Where there's an octopus, there's probably a hungry lingcod

Quite the different ecosystem from the tropical waters of Costa Rica.

It'll be swimming ON the surface for Alma

Monday Mischief 14: Oceanfront Park

As I mentioned yesterday, the Husband and I recently packed up the dogs and headed west to Vancouver Island.

One of many great parts about the vacation was being able to take the dogs to one of the nicest off leash parks – with a couple kilometres of beach in Victoria, BC.

To be honest, there was a lot of fun to be had, but not a lot of mischief! One of the impressive things about the park was how clean it was and how well behaved all the dogs seemed to be each time we went.  Moses and Alma had a blast!

No hesitation from Alma.

For Alma, it was her first visit to the ocean (Moses’ second).
