Beach Photos

I'm finally going to make my post about the beach! Well, sort of - it might be a little abbreviated, because Woman is really busy with work.

We left on Thursday night (April 23rd) for the North Carolina coast, Topsail Beach to be more precise. There were 7 of us in Nate's truck. Nate and Ian in the front, Sarah, Margarita, Woman and me in the back and Buddy in the waaay back (the bed). Ian was trying to make me ride in the bed, but Woman wasn't having it. The ride was 6 1/2 hours. Too long with that many people, but we made the best of it. I sneezed on Margarita 14 times. She was not impressed.

We got to the beach house late - like 2:00am late. The People and I immediately went to bed.

Nate's familys' beach house is really nice - like Donald Trump nice. Here is a photo of it all trailer-parked up with beach towels hanging from it.

It's 4 stories - 7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms. We calculated that it can sleep 21 people and countless dogs. No cats though - they're forbidden from the beach.

Let's take a quick tour. Here's the living area.

This is where the People cook food that does not get shared with me.

Here is where they eat the food whilst ignoring me.

And here's where I slept.

I told you it was really nice.

We even had our own maid.

OK, not really. That's Jane. She came up on Friday afternoon, because she couldn't leave Thursday night.

The house also has a hot tub. I did not get into the hot tub though.

We spent a lot of time on the beach, and Woman was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. When we went to the lake last Summer, I was not a fan, so Woman figured I was going to be a pain all weekend, but I loved playing in the water, chasing seagulls and sunbathing. She said I was a very good boy and obeyed most of the time. I deny this, so don't get any ideas that I'm going soft or something.

Here I am running around the beach. Do you see that shallow little lagoon that has been formed by the tide? I liked to play in that water. It only came up to my chest, and it was nice and warm. I got really dirty and had to be hosed down. Not fun.

Here I am napping with Woman.

I also enjoyed just watching the water. It's mesmerizing. It was telling me to do bad things, but I resisted its force.

Woman said I was getting too much sun on my head, so I had to wear this hat. LOL!

Actually, the hat was Ian's.

It was kind of chilly the second day on the beach, so Woman and I snuggled for a while.

The beach makes my eyes water. I guess it's from the sand.

The People had crabs one night. This crab was having his last meal before becoming a meal himself!

There were also lots of adult beverages like this one.


We all had lots of fun and hope to get to go back again this summer. Thanks Nate's family for sharing your beach house with us!

    First, the house is amazing. If my family owned it, we would be there every chance we got! It sounds like springtime is better for Pugs on the beach than the hot, sticky summer. Hey, that could be a new drink, “Pugs on the Beach”. Ha! Ha! What combination of alcohol would that have?! That last picture is insanely cute … I just want to hug you to death cute!
