I â€“ like Darren Rabago â€“ will have to cop to having a near and dear place in my heart for my long tenure in attending Operation Shore Patrol over many years.

For the past few years Operation Shore Patrol has been held at the Tidelands Campground in Copalis Beach WA.

Itâ€™s Sunday evening post OSP â€“ and Lola â€“ tuckered out from her atypical weekend away from home â€“ has put herself to bed (or actually under the bed) 2 hours early.

Being forced to spend time on the hard ground or on a lead, and not lounging on the couch as might have been the case at home all weekend â€“ Iâ€™m sure theyâ€™d think of reporting us to the ASPCA â€“ if only they had the opposable thumbs to manage it. I think mainly they are glad just to be home again. We tell them, â€śRemember â€“ you always beg to come along. Well this time â€“ we brought you!â€ť Continue reading “Operation Shore Patrol Sep 2017”
