Hello there!

You're all so sweet for checking in on me and leaving supportive comments.

Things are going pretty well. I'm in Virginia right now. Al got accepted into a 10-week school, and I told him that I thought he would be too lonely on the beach all by himself, so the dog and I had better go with him. We found a great condo on the beach, and Cosette loves running in the waves and trying to eat dead crabs. They're crunchy!

So, I'm probably going to start doing a little blogging again. I haven't decided if I'm going to do it here or on my travel blog or how often and when, but it'll probably be soon. Jay has been after me to start up again and you know how I fall to peer pressure.

Thanks again for all the kindness. A break was just what I needed.

Here are a couple of photos to update you on what's going on.

Cosette chills in the back of the Element on the drive out. She had it made--we set one of the seats up against the side, and she laid on top of a suitcase and used a gym bag to prop herself up on.

The view from the balcony off the master bedroom of our condo.

The beach. Dogs can only be on the beach from 7 at night until 9 the next morning.

At first, Cosette was afraid of the waves and tried to chase them back in. Now she loves it. I'll have those pictures later.

Talk to you all later.

Whoo hoo! Great to see you, Kell! Enjoy the beach--read a good book!

Now I will content myself with my soundmachine that makes ocean noises.

Popped over from Jay's. Welcome back. Sounds like he missed you. I enjoyed the pics. Great shot of your pooch. I could so want to be on that beach...

I always wondered how Spot would react to the ocean since he hates baths so much.

That looks like a great place, have fun!
