SkyWatch Friday and Petey's Parcel!

Some of this week's skies....we've had some beauties!

To play along and see other skies from around the globe visit SkyWatch Friday.


Some people were curious about the Green Lagoon on yesterday's True Colours post. The intense colour is caused by micro-organisms in the water. Here are a couple of interesting links if you want to find out more....the second has some very cool pictures.



And Mum found the holiday snap of their trip there....she is behind the camera, as usual hehe!

L-R is our Dad, Liam, Summer, Rebecca and our Nanny & Granda. Her present subjects are far better looking we think!

In answer to other questions about yesterday's post.....sea lettuce does not taste of lettuce, it tastes of seaweed....the silver bowl is the cat's water bowl, that's his feeding mat with the green paws on it....our bowls are usually empty anyway....and yes, picnics were ravaged and BBQs gatecrashed!


Oooh, what's this?

Smells sort of....appley....

Rosie's sweetie sent her a parcel a while ago and we were beginning to think the pirates had got it! Thankfully it arrived this morning and is filled with lovely goodies.....Petey and his Mom really are too kind....

....wow, look at all these wonderful gifts!

There are all sorts of lovely treats here....bandanas, squeaky tennis balls (Petey knows Rosie's favourite stuff!)....a Cuz, a lovely card addressed to the most beautiful Beagle in the UK....a cool hook to hang our leads from, even some treats for our Mum!

Snoop snooped out the eatables.....well, breath mints and boy does he need them!

Petey even put in some of his favourite toys.....Gabbi made off with the mobile phone to try and call Jake....

While Rosie made a beeline for the Jimmy Chew....

....she took it and Petey's blue ball off to bed with her.

Here she is modelling one of the bandanas....

.....a beautiful plaid collar....

....Petey also sent her one of his hoodys....mmmm, smells great!

I wish my Petey could have fitted in the box....

Thank you Petey for all the gorgeous gifts.....you're the BEST!

Alfie slept through all the box opening excitement but soon appeared to try and steal the toys from Rosie.....of course he was acting the goat but stopped as soon as Mum clicked "record"....typical thug knows how CCTV works and behaved himself when the camera was on him!

Oops, we almost fogot about these....what are they we hear you ask....?

They are an old pair of Petey's booties to protect his feet from the salt!

What an awesome parcel of presents! Petey and his Mom are definitely the best. Rosie's pic with the hoodie on is just priceless...How do they know when the video is on? Alice seems to know too! Alice is showing some elegant lounge positions today, Rosie; you might impress Petey with them! Have a happy day!

Amazing photos! That green lagoon is so neat. My hoomans lived in Iceland for a long time and they told me that they have something like that there, but more aquamarine than green green like yours. Petey sent some really great presents. Rosie looks so cute in that plaid collar.

I also love your new header! Very fitting for you beach loving pups!

I loved looking at your sky pictures - such a beautiful part of the world you live in. And wow, what a lot of great stuff - Petey is the best!

See ya!

Petey said...

Ah Rosie, you look so cute in my hoodie - but you also have the same look on your face as when Mommy pulls the hood up on my head! I'm much better just wearing it down around my neck. We're the perfect size, you and me. So happy my parcel FINALLY arrived. Next time, I'm coming along in it!

Lots of snogs,

Your Petey

And particularly fine sky photos in this post, I feel.
