Reporting for Duty

To the left: Duke, aka Doomsday, aka Bad to the Bone, enjoys a ride on Oak Island, NC.

Friday was the day I had fanaticized over all winter. I got up early, fed the horses, hooked the Jeep to the Pickup and headed down to my waiting wife and RV in Southport. I was there by 10 AM.

I had planned a day on the water based on an early week forecast but their was small craft warnings out so I decided on Plan B. Heck, it was very rough with seas 10 to 14 feet.

Plan B was to take the top off the Jeep and go cruising, ah I mean Shore Patrol with the dogs.

Each dog got their turn and finally we piled all four in the Jeep along with Gigi in the back and took a ride around Southport. It was all very fun.

Today I hope to get in the water. There have been Atlantic White Whale sightings off the coast. I would love to see on of those babies but I’m afraid they are too far out for my vessel.

Besides, I plan to stay inshore in the waterways.

Cute pics of Duke and Timmy!

Glad you're having fun! It is finally calm enough for us to go boating, but alas, I have to work.

We will definitely be taking time off when y'all are down here, though!

Oh good. I thought you guys might be sick of us.
