Jesse got to visit his first beach and wasn't too sure about all the water. He really enjoyed running along the beach and playing with other dogs but he wouldn't go near the surf. One of the great walks we took was right along a jetty that had been build in 1914. There is a river on one side and a tidal marsh on the other.
Jesse came up to this tidal stream and refused to cross with me. I just kept walking and eventually he went for it and splashed across with 3 big jumps. When he got to the other side he was very proud on himself and went for a long run to dry off.
The posts above are actually trees that were planted along the jetty almost one hundred years ago. From the size of the trunks I would guess that they made it for 20 years or so. Each of them is still rooted but the tops were all snapped off at about the same height. Must have been quite a storm!
