Road Trip with Ammo – Dog Beach in Isle of Palms, SC

04 Dec Posted by in Adventure | 6 comments

As you know last week I left for a fun Thanksgiving road trip with my family. With over 1500 miles of driving this would be one of my longest road trips to date!

Not to worry though, because Trooper and I are excellent travelers and we can nap in the car for hours and hours.

Trooper even snores!

Despite our excellent traveling skills, we did make a few pitstops for dinner and a couple bathroom breaks.

And then finally after about 14 hours of driving from Pennsylvania to South Carolina we reached our destination. When we awoke the next day I wasted no time in hitting up the beach on Isle of Palms. This time of year the beaches are open all day long to dogs.

Trooper and I had a lot of energy to expel so we ran and ran to our hearts content.

I even made friends with a few dachshund mixes that were staying right next door to my beach house!

Even though we were a bit farther south, it was still chilly enough in the morning that I preferred the extra warmth of my coats.

The cool weather didn’t stop me from venturing into the cold water though!

One of my favorite things to do on the beach is to “rescue” crabs from the ocean. I drag them ashore from the sea and then I’m off in search of my next crab that needs saving.

My new favorite thing on the beach though…..bird watching!

Well ok, maybe more like bird chasing.

By the end of our trip I was becoming such a beach loving dog that I’ve decided when I’m rich and famous I’ll be purchasing a vacation house right on the beach.

    What camera do you use to get such great action shots of the pups?

    • Ammo12-05-13

      My mom uses a Canon Rebel and for a lot of the shots it has on 50 mm lens. Oh and some of the shots are done with the iPhone – and most of the beach running photos are shot with a telephoto lens. the 50mm does not do well with action shots.
