My Vacation!

We drove in the car for a long time, and it was still raining... Mom was worried that it was going to rain all weekend. Imagine my surprise, when Mom and Dad put me on the boat. OMD! This was NOT my boat!!!!!!!!!! Whose boat was this? It smelled different and it was a little larger than my old "Salty Dog".

Oh wellI will explore it later, boats make me sleepy, we were up and running in the
Gulf of Mexico!

After we docked the boat at the Marina (it was called Twin Dolphins in Bradenton, FL)
I got to explore the inside of the boat. It is bigger inside too! Here I am jumping off of the v-berth in the front of the cabin.


Scampi liked the v-berth, he likes being up high

Here we both are under the dinette and on the floor.

I am tired! All of that exploring exhausted me, time for a nap!
Mommy said it finally stopped raining after a brief evening shower,
Then we saw this pretty rainbow! What a nice way to spend our first night!

I must say I am impressed by the way you both seem so relaxed on that boat. I have only been boating a couple of times and I was definitely NOT relaxed!
Looking forward to hearing more about your adventures.
Cheers, H.

The sound of the water and the rocking of the boat always makes my momma want to nap too.

Our momma ordered us life-jackets so that we can go boating too! But it'll be on a smaller boat and not on the ocean. Not nearly as grand as your adventure.

what lucky dogs.. you are so well behaved on a boat... if that was Bell - she'd be all over that boat - almost falling off with excitement. Bell isn't too used to boats yet.. soon enough - River season coming up!!

The OP Pack said...

Wow, that is just awesome - did you get to jump in the water too? Do you need to wear one of those seasick pawbands?

Hrmph. And all we got to do is hike in the rain. But the boat does not look kinda like our S-RV, only on water. Cool.

Mango said...

You could live on that boat and be a pirate like Maverick! Lots of nice spaces for your fluffy self.

Slobbers,
Mango

As always, I'm so jealous of your exotic Florida lifestyle! Have you ever tried to swim in the ocean, Kira?

What a cool vacation! I haven't been on a boat like that, but I sure hope there is still a king sized bed for you to sleep on. :-)
