T Stands for Hanging Out at the Beach

 Happy T Day ladies. Summer is in full swing so today's T Day post is all about enjoying it.
The last couple of Sundays we have gone out in our boat and anchored by the beach, had a little picnic lunch, and then enjoyed several hours of relaxing in the sun.
Not the best of my photos. I have a bunch of them on my camera, which still need to be downloaded onto the computer. I promise one of these days I will do that and then I can show them to you.
In the meantime, phone photos will have to do.
 Lunch consisted of one of these cold beers from the Shed Brewery in Vermont and then a sandwich.
 This is one we bought a week ago, and yesterday we had similar ones that we put together ourselves on the boat. It really depends if I managed to get to the grocery store whether we make the sandwiches  or whether we stop on our way to the beach and buy one.
 Afterwards we just put up our feet and relax.

Unless you are our dog Maddie who comes along every now and again. She finds the coming and goings of beach folk and fishing people very interesting. especially if there are dogs involved. This beach  is on the edge of a state park and is a place only  boaters anchor at so you do see dogs on the beach and in boats. 
And of course if a duck or sea gull decides to land near the boat that is an even more exciting treat for her. So far she's been good and not jumped off the boat to swim after them, but I think if she did the duck and sea gull have the advantage of flying off before she'd get to them.

Pete prefers to nap with my husband (you cans see his knees) rather than watch the world go by.
 When they wake up they need to have a little male post-nap bonding time. :)

Stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog to join in the T gang fun or to see what other people have been up to. Its always a good visit! And today is a real party as we are all celebrating 4 years of fun!
And to those of you who stop by my blog, thanks for visiting.
And of course, Happy T day.

Looks like you had a beautiful day. Your sandwich looks amazing. I think I'm more like Pete and your hubby. The beach is a good place to take a nap. Enjoy your day.

What fun you must have on the boat. Good food, good times, good talk, relaxing, what more could you (and the dogs) ask for.

I've never heard of that ale before. Although I'm not an ale drinker, this is a lovely bottle. Thanks for sharing this beautiful trip on the water in your boat with us, as well as your ale and sandwiches, for T this almost Tuesday.

I forgot to mention how GOOD your husband looks. Apparently the surgery did wonders for him.

It must be so relaxing to spend time on your boat and I'm sure the sea breeze was cooling too 😀. It looks like you had beautiful sunny weather - perfect! That sandwich looks so good and what could be better than a bottle of beer, well I would say that ... lol 😉. Cheers and wishing you happiness this T Day! J 😊

Looks like another great day on the lake!!! We really need to get a life and do things like this once in a while at least. It's 16 years since we've taken a real get away vacation I think we are due. I make even be convinced to leave the yarn at home....NOT GOING TO HAPPEN WHY TRY TO FOOL MYSELF :)

We aren't boaters, but the state park we spent our vacation in caters to boaters of all kinds from one-person paddlers to larger craft. Those big boats look like such fun out there on the water, but we enjoyed the water from the lake-side trails ;)
