This last weekend we went to visit some friends in Virginia Beach. They live in an RV full-time across the street from the beach, and Olive loves to go and visit her (dog) buddy, Jackson. We had rehab first thing on Friday morning where Olive got a chance to trot/run in the hydrotherapy tank, and do some exercises. She slept great in the car! We stopped for lunch in Richmond, and it was a beautiful day, so we were all able to sit outside and enjoy our meal and the sunshine.
Saturday morning Nick got up to do his long run, and the rest of got up shortly after to catch the sunrise at the beach. I was really hoping to see dolphins, but no such luck. However, the sunrise was stunning, and it was so peaceful to be there. Olive loves the beach, and she loved being able to play in the sand, and smell all of the things!
Saturday afternoon we all loaded up into the car (4 humans + 2 dogs) and went to Reaver Beach Brewing Co. I’m not really a huge beer person, or any alcohol really, but they had some really tasty sours on tap, and had just released a new one that day as well. So we all grabbed a drink, got the pups situated, and played some of our favorite card games. Olive got ALL the pets, and had an awesome time!
Needless to say, Saturday night the pups were worn out, and so it was a fun time chatting, laughing, and watching the Food Network. Sunday morning was another sunrise walk (still no dolphins, wahhhh!), and a lazy morning before heading home. Traffic was NOT great, and it took a lot longer to get home than we thought it would, but we made it! Olive was OUT shortly after stopped for coffee and were on our way.
We all had such a fun weekend! It was so great to see our friends, eat some great vegan food, laugh, and see Olive play at the beach again. She’s definitely acting like her “old” self again these days, and it’s so fun to see! Can’t wait for the weather to warm up just a smidge so we can get outside a little more. Here’s to all of the adventures to come!
