I took Boomer to the ocean for the first time last year and he freaked out. Most likely because he had never seen a body of water that big and then add in the huge waves to go along with it, you can probably see why he was scared.
While in Newport Oregon we stopped at the Yaquina Bay State Recreation Site and I took Boomer to the ocean again. The ocean was old hat by this point and Boomer was no longer afraid. He chased the waves and tore through the sand like a dragster car taking off for it’s 10 seconds of fame. I don’t really blame Boomer; he had been stuck in the car for most of the day and to get out to stretch his legs probably equated to more fun than I could imagine.
