Nature Friday - Our Beach - by Phod

Deal Pals,

Last week we had record breaking heat. It was in the 36C/98F one day and 2 days later, it was cold enough for a frost warning.

However, during those really hot couple of days, the best thing ever happened. I got to go to my beach for the first time this year!

I thought you may enjoy a tour of my beach.

This is our private beach. It is about 500 steps from our front door.

When you go down there is a fence. This is to keep the geese from making a mess. I hate it because I can't just run right in. 

Hurry up Man

It is very easy to move and only takes Man a minute. I have to wait patiently. You can see our dock (we own 1/3 of it -we share it) and our neighbour's boat. 

Once the fence is out of the way,  I am ready to swim! The first time I go into the lake every time, I don't wait for my peeps to throw my bumper. I just run right in!

This is my happy place. I do look forward to the water warming up more. It is only about 5C/42F (it will get as warm as 25C/77F or so. The temperature does not stop me! 

I hope you enjoyed my tour. See you at the beach! 

Thanks to Rosy and the Boyz for hosting this hop!

  9. Happy Nature Friday!! We love seeing your beach and glad you got to visit this year for the first time. We love seeing you having fun in the water. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos. Have a fun time.

  10. What a swell beach you have even if you block out the geese (heck I'd block them out too-nobody want to step in goose poop!). So which third of the dock belongs to you guys, front, middle or rear? 😆 Have fun in the water!

  11. Well Aunty HiC had no idea you lived 500 steps from such a gawgeous water front. Now I see why all the critters love your property. It is about location location location...they have all they need at their paw tips.

  12. What do you call Canada Geese in Canada? I ask because our Japanese-born neighbor would only refer to a certain insect as "those beetles."

  13. Gail is SO envious of your beautiful private beach, and wants to know if Lady and Man ever go in the lake for a swim?
    Toodle pip!

  14. How lucky you are to have a beach so close!!! It looks like a lot of fun to us, Phod.
