As my family and I ascended into Seabrook, my dad rolled down the windows and I smelled the salty ocean air I love so much. I stuck my head out the window allowing my ears to flap in the wind. I panted with excitement and closed my eyes; we’re here.
My name is Chief, I’m a black lab and the beach is my favorite destination. Normally when we visit the beach, I have to be crated when my family goes into town, but not here. Not at Seabrook, because at Seabrook I was welcome pretty much everywhere!
When we arrived at Seabrook I was given my own special goodie bag. Inside was my own bedding, a special Seabrook nametag and there were treats in my bag. I love treats! The goodie-bag made me feel extra special. Sometimes when we stay at the beach, even if dogs are allowed, I don’t always feel welcome.
During our stay we explored the whole town. Of course the dog park was my favorite, but some other highlights were the Gnome Trail, Growler’s Alley and the evening concert.
When we first arrived, my family took me for a long walk. Around each turn was a unique house with a picturesque backdrop. As we walked towards the beach we found a little forest with tiny little houses made out of seashells, moss and sticks. The human kids loved the magic of the Gnome Trail.
After working up a thirst we stopped at Growler’s Alley. My mom and dad thought one of them would have to take me back to the house and dog-sit me. To our surprise, I was able to stay with family and nobody had to miss out on the fun. Growler’s Alley even served special beer, just for pups like me!
The evening concert was the prefect end to a special day. My brother went to the candy shop and got ice cream, my dad sipped his beer and we all danced. It was so nice to be able to be with my family during these fun moments that I sometimes miss out on because I am not allowed.
I was sad when we left Seabrook, but my ears perked up when I heard mom tell dad we would be back again soon.
