Jasper & Cash's Excellent Vacation

We all had a great time on the North Fork of Long Island. As many of you know, In Massachusetts we had 28 days of rain in the month of June. I understand that it was the same way in Long Island. And on the ferry over we thought that we were bringing rain with us...but as we approached the shore of LI the sun came out and pretty much stayed out except for two very dramatic thunder and lightning storms. The boys were a little fearful on the ferry over, Cash more so than Jasper (he wouldn't even take a treat) but no injuries this year (Jas sprained his leg last year on the ferry) and both recovered quickly. They were better on the way back as it was sunny and we sat on the top deck.

We made ourselves at home right away by setting up 4 xpens to create a fenced in area so we could just open the doors...I highly recommend this as it was great to be able to just open the doors to the bay.

The first evening we came home from dinner and were greeted with a swarm of earwigs in the house...ewwwwww.

Luckily they were only downstairs so the boys made themselves comfortable on the very cushy down quilt that fell to the floor. At home they never sleep together (Cash in his bed, Jas in his open door crate,) but in LI this is where they slept every night.

The women we rented from was shocked and amazed at our infestation and called an exterminator...this is the carnage.

She also offered to reimburse us for all nights with bugs or let us come for a long weekend for free..which I think we will take her up on. But after two nights of the bugs coming up to die there were no more bugs.

Our friends Joined us for the last five nights (luckily they did not have to deal with bugs) and we all relaxed and enjoyed the bucolic beauty of the area.... farm stands, wineries and wonderful sea air.

the boys came with us to some wineries and just hung out while we did some ummm "tasting."

One of the wineries had a winery dog named Panda who the boys met. Check out this book at winedogs.com

And of course back at home base we had to let the boys experience drinking (water of course) from a wine glass

Every early evening a family of Swans came to visit and honk for handouts of bread.

I don't think these babies are ugly ducklings.

I have to say it was a great way to start the summer (please let it really be here) We had some bugs... but we get a free weekend because of it (and DH was the one who dealt with them) And the boys had a ball. I think this picture of Jas sums up the relaxation we all felt and desperately needed.

So glad you had a great time (and great weather) Missy. The pictures are wonderful. I love the last one of Jasper and the one of Cash looking out the door.
