Beach Bum Bears!

Hullo!! Jerry, Ben and I have discovered something strange...

A picnic lunch AND a backpack! With no advance warning that we are included... we decided to take a page out of Little Fox's book.

Ben led the way... "I'm going in!" Jerry and I then followed... After much tossing and moving...

We knew we had made the right decision! We found ourselves on the beach!

 We understood the tossing too... that was the boat we used to come over to the little island.

 Of course... let three little bears loose on the beach or in the woods and... you're likely going to have a game of hide-and-seek!

Heh-heh... this big old cedar is a great little bear hiding spot!

"Psst... Sandy... which way is Ben coming?"

"I heard that!" said Ben, as we played ring-a-round the tree for a while!

But the beach is why we are really here...

 On this spot, we found some rocks with beary mysterious holes in them. Mama turned her back on us for 2 seconds and...

We were gone!! (Well, not really... can you see my sandals?)

Heh-heh... these are perfect caves for little bears... Ooooh.... we could call ourselves the Cave Bears!

Naturally, there was a lunch stop. It looks like a beary healthy lunch...

We also found these weird indentations in the rock...

Hmmm... my sandals don't fit into them...

"Nor do my sneakers", said Jerry.

"But my bare bear paws fit perfectly!!! You know what that means. We think we've discovered a fossilized migration track for prehistoric Little Cave Bears! This might even have been a former colony. Or... it could have been a Cave Bear dance floor too."

 Jerry led us to some sand dollars on the tidal flats...

There were lots of them!!

We even saw some starfish...

"Dear Papa... we think we should move to the beach!"

"Heh-heh, Sandy is being silly... wading through hip-deep seaweed."

What a great day... we saw ferries sale by...

And on the other side of the island...

 We saw seaplanes landing...

There was even a deer!

But... all good things must come to an end. sigh...

Soon Jerry and Ben have to go home... like, very soon. I think they had a good time though... "Oh yes!!!" squealed Ben. "Absolutely!" giggled Jerry. "And we have lots and lots of ideas to take home to Papa!"

  1. Maybe it's like the Walk of Fame in Hollywood, where all the stars put their handprints/pawprints?...

  2. What a great outing! That is a lot of sand dollars! It's hard to find sand dollars that aren't broken!

  3. Papa: what a fantastic trip! Jerry and Ben don't get to see the ocean very often, just great big lakes, so they must have been very excited!
