in Florida, the fall breeze that had been dancing around us for days in NC was absent. summer was still present as we skated across the gulf coast on dad's boat, the pup happily hanging his head over the edge, right at home with his new owner.
donning snorkels, we caught scallops straight from the sands and sea grass, shucked them from the boat deck, then had them for dinner. the ultimate fresh.
we drove home in a quiet car, sporting newly acquired sunburns and smiles. a little part of me missing that big headed lab.
update from dad says "should have named him shadow, he follows me everywhere" and "he met all the neighborhood dogs. he's scared of the little ones." operation find pup a home, a success!
