On Sunday, we decided we had had enough seminars and crowds of people so the three of us headed for the beach. Did I say three? Yes, our trusty friend and travelling companion Tanzy went with us.
Let me introduce you to Miss Tanzy. (Odd name for a dog. I think Lou got it out of a seed catalog. I have seen a vocalist listed by the same name.) Tanzy is a Beaglere. That is a cross between a beagle and a King Charles cavalier spaniel. She is a very lovely girl and travels well. When inside she thinks she is a lap dog and a lover. Outside is a different story as she becomes a hunter. Her nose is on the ground most of the time. Her favorite prey seems to be anoles (geckos to some).
On to the beach, we discovered that the public beaches in Daytona did not allow dogs so we headed for Ponce Inlet Park where canines are more than welcome. They receive a biscuit on entry to the park. (Cost $5 for the people in the car.) It was a great place to spend 3 hours. A nice view of the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse.
While Tanzy hunted in the rocks of the jetty, I watched the surf boarders. They had a nice surf if they waited for the right wave. The slope of the bottom caused the waves to curl high before breaking. There were many shore birds to observe. The yellow footed Snowy Egrets with their black bills.
