This weekend was Bean's weekend, we planned our trips around things he could do. On Saturday it was cool and cloudy, perfect day to go to Fort Wetherill and avoid the crowds. Newport is hosting the annual Folk art festival and I was hoping to hear it from the hill, but it was hard to hear much and the wind didn't help. It was nice to get out though and the air was refreshing and there were a lot of large sailboats, enjoying the breezes.
With the weather, we had the beach to ourselves. Of course Bean was thrilled with that, he could play off leash.
This gray catbird, wanted nothing to do with us, so he went the other way.
On the way home, we stopped to watch the Osprey's flying about the cove.
And the Lotus flowers were in bloom in our town, so I had to stop to enjoy those.
On Sunday we took him to his Aunt Natalie's house. She has beach access on her road, and it is a great place for all of us to go swimming. Bean can swim, but he avoids it, at all costs.
He is getting braver with the higher water and waves. And of course he loves to show off. His water walking skills......
And his high jump, acrobatics.
