Day out at the beach


Mummy and Daddy finally brought me to the beach for some swimming! I've never swim before but I could get used to it! It's lots of fun, to be honest, and the soft sand is just as lovely to play in as the mud in the park.

Here's a video of me frolicking on the beach. We were at Tanjong Beach in Sentosa island where the water and sand is much cleaner than the East Coast beach.

Such soft, white sand...


Initially I was scared of the waves, even though they were lapping gently onto the shore.


I met a dog called Stanley, who just finished swimming. Look at how wet he is!


Daddy was encouraging me to go into the water. Luckily they didn't dragged me in cos they wanted me to go into the water on my own accord and enjoy the entire experience.


Just like mud, only cleaner and approved by my parents!


Nice cool sand...


Mummy and me


Watch out! Here I come!


A morning run at the beach, how cool is that?!


Do I look sexy in my beach shot?


Playing in the water with Daddy


I love to splash around and lick the sea water. But it's so salty...yucks!


I can see tiny fishes in the water!


The sea stretches long and far...I wonder what's on the other side?


Exploring, sniffing, and looking for anything edible.


I got deeper into the sea after I see my parents standing in the sea with the water level at their knee. If they can go in this far, it should be safe!


There's a Jack Russell Terrier at the beach too. He could swim really well!


He could swim even faster than his owner!


He's not too keen to teach me swimming though.


A Golden Retriever was swimming too!


I jumped in to join him! But he kept growling at me.


There's another sheltie too. But he is kinda shy.


We became friends pretty soon and he loves to play bitey face with me!


As for Prince, the Golden Retriever, I think he wasn't too keen to swim but his owner wanted him to. Poor guy!

We left the beach pretty soon after the battery in Mummy's camera went dead. The weather was getting hotter too, so we quickly retreated into the car and drove off to Granddad's house for another shower in the garden!

I want to go to the beach again, very soon!
