Stan at Garrarus Beach, Co. Waterford

momentary pause

basking in sea of choices ~

the perfect freedom

  1. Jealously I say…. lovely and sweet. My special guy (Henry the golden) has been gone for over a year now, and how I wish I could take him for a walk on the beach. Stan is obviously a scholar and a gentleman. Give him a pet from me.

    1. My heart goes out to you over Henry the Golden. A day never goes by that my precious Sophie who died 18 months ago doesn’t enter my thoughts.
      I’ll happily give Stan a pet for for. ‘A scholar and a gentleman,’ ~ I’ll be looking a little differently at him from now on!!

  2. Life at the seashore…Seeing things that we can not…..What is he thinking…

    One of my favorite places..lucky you to have such a beautiful dog..reminds me of our grand-dog Buster who has since passed on…

  3. I love the sea and I love dogs…your photo and wonderful words were just that….wonderful:):)

  4. This must be what “doggie heaven” feels like–he is in his element and savoring it and we can just savor right along with him in the emotion the picture elicits.
