This past weekend Nancy, Oshie and I went to the beach for an afternoon of fun with friends. In reality the trip was an opportunity for Oshie and his new best dog friend Lucy (a lab/ridgeback mix) to wear themselves out. A few weeks back they met for the first time and although the first meeting was a little tense they quickly became best friends. I equate this to their personalities being very similar. Lucy belongs to our friends Steve and Sarah so getting the dogs together is also a great way to spend some time with them and their two little boys.

The trip to the beach was also a great chance for me to use my new Tamron lens. I have wanted to buy a telephoto lens for a while now and I finally pulled the trigger and bought the Tamron 70-300 4-5.6 SP DI VC USD lens. As much as I would like to have a faster lens with a fixed aperture this one has been great so far especially for the money. I bought it used from KEH Camera and I recommend anyone looking for used gear check them out.

On to the pictures of Lucy and Oshie at the beach!

Lucy! She wasn’t excited about going in the water at first but eventually she made Oshie look like a wuss as he waited for her to get the ball and avoided the big waves.

They couldn’t figure out how to pick up the Frisbee so decided to wrestle instead.

Trotting along the beach likely staring at some random people. He is such a people watcher.
