Mitch is such a good sport and maybe even a bit of a saint. He definitely has the patience of Job, he has to, he puts up with me. We are on vacation this week, which normally this is our pheasant hunting week, but this year we are a two and a half day drive to Nebraska so we decided to skip that this year and do some exploring here in Washington. Every day this week we have tried to make the two and a half hour drive to the coast so that I could take pictures of the Pacific Ocean and let the dogs run around in the surf. Today was the day we finally were able to go and guess what, today was the day that the big storm hit the coast moving inland with heavy rain and high winds. Yep perfect planning, that’s what I do. Mitch was still game so off we went.
We got to Ocean City about noon, and as you can see by the photos, it was brutal. Mitch deserves the saint of the week award. Maybe tomorrow I can get him to take me to Mount Rainier and play in the snow.

THE COASTEST WITH THE MOSTEST—MEN??? WILD GRASS!!!!
You have no idea!
WELL…I only see one…man!
Yes he was the only other person – man or woman – out there besides me. Poor man he has to go along just to be able to drive me to the emergency room should the need arise.
For that….I’ll say he’s a GOOD MAN!!!!
Yes he is and patient – anyone needs that to be around me.
The perfect accessory for the coast may well be a pipe.
I agree! Poor man looked so miserable didn’t he?
Men and their smoking…
Yes and it seems that no matter whether I am in front of him or behind him the smoke always blows right at me.
It is an absolutely amazing phenomenon!
I’m just lucky that way
I’m playing catch up 🙂 Did he manage to keep the pipe lit in that wind? Wow! I like the action shot of the dogs quite a lot.
Thank you he has plenty of experience smoking it in adverse conditions
