Get Me Out Of Here


Yesterday afternoon I took Sophie to the boardwalk
 since she hadn't had a good walk for a few days
due to the storm.


We left Ron home as he is recouperating from a nasty cold.
  

Sophie was very happy to be out somewhere, anywhere.


She ran up these steps to get a better look of the beach.....no sand! Only rocks.


Now what?! 


Well, we went back down to the boardwalk and proceeded along as best we could
dodging the ice and snow banks along the path.
It was so good to get out! 
Sophie wasn't the only one
cooped up for three days!!

  1. I have seen the huge dollop of snow that came your way, no wonder you had cabin fever after a few days. Sophie,look after Ron, he needs lots of your TLC right now. Greetings to all, Jean

    1. A dollop of snow.....I will use that one around here and see what reaction I get!! A very gentle approach is always good.
      Ron is getting a lot of TLC....he so deserves all the TLC he can get. Thanks Jean and have a wonderful Wednesday.

  2. I have no real excuse for not venturing out... no big snow storms or extreme cold. It's just damp and yucky out there! Love the photos of Sophie and I do hope Ron feels better soon. xo

      Ron is coming round. This bug (a cold) is a stickler!! First one he has had in years!!

  3. It's so cute the way she carries that ball around. Being stuck in the house for days on end can drive you crazy! It really is nice to get outside. Hope Ron is feeling better soon! I'm sure you and Sophie are taking good care of him.

    1. Sophie was getting pretty antsy, as was I! Believe it or not Martha, she can walk without Mr. Orangie and we get her to do that regularly. Dogs and addictions are not good!! lol

  4. I see Mr. Orangie enjoyed the walk too.

  6. Wonderful photographs, Jim. The light sky and railing "frame" brought out Sophie's adorable features beautifully! Wish Ron well for us (although I'm about to drop by his blog and do that myself :) Takes more of an effort to get out on those snowy days but it's sure worth it when you do. I grew up (as much as possible) in Quebec so know whereof I speak :)

  7. Thanks Carol! Sophie and I had good, if somewhat a short, trek yesterday.
    Yes growing up in Quebec would qualify you an experienced 'winter person'!

    1. Fun?! I guess so. I really don't mind the stuff as long as I don't have to shovel it, Donna. I agree, spring can come early if it wishes to!!

    1. Good question John! Very well actually. It can be a good distraction for her when we really want her to listen to us we will use it...yes it's a bribe!!

  16. Sophie has such an expressive face. Her bright ball is a pretty counterpoint to the other subtle colors of the day. I hope Ron feels better soon.

    1. Hi Barb. Thanks for dropping by. Sophie really does show what she feels most of the time. Ron is on the mend.

  17. I love the pictures of Sophie with Mr. Orange, Jim ~ especially the last one. I have a thing for Mr. Orange! Sophie too! I'm sorry Ron has a cold. Those things are miserable and they last and last. Did the storm wash away the beach sand? I'm glad that you got a chance to shake off some cabin fever! Take care!
