Weekly Video/Photo

If you follow my blog regularly please skip down to the last paragraph…

I have decided to return to the “normal” Weekly Video/Photo section of my blog.  As you likely know we lost Shadow about two months ago and I have been focusing this section on Shadow.  However, I have peace knowing I will continue to highlight favorite photographs including Shadow and Buster.  The plan will still be to still display a video or photo, usually highlighting an Adventure, while I might also sneak in some that are humorous, adorable, or just other fun dog moments.

If you have followed my blog from the beginning you will know that I adopted Shadow as a puppy, and about a year later adopted Buster as a puppy.  We had many wonderful years together before experiencing the devastating loss of Buster at just seven.  It took a long time for our hearts to heal, but almost a year later we welcomed little Wilma into our world.  We were recently devastated to loose Shadow on April 3, 2020.  It is so painful to know Shadow and Buster are both gone, but they will be in our hearts forever!

Today’s photograph is one I took last week of Wilma in Provincetown, Massachusetts, part of Cape Cod. I was looking forward to posing Wilma on this bench, and was quite thrilled to remember the location. It is so colorful, and the perfect summary of the coast. A good memory of our wonderful day on the ocean!

Throwback Adventure – Provincetown – Massachusetts

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday. These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing. Many of these Throwback Adventures will include our Buster, who was known for his crazy tail, his happy howl, and his zest for life. We miss him dearly…he is forever in our hearts!

In April 2015 and in April 2017 we Adventured to Provincetown, Massachusetts. Provincetown is located on the very tip of northern Cape Cod. It is the historic landing of the Mayflower, and has a monument called the Pilgrim Monument to memorialize this important event. Provincetown is well known for its beaches, art galleries, shops, and restaurants.

We had two beach-filled trips to Provincetown, Massachusetts. On our first Adventure we traveled with Shadow, Buster, my Mom and I for I believe just a couple hours. On this journey we drove through the town, stopped for some shopping, and checked out some memorable spots including: the Pilgrim Monument, the beaches, and my favorite landmark, the buoy bench. I remember being awed at the sand dunes, and unique landscape, and disappointed that we did not have more time.

On our second trip Shadow, My Mom, and I spent a long weekend in Provincetown. I booked the perfect apartment right on the beach. We walked the beach every morning, often playing ball.  Shadow was even able to join us indoors at the main building for breakfast!  We spent time in the shops with Shadow by our side, and of course he was spoiled with many treats, including a lobster shaped treat (see picture below). We delighted in visiting various beaches and even made a stop at the local dog park. It was so nice for Shadow to have a vacation at his favorite spot – the beach.

Little did we know Wilma was born just several weeks before this second trip. We look forward to returning in the future with this little lady. I really appreciated Provincetown being so dog-friendly. You can see a mixture of photographs from our two vacations below, as well as two videos of Shadow on the beach. If you have not been to Provincetown it is definitely worth a visit (Rating: Throwback Adventures will not always be rated).
