Tucker seemed pretty happy to be there.
A few minutes later, when we resumed walking and went by it, I realized the large lump on the beach was indeed an actual elephant seal!
There was still plenty to enjoy, as the ocean's scents and stories carried on the wind.
I say Tucker is a beach dog as he enjoys it, but really what he loves is the scents and sounds of the ocean more than the beach itself. He needn’t run through the waves as other dogs do, or race headlong across the sandy beach. But to lie and listen to the sounds of the sea is pure bliss. I couldn’t agree more.
