Ralle at the Pacific Ocean

The water is a little salty.
After all those many walks along the ocean in beautiful Jonstorp, Viken, Helsingborg, at Kullaberg and many places in between here we are on the Gold Coast. Amazing it is!  Ralle seems as at home here as there.  He is an ambassador for his breed no matter where he is.

As Ray had an appointment in Carmel the other morning Linnea, David and I with our wonderful dogs Ralle and Buddie decided to come along.  He dropped us off near Asilomar Beach near Monterey and we went exploring on the beach and on the many mile long beach walkways.  What a great morning it was!

Many years ago David and I used to go and spend special weekends at this place.  There is a convention center where we could rent a room very inexpensively,  if they had rooms left over..... for us this is a very special place indeed.

With scenery like this, how could one go wrong!

It was a good morning for all of us, especially Buddie and Ralle.  Loads of dog traffic here so a fun adventure for our two four footed friends. Loads of sniffing going on.

The sound of the water and the waves smashing against the rocks is both awesome and comforting.

Walking in wet sand too......

with the color of the water being truly aquamarine this particular morning...

Everyone was having fun.
watching lot's of folks having fun, playing in the water...

Ralle leaves his mark in the sand.
leaving our temporary marks in the sand ..

enjoying the wind, the view, the scent and the sound,

Linnea and Buddie.
 most of all having the pleasure of Linnea's company.  That is life at it's BEST!
