First, here's a video of the Pacific Ocean...you'll see Ginger and the canine friend she played with for a while... plus some seals. Yep, there were four of them. Actually, if I hadn't just told you they were seals, you might not have known...
For those of you who can't see video (Mom :) here's some still shots. In this picture below, Ginger was SO excited to be in the water. Here, she's crossing a little river to get to the ocean. Rema and I had to take off our shoes and wade across this .... rather cool, frigid, foot-numbing water. Actually, it wasn't that bad.
There goes Ginger...she didn't stop!
I just love the water... the sea gulls ... it's all so beautiful ... so why don't I go to the beach more often?
That's Ginger way out there...see her head?
Now, the next trio of pictures was amazing. Rema and I just kept watching. There was this duck just swimming along in the water. Ginger went and paddled up just behind it... never bothered it, just swam along behind it. After a little bit, she swam up beside the duck and just swam with her. The duck didn't seem bothered by Ginger, and Ginger was just it's little protector.
Yep, it was a great way to start the new year...
