Our first trip to the beach took place a few brief weeks ago. Thanks to a very kind friend (Hello Lois!) Gram Mojo, Dory and I managed to slip away for a few days to the grand little island of Hilton Head in the fine state of South Carolina. For the first time Dory saw the ocean, felt the salty breeze in her face, wore sunscreen, played in the water, saw an alligator, swam in an outdoors pool and crawled across real, honest-to-goodness sand.
And somehow, for most of that, we managed to keep a hat on her.
It was a great trip.
