My Summer Vacation

I will be leaving to go on vacation, on July 18th, we will be touring the South. Leaving from our home in Spring Hill, Florida, through Georgia and the Carloinas to Roanoke Virginia where will visit with Dad's family, attend a wedding and a memorial service for Dad's mom. Then it's on to Tennessee, Knoxville, Crossville, Nashville and on to Memphis where we will visit with friends for a few days and maybe do a little boating (you know that's one of my favorite things to do) on Pickwick Lake. I have never been boating on a lake, but mom says I will like it, different from the Gulf, no salt, she says I can even drink from this lake. I am looking forward to it. My sister Coopie was born in Memphis and she wants to get back to see what's new there. The last leg of our trip will take us through Mississippi and Alabama and back through the Florida panhandle. I will be posting pics (taken with my borrowed camera, if you didn't hear about my camera see my earlier post) for all to see. I will be taking pictures where ever we go and posting them. I hope by the time I get back to be able to put together a slide show, maybe I will call it "What I Did On My Summer Vacation" or maybe not, but we will with a little luck have a good slide show. All of this will come to past if the borrowed camera works properly, if not then I will just be posting without my pics. Not as much fun but still I will be able to document where my travels have taken me. Coopie and I will be having a tail wagging good time. Kitty Boy will be staying home as he does not like to travel. The neighbors will be taking care of him. Look for updates real soon!!!

A Day on the Gulf

It was Saturday July 8th and we loaded up to take the boat out on the Gulf of Mexico for the day. The car ride to the boat was exhilirating as usual, my favorite saying is "let's ride", and the trip out to the swimming area on the boat was pretty unenventful. We had been out at the swimming area for a little while and I was tired of sunbathing (I use lots of sunscreen) so I decided it was time for a swim. I "woofed" for Mom to come get me, I do not like to jump off the boat unless Mom or Dad are there to help. Mom was standing in knee deep water a few feet from the boat and she came right over to help. When I got in the water Mom notice that our digital camera was also in the water, the case strap was wrapped around my back leg and it just came in with me. Mom rescued the camera and dried it out but it would not work, so no pics from the boat that day. (The pics in this enrty were taken over Memorial Day Weekend.) Anyway the day was still fun and I did a lot of swimming. The camera is in for repairs and will cost $60, not as bad as Dad thought. He was sure the camera was a total loss. Anyway this is where we go swimming in the Gulf of Mexico of Hernando Beach, Florida.
