Bashful’s Great Fishing Trip

While at Tybee Island with mom/dad several weeks ago, Bashful went on a fishing trip.  You know that is one of dad’s favorite past times – to go fishing.  So, I guess that kind of rubbed off on the little rock.  He was so thrilled and was so full of confidence that he was going to get the ‘big one’ and it wasn’t going to get away… like it does in dad’s stories – snorts.

So, he got his fishing rod out and spent several hours watching his line for any kind of movement.  He has the patience of a boulder – he waited and waited and waited.

And then TUG – the line moved.

Bashful jumped into action and started reeling in the line.  He asked for some help from the regulars at the pier and a kindly gentleman came over to help him reel whatever Moby Dick he had on the line in.  It was touch and go for a while.  The line went out.  The line went in.  It was a monster!

Bashful stood his ground though and continued to pull in whatever was on the other end.  Was it a shark?  Was it Moby Dick himself?  Was it the Loch Ness monster?  Whatever it was, it was the longest twenty minutes of his life!   Then they saw something jump in the water.  OH WOW!

Man the net – man the pier – wipe the little rock’s forehead – the monster came out of the water.

It was touch and go for a while but finally the brought the big killer in – all in its glory.  What a fish!  It was amazing.  And to think dad, Bashful has ‘proof’ of his big catch… where’s your proof? snorts.

And being the good little tyke he is, after the ever so kind fellow fisherman helped out, they kissed it and threw it back in the ocean to his family.

When Bashful was asked why he threw it back, he replied, “It wasn’t big enough.”  aaww – that’s my rock!

At Least Some “Piggies” Got to Meet the Beach

20131027-183436.jpgYep, that’s right.  I said that outloud.  At least mom’s ten piggies got to ‘swim’ in the ocean at Tybee Island.  So much for ‘no pigs’ allowed, huh? snorts.

They arrive on the island on Saturday and the *first* thing mom did was run to the water and stick her piggies in it.  It does look kind of nice if I say so myself.

She took several pictures to share.  This to the right is one of my favorites showing the pier.  See all of those palm trees?  They were put out for a movie they were shooting.  You know Sponge Bob.  All of those palm trees did make the pier look beautiful and inviting.  Each day, workers from Paramount Pictures were out grooming them and fixing them up from the winds off of the ocean.

Hope you enjoy these pics of the beach.  Mom says they make her want to go back again – really soon!  You?  Maybe next time they can bring a little oinker named Bacon!

Farewell From the Beach –

I guess next time mom/dad goes to the beach, I am so putting out an ad in the local Tybee Island newspaper to warn the people that live there – snorts.  They have sent me all kinds of pictures from their trip.  This is the main sign welcoming you to Tybee Island.  Isn’t it cute?  They said they could just live down here forever with no problems.  Uh-oh.  Be forewarned islanders, mom/dad never plan on leaving… even after they pass – snorts.

.

It does sound like they had a great time – lots of bonding time as daddy put it – without the children.  What?!  You sound like you didn’t miss me dad.  What’s up with that?  Mommy took this picture outside her window one day as they were leaving to go do something beachwise.  It’s actually kind of pretty with the palm trees and water in the background.  Mom said they walked out the back door, went down a little path and they were right there on the sandy beach having fun and causing havoc.  Her words not mine – snorts.

Mom said they spent a LOT of time on the beach this year.  I’m glad because she really did need a break from the ordinary and have a good time… even if it was without little ole cute as a button me.

They also took the following pictures on the beach – one of the pier and one from underneath the pier which I thought was kind of unique.  You?

I could just see myself playing under the pier in the water in and out of the shadows digging around in the sand with my little snout.  Mom did say that she would consider taking me next year if they could find a place to stay that would allow me.  I can be on good behavior for a week.  Right?  Don’t laugh!  I’m serious.  There has to be somewhere on the island that will take in my sweet self.

.

Also while mom/dad were exploring the island during their adventure time – snorts, they visited the Tybee Lighthouse.  I do believe that this has to be one of my favorite pictures that mommy has taken.  What do you think?

Well, that’s it for now.  I have to go.  They are coming home today and I gotta lot of cleaning to do in my bedroom.  XOXO – Bacon

That’s Okay – I’ll Pass

Oh my!  I had the worse nightmare last night.  I dreamed that mom/dad took me to the beach with them.  I was so excited that my little tail wouldn’t stop swinging back and forth.  We took the little car Albert and I stayed in the back the entire ride down – this was all good.

We got to the beach and they walked me down this long pier.  It was wonderful.  It was a little cool outside so mom put one of my sweaters on me.  It was also bright and sunny so mommy made me wear my shades.  People were stopping and talking to us.  They just couldn’t believe I was an oinker.  I don’t understand why not.  I’m domesticated and educated.  I know how to behave myself.  They petted me and we got to the end of the pier.  It was beautiful.  The water was glistening from the sun and it was awesome.  I kept begging mommy that I wanted to put my hooves in the water so we walked back down the pier to the sandy beach.

This is where the dream turned drastically.  There were humans on long boards out in the water.  It looked like they were walking on the waves.  Mom said they were surfing.  It was cool and looked like a lot of fun.  One of the guys asked if he could take me out and would I stay on the board.  I begged and begged – snorted and snorted until mom caved.

Shivers…. this is what happened next – screams!

I’m going to rethink watching these scary movies late at night before going to bed.  Shivers.
