A long day...

Mom told me we were going on the boat, but what she did not say is that there would be a
4 hour truck ride(!), pulling the boat first. I was so bored!
By the time we arrived, we had like a 10 minute boat ride then that was it! We were at the marina, without much of a boat ride at all!
I was amazed! That was way too short! Mom said they were hot and tired, so I made her take me for a walkie.
We walked down the docks and along the waterfront . Mom says we were in Punta Gorda for those doggies or there Moms who care about that. We saw a pretty river (The Peace River) that we were on, that leads to the Gulf of Mexico. It was hot though, so I decided after my walkie, that I would go take a nap in the air conditioning while Mom and Dad had a dock party with friends. I came out after the party and had some snacks that were left of the dock, but Mom took away the chicken bones I managed to snag, she stuck her hand down my throat to take it away, I was not to happy about that!
We had a beaWootiful sunset!
Day one is over, wonder what we will do tomorrow.?...

Lovely sunset. Sounds like a long ride for a short trip, huh? But always good to be with your family regardless of the destination.

Hi Kira
After my expreiences at the weekend, I totally sympathise about the long truck ride!
I think you played the party thing very sensibly. As one gets older, the attraction of a cool nap often outweighs the attraction of a party....
Cheers, H.

Wonderful, fabulous sunset.

Our Mom says she is glad your Mom got the chicken bones away from you, but we know it was probably yucky to have her hand down your throat.

Argh, the famous throat search for contraband. We really, really hate that.

By the way, when are you going to have a pretty sunset to show us? That one was ok.

Ok, so it was spectacular.

You are on my side of the world now. I live just up the road a bit, maybe 1.5 to 2 hours. I hope you have lots of fun, get lots of nummies and try not to outshine the boo-tee-full sunsets!

We can't believe what a great sunset shot you got!!!! We are sure it made the four hour drive well worth it.
We are not keen on a long drive either but you certainly ended up in a lovely place - Peace River sounds perfect!
Glad you had a nice walk - great pics.

Too bad about the chicken bones, but if they were cooked, then you know that was the right thing to do.

What an unbelievably incredible sunset!!!

Our Momma has been to Punta Gorda (signing lots of insurance checks after the hurricanes a few years ago).

very pretty sunset - we don't get them like that up here.

Well, I still think that any boat time is good boat time, but it seems sort of like a trick that you had to do such a long car ride for such a small boat ride. I like car rides too though, so maybe it's not all that bad.
