Computer Malfunctions can be Good

Today at my work my computer went tits up and the IT guy who came to look at it actually took it away so that he could work on it, and there's not much I can do without a computer - so I took a couple hours vacation and me and the big dogs went to the beach.We went to my favourite part of Crystal Crescent where no one else ever goes - and we had a pretty good time, I'd say.
It's the first time I've ever gone out, just about, without Buttercup - but there's no way she could've handled the terrain with her gimpy leg, and I couldn't take Jack because he would've just stopped at the entrance and said - "NO, there's no way I'm doing ANY of THIS!"
Some of my favourite things in the whole world are rocks, and dappled sunlight on water - and I got both of those today, so I had a pretty good afternoon - along with a lot of wind. It was super.
And I also got to use my telephoto lens which I bought for my fabulous Canon EOS D40 and took this picture of a light house that is super far away - but you can almost make it out in this photo. I love my camera.
Isn't Charlie beautiful?I wonder if maybe I'm getting close to taking a 1,000 pictures of him - and they still all look beautiful to me.
This is a long shot of the beach we walk on, which is just part of our walk - I think it could be Hawaii, not Nova Scotia it's so blue/green - the water really does look like this.
Find the rottweiller in this photo.
Some nice close-ups of Daisy and Charlie being happy being out.

They even got in some wrestling on the beach.

Here's a shot that could be used as a tourism photo - if you want to get away and be by yourself - Nova Scotia's the place to go. 3pm on a Thursday afternoon you can have THIS all to yourself and it's only 15 minutes outside the biggest city in Nova Scotia. I think that's pretty amazing. Complete perfection.

    Beautiful spot and great pictures. I got a chuckle out of the "heart shaped" ear tips on Daisy as she was running!
