Some of my favorite memories have been just hanging out on the docks with like minded people. Turns out, some think you are a little strange for wanting to live on the water. Hmm… Fortunately, pictures say a thousand words and the below pictures do this afternoon justice. We watched as a friend threw the ball off the dock and his pup, Patina, jumped in right after it. Then we watched Bristol learn to jump off the dock for the first time. It was very interesting to watch as she got better at her doggie paddle. Much less splashing as the afternoon went on.
And the best pictures of them all? That is right! To all you nay sayers, non believers, and dream killers (insert LOTS of sarcasm here), Enzo and I took the next step on my dream of SUP with him. You can read about how I obtained my SUP here, a great story in my opinion. No one believed me at first, and I just kept putting it out in the universe that one day Enzo and I would paddle board. Now, we took a huge step forward with him on the board!
While we still have a ways to go, at least we are making progress. I was not at all ready to take him away from the safety of the dock as there is no doubt in my mind I will end up in the water the first couple times. At the end of the day, a wonderful afternoon hanging out with good people and great dogs on the docks! Life really is about relationships, experiences, and memories, not the stuff we can obtain.
