It hasn't been a good few weeks in my house. My husband's grandmother passed away recently. She was almost 90 so she had a nice long life. She lived long enough to meet her great grand-children. She died surrounded by her family who loved her. So really, I don't think you could ask for more. After the funeral things went back to normal, or as normal as can be. Work got really busy. I was really looking forward to our vacation this week. Friday before the 4th of July I was at work. I started feeling dizzy and nauseous. After I got home I got sick, to put it nicely, for hours. I just couldn't stop. My face turned purplish red, and was completely swollen. I broke out in spots and my throat closed up. Travis finally said enough was enough and dragged me to the ER. Turns out I either had a severe allergic reaction or food poisoning. I didn't eat anything different that day so I'm not sure what to believe. It's now almost a week later and I'm still not feeling great. Blah. But I'm on vacation so enough of that.
We obviously couldn't do much since I'm still not feeling 100%. We were looking to find a beach where dogs were allowed so Maddy could enjoy our vacation too. I found this great website that has pet friendly travel arrangements. Today we went to a beach called Fishermans Cove Conservation Area Overview in Manasquan New Jersey.
The beach is only an hour away from our house and it was easy to get to. The beach isn't a great people beach but the dogs loooooooooved it. They could run around off the leash and play with other dogs. We never brought Maddy to the beach before so we weren't quite sure how she would react. She LOVED it. We kept her on the leash for about 10 minutes...mainly so I could snap some photos. :)
Have a great night!
