Day Two at Ruby's Resort (Part 1)

Day Two was the awesome-est day! I got so pooped out after it all, I just dropped on the bed and slept like a log...hehe! Here's how the day went down:

We woke up bright and early to try and see if we could catch the sunrise from the beach...alas, it looked as if it was going to rain! =( But the colors of that morning were still lovely! That's Gramma in the silhouette there...*grins*

Sad that we couldn't view the sun rise, but the tranquil water is very calming on a morning like this..

There was a sort of mist too amidst the cloudy-ness of it all. Cool!

As you can see, I got mesmerized by the splendour of it...

As we headed back for breakfast, Mom took a photo of the vast lands surrounding the resort...this is just a teenie part of it too. o.O"

Breakfast wasn't ready just yet as we found out, so we explored the resort a little, and look at what we came upon - this cool sculpture wood! And look at who's underneath it!

A pretty kitty cat! She's one of Ruby's (the resort owner) many pets...she has rabbits, kitties and a black Labrador called Stout!

Oh look! She rescues turtles too! Aren't they adorable?! It so happens that the resort is along the beach which is a turtle sanctuary too, so when the turtles come to lay their eggs, they would just be walking distance from Ruby's Resort...awesome,isn't it? We didn't get to see any turtles laying eggs this time around though, coz it wasn't the mating season yet =(

Guess what THIS tank contains?

This big terrapin! Eep! The staff regularly takes the turtles and terrapins out to clean their shells, so they apparently DON'T bite, but I feel nervous enough to stay away from these big guys!

See what I mean?? *gulp*

And there were not only one, but TWO big guys...eep!

On the other hand, the turtles were let out too...don't they look ADORABLE! They remind Mom of the turtles in the movie 'Finding Nemo'. *grins*

Breakfast was ready after that and we had breakfast near the beach...look at Kenji trying to score some food with his puppy eyes!

And he DID manage to get some food...yumm!!

There were some other doggies who came for the trip too! Here is Bobo, a Jack Russell Terrier who's such a great swimmer she could rival Michael Phelps I think! *wink* She was my classmate back when I was in Pre-Novice class too!

This is Coco...isn't she a pretty doggie? Mom loves her thick and shiny coat! There were some other doggies too, but for some reason we didn't manage to take photos of the rest of them. =( There were 3 other Min. Schnauzers, a Pug, 2 other Jack Russell Terriers, a Labrador, and a mixed breed doggie. Cool eh? A whole resort of doggies! *wink*

After breakfast, we headed out to the beach yet again...check out this huge log that got washed out on the beach!

I got some water action too...haha! I prefer to stay on the sides more than jump in to the water, but I had loads of fun getting my feet (and beard) wet! Hehe! Photos:

After splashing in water for a while, we got tired so we headed back to dry up and take a break. Kenji immediately curled up in his comfy cushion-bed.

Me, I was content with the wooden floor....

*yawns* A bit sleepy now...will continue later on Part 2!
