When Grumpy & Granny come down island to visit Tadpole, they like to plan mini-outings for us. We all love getting Tadpole out and doing new, fun things. On this particular occasion, Granny packed a picnic lunch and we headed to the Esquimalt Lagoon for some fun in the sand and sun. Tadpole hadn’t been to the beach in over a year (the last time was in Mexico), and while at first he wasn’t sure about the sand in his toes, it didn’t take long for him to realize the potential of running amok. He got soaked in the Ocean, and loved every minute of it! Sand – good. “Wadur” – good. Sand + Wadur = Mud – GREAT!
