep like babies 🙂

  16. Paws To Talk says:

    Daisy it looks like you had a great time! We love the photos!
    Bella and DiDi

  17. So glad you had fun at the beach, Daisy!! Hope you get to go there many more times this summer!

  18. 2browndawgs says:

    It sure looks like Daisy had a wonderful time. The brown dawgs have never been to the ocean. I bet they would love that beach too. 🙂 The pictures are beautiful and I cannot wait to see more.

  19. rumpydog says:

    It does look like great fun!

    Lucky dog…..

  21. Kas says:

    That looks like SO much fun for Miss Daisy!! Our guys are jealous … 🙂

  22. Jackie Paulson says:

    Hey Daisy nice to see you and the beach…it’s been awhile. I am working 12 hr days doing security and off weekends, all I do is sleep. Miss you much ♥ jackie

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Hey Jackie so good to see you again! That’s a rough work schedule you have, I can understand why you’re so tired on the weekends. Hope your schedule gets better soon. Have a good holiday weekend! 🙂

  23. Dear beloved Daisy!! Mom and i passed on another award to you! 😛 Thank you… from the bottom of our hearts for welcoming us to the furkids blogging community, and for sharing your love, stories,

    We see that you’ve already gotten this award TWICE, but no harm done, now you have another Daisy! 😀

    • raisingdaisy says:

      Thank you so much Poppy! You’re so sweet to think of us and pass this award on to us, and we certainly don’t mind having an award passed on to us multiple times. 😀 We love your blog and especially love those adorable photos of little Poppy – she gives us some of our biggest AWWWWs! 🙂

  24. Daisy, looks like you had a pawesome blast! Hope you wore the suncream!


    • raisingdaisy says:

      Heehee I really did! The sunscreen works great on my pink skin, but unfortunately my family always insists on giving me a bath afterward. Oh well, a small price to pay for a fun day! 🙂

  25. Those birds must have been a blast to chase around!
