This is my Black Labrador Retriever, Midnight .. having fun at the beach.

She just loves to play and swim in the water, even if it’s freezing cold! She also loves it when we throw balls or sticks for her to fetch … loves it so much that she’ll stand in the water and literally whine as she waits for us to find something to throw to her. Uhm … even if she’s got a darn stick right at her feet! LOL

I took this photo in March (the 7th to be exact). We always seem to go to the beach more often in the winter than the summer. If we lived in a warm climate that wouldn’t be so weird, but we live in Toronto which is normally fairly cold in the winter. However, every one in a while there’s a nice semi warm day .. often in February and sometimes in March and that’s when the bug to go to the beach gets us.

The day we went happened to be very warm for March. It was 19 Celsius (66 F) … more like April or May temperatures, so of course we had to get outside and enjoy the day. After spending some time at the beach we went and ate a late lunch at an outdoor patio … but in between we found a really strangely decorated house. If you’re curious take a look at the post on Odd Planet to see this very funny and odd house.

Enjoy!

We often take our dog to a special area in the Toronto beaches, called Cherry Beach, where dogs are allowed to roam off leash and play in the water.

Earlier this summer we took Midnight to the beach where she made several dog friends and as you can see from the photo above, had a great time swimming in the lake with her new friends.

I love that I was able to capture her and her pal swimming out into Lake Ontario beneath a fiery sky as the sun set. Lovely. What do you think of this picture?

This is another photo of the sun setting on Toronto over Lake Ontario.

This photo was taken in late August while on a dinner boat on Lake Ontario.

Simply gorgeous.

I took this photo at the end of August while on a dinner boat cruise on Lake Ontario.

Obviously the sun was setting and the scene was lit in the warm glow of the fading rays of the sun.

So beautiful. I love Toronto.

Today, I’ll be flying directly over the CN Tower and Rogers Center as my husband and I head to Las Vegas for a blogging convention! Don’t worry, I’ve sent this site up so that it will automatically publish new posts while we’re away. You won’t even know I’m gone. However, when I come back next week expect to see some photos of Las Vegas. ‘K?
