Golf Balls and Beaches

I have not been going out much since the arrival of my sister, Ashley and my parents were feeling a little guilty about not giving me as much attention as before, so they decided to make it up to me and try to include me in their outings as much as possible.

Dad found a golf driving range near our new place and took the whole family out to watch him swing some clubs. That was not exactly a good idea cause the whole time, I was trying to be Dad's caddie to help him retrieve his golf balls and Mom had a hard time controlling me, so it looks like this is going to be my last trip to the driving range. Sigh.....

I kept a close watch on Ashley while they had dinner there.

The weather looked good on Saturday and we decided to go to the White Sand Beach which is about half an hour's drive from home. It was a really hot day, so Ashley stayed at home with Grandma.

The beach certainly looked inviting, but the sand was too scorching hot and the heat was unbearable and so, we did not go into the water.

There are many shops like this selling floats and beach wear.

We ended up in Hana's Beach Cafe for shelter and lunch.

Dad had Beef with Rice and Mom had Tuna Omelet.

It was nice to stay out of the sun, guess we will have to conquer the beach again either in the evenings or when it is cooler.

I did not go swimming, but I was sure exhausted after the day's outing. ZZZzzz...

Hi Dino! Sorry I have not been visiting for AGES!! Am catching up now on all your posts that I've missed!

Shame about the beach - I keep forgetting that it is mid-summer in Taiwan because it is winter here in NZ! :-)

I think you're very luck to have humans who remember and think of you, even with a new baby! So many humans just forget all about the dog when their own pup comes!
