Savi surveys the damage..
Trixie thinks we should have stayed on vacation! We have a big clean up ahead of us and will have a lifetime supply of firewood!
We were truly lucky compared to those who suffered catastrophic damage from Hurricane Irene. Friends have had their houses flooded and our heart goes out to those people who have lost everything. Just a reminder to be as prepared as possible for you and your pets for emergency situations.

We couldn't imagine that the beach would be empty on such a gorgeous August day,
Jam loved spending time with us and running along the beach,
Here I come!
August is considered the best month for observing shorebirds on Cape Cod.
Irene only brought severe winds to the Cape and a little rain. The marsh in front of our house looked very different at high tide, more like a lake. There were branches down everywhere and for about 3 hours we lost power. In the late afternoon, we found one of the few restaurants open, many had no power, and then toured the beaches to see the waves.
There were 60-80 mph winds!
A houseboat moved into Pamet Harbor for protection.

Jam has a new talent, pointing crabs! She seems fascinated by them!
We picked this bouquet of wild lavender, one of the many pretty flowers that grow here.
Trixie waiting for us...

Savi is our resident retriever, loves to retrieve whether on land or in the water. We let her play with the Armadillo brand Quail toy that Jam won as a trophy for qualifying at the Tarheel Weimaraner Club Agility trial back in July.. Whar is amazing is that this salt marsh is right outside our house and at high tide becomes a fabulous place for the dogs to swim. At other times, the perfect place for a romp.
Savi and her quail toy
Life is good when you have a view like this!
Savi waiting for the throw...she's always ready for fun and games!
Jam, practicing her whoa and sister, Savi, did an automatic back, very cool.
There must be critters in these holes...
