We have had cooler weather for the last week. It is downright CHILLY, in the 70's with a dip to the 60's for early morning hours. H-Mom has a fleece jacket that she loves when it is cool, and it is good too, because there is the perfect depth pocket for training treats.
One morning this week, there was a fog warning. It just seems like fog is something for the rolling hills and valleys of the northern U.K., but we do sometimes get a "tropical" fog in south Florida. The white stuff was hanging low over a few parking lots, the dog park and a huge cemetery that we drive past on the way to play.
Here you can see the fog across the street from the dog park, lingering over an industrial lot. It was kind of mysterious and calming for our early morning walk.
Yesterday evening, we all went to Coconuts, a wonderful Fort Lauderdale restaurant that bills itself as "dog-friendly for friendly dogs." Well-behaved canines are allowed EVERYWHERE, even in at the bar. When people place their order, the waiters always bring a stainless dog bowl with ice water and a milkbone! Madison has been there twice now, once for lunch on the deck overlooking the intracoastal, and last night for an early dinner, again on the deck. She was entertained watching the giant pelicans catching pita bread that Man-Dad was tossing on the pier.
Our sunset doesn't match the beautiful Key West sunset, but it was pretty impressive, over the Intracoastal and the yachts in the Bahia Mar harbor. It was warm sitting in the sun, but it definately got cooler as it got dark. Madison was very nicely behaved, even though she let out a few very loud, high-pitched YIPS on a rather random basis.
The girl just needs attention. And a second dog biscuit would have been appreciated ... after all ... the humans ordered appetizers AND a main course.
