Adventure Awaits

Before we moved (and before Rye), I wrote about how many unique things we saw in our neighborhood on a regular basis. In our new neighborhood, we still get to see plenty of interesting things.

This weekend, the replica ships of the Niña and the Pinta were docked in our neighborhood. The ships are traveling museums that are used to educate people about the caravel ships that were used during Christopher Columbus' time.

Since Rye had a playdate scheduled on Friday evening, I took Barley down to see them by herself that morning. As always, my good girl was excited for the chance to pose with something new.


She almost sat on this guy!


I toured the boats when I was younger (although according to the ships' website, the Pinta wasn't built until 2005, so maybe I only saw the Niña?), but it was fun to see them up close. 

I didn't want to deprive my sweet potato Rye of the chance to see the ships, so once we'd recovered from our playdate, we took a stroll down to see the ships again.




Rye wasn't quite as impressed with the idea of a sea-faring life as Barley was, but that might have something to do with all of the food smells on the ground after a wine festival in the harbor over the weekend. That little hound nose will choose smells over cool sights any day.

We're excited to see what other adventures will find us before summer vacation is over!

  1. That's pretty cool that they were so close to where you are at.

    1. It was cool! It's always fun to find something new on our walks. We like going down and watching the boats go under the lift bridge, but we've never gotten to see ones like this!

  2. What fun to see those! You got some great photos. Rye just likes to add a little variety to the standard posed shots. :)

    1. Barley has to be reminded to use her nose, so having a dog whose nose NEVER stops is definitely a new experience for me :)
