WITH BASHFUL AND DA PHENNY….
Guess what we did? We drove to da beach… that was the surprise the mama had for me …
…we visited St. Brieuc, that’s the capital city of Côtes-d’Armor… although it looks a little exotic… they have a completely different weather there, the people wore t-shirts and had nekked stilts while the staff was wrapped in their siberian-survival-outfit.
…we furst passed the harbor…
…and another harbor what was the same just from the other side, because my dad was LOST IN FRANCE like always…
omd omd is that the ocean?
howly s…. Bashful look, look the ocean!
….oh wow I can not see the end of that big pond… and stones have the best eyes… or have you ever seen a stone with glasses?
… yep… The Rolling Stones used a lot of glasses butt not for their eyes…hehehehe…come on, Bashful, let’s enter that beach thingy…
…and together we waddled that steep path down to the ocean and the beach…
…and like always the good things have to be earned… and so we had to manage the Rue de la Merde furst… a challenge I tell ya … like playing minesweepers…
…and there it was … THE BEACH AND THE OCEAN!
…and because I loved it immediately, Bashful talked with the Rolling Stones on the beach and together we sang the french anthem of the ocean…
What? You can’t sing a capella?… ok here is the music…
oh and while we are talking about hearts and dreams and stuff, here are the objects of desire of the mama since 1997!!! She takes a photo of her two dreams every year…
here is da furst dream…the view over the bay is worth any price…sadly that’s what the seller of this house thinks too… so the mama can stuff that dream…
…and this is dream n°2… a guy snatched this gem from under the nose of the mama… and all what he does when he is there two days per year is sitting on the stairs with coke while waiting that the whole booth will collapse under his butt…
…what a shameless diy-cowboy he is… yes the mama chuckled to herself as he blamed the guy for abusing the fab house…self-reflection is a thing what happens never at the mama, so a miracle happened … HOWLELUJAH!
…butt guess what also happened that day?
..as we came down that path a group of dogs welcomed me… a rottweiler, a slovenly peter, a small pup and two Charlies …
…and my dad had to hold me tight, because I’m a hero and tried
to run back to the car… to show them who is beach boss dog…
… then two women came and called the dogs back… they were dogsitters who brought their clients to the beach for a run…
yes. St. Brieuc is a REAL town and there such things like dog sitters exist even when country eggs like the mama and my dad were puzzled…
…our phone is sh*t, butt you maybe can see Charlie and Charlie disappear on the horizon…
… as we drove home we promised each other always to remember this day on the beach and we sealed that promise with our noses…
HAVE A GREAT TUESDAY ALL….
What a beautiful day, loved so m uch and as if I was there too with you all. Should be so exciting, I haven’t been in the ocean too dear Da Phenny 🙂 Thank you for this beautiful travel post, have a nice and great day, Love you and your humans, don’t forget this 🙂 nia
We like the photo of Bashful with the other rocks. Looked like a pawsome trip.
What a sweet little quaint place you visited to see the ocean and the beach!! Bashful was in his element fur sure!
Petcretary almost put tea into the laptop when she read the caption…Rue de la Merde. BOL, BOL!!! Minesweepers indeed!! No baggies? (to do pick up duty by the perpetrator huh…sheesh.) Maybe if they don’t wanna clean up they need to put baggies on a harness/sling at the rear like with horses? Nah…then it wpuld be hard to lift the leg for privacy pawlease.
Thanks for letting us share in your travels the petcretary and I. Hey growlmy? Can we visit the beach? I am almost 15 and only was on a beach once…it needs to be part of my bucket list.
Awesome! I have never been to the beach that I can remember. I think I must ask mum to take me so I can sniff and have a feel! Have a pawsome day!
We absolutely loved going along on your beach adventure with you and your staff Phenny! What a fun surprise for you and Bashful. We loved all of your photos and even your mom’s dream houses! Thanks for sharing this fabulous day with us!
We think the beach should become a regular feature! We’ve never seen the ocean.
What a wonderful day for visiting the seaside! Good to hear that Bashful didn’t go off with some local talent. Bet you just loved your day DP.
Wow…what a WONDERFUL day!!! You not only SAW the ocean you got to SWIM in it!!!!!
Oh yes, days like that always stay in you memory
Loves and licky kisses

PeeS Did you see Aunty Freya waving her paw back at you from her beach?
I bet you had lots of fun! It looked like Bashful was enjoying hanging out with his mates / relations. What a waste for that lovely house to be used so little!
OMD what a FAByoulush outing together with Bashful!!! I love mama’s dream cottage too and think it is a crime it is not getting more TLC… but hey, you have a dream in the country, right? Right. Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
WOWEEEEE! Now that’s an adventure for sure – a trip to the beach with Bashful and a chance to sniff the ocean water and see a pretty beach village up close! Those houses your Mom wishes she could have are both interesting – the super pretty one, and the pitiful one that only sees its’ owner two times a year. I bet it gets lonely. If a Weimpup and his parents were there – those windows would be open and that grass would be trimmed and a dog I know and love would be barking at the fishermen going by! Sounds like a nice dream.
Love, Angel Sammy and Teddy
Oh the beach… I just love the beach! What a great place to take Bashful! We just got back from the beach in Venice, Florida and I told CH I want to go back. It is a long two day drive for us… I DO NOT fly… and I had a meltdown in the car both days! I love the houses your Mom loves, Phenny!
That is the most pawsomiest surprise!
Thanks for bringing me to France! 😋 OK, it sure felt like I was in France. The houses are beautiful and boo to the DIY rock pot. That guy doesn’t know how to DIY at all. 😉 Maybe he’ll croke soon and you’ll get another chance to buy. I’d have to DIY an elevator tho. That is a high climb!
OMG, P! What a day you and B had. I like your mom’s dream homes and even the nightmare. And that ocean! Wow! Could you see me from there? That is for sure a day to remember. Did you get your feet into the sand or the water?
Love and licks,
Wow, what a cool place to visit.
Da Phenny OMCs did you and Bashful see me waving at you from across the big pond?
What a beautiful day you had to travel too. I cannot imagine taking groceries to that house but it sure does have a gorgeous view. Hey maybe we can all move in it together and we’ll have enough money to hire a purrsonal grocery shopper.
We sure are enjoying seeing parts of France.
Hugs madi your bfff
PS mom is glad she wasn’t the only one to use beer on her hair.
Hey Da Phenny just another email to sign up again to receive auto notice of your new post. For some reason I stopped getting notices over the weekend all good now
what an adventure!
Wonderful photos, wonderful day, wonderful friends!
What a great surprise (and that house was surprise, too) ad not a mat of shame in sight! A super day indeed.
Squeals with piggy delight. What a fantastic trip that was for sure!! Now my mom/dad are craving the beach. Great trip bro!! XOXO – Bacon
Reblogged this on Piglove and commented:
Oh friends – are you wondering what Bashful is up to with Da Phenny? Check it out! XOXO – Bacon
Do Weimar’s like to swim? Or do they hate water Like I do? Wilma loves water. There is something wrong with her.
to tell the truth, I like water too… LOL
OMD, a beach trip! How exciting! You know, I’ve never been to the beach in my whole life? You’re one up on me already, Phenny!
That was a great surprise for us readers too! I need a trip to the beach!
Where are the swimming photos? Didn’t you jump into the water? I would have gone swimming.
I think Bashful is taking advantage of your hospitality by putting his noseprints on your windows.
Looks like you all had a great time at the beach. Now our mom has the American version of “La Mer” stuck in her head.
Millie & Walter
Oh, what a view from your mama’s dream!! I could easily spend some time up there, just watching the world go by!
Looks like a fun little trip!
I love the adventure today, the music and least you don’t have to worry about the stuff that happens sometimes with waterfront properties…erosion and stuff. Sometimes it’s just nice to dream about such houses. So good to see all of you – much love to you!
Mee-you that WAS sum adventure you an bashfull had!
Thee house iss luvley…..butt did it get painted that screamin shade of BLUE? Mee likess blue (who doess not?) butt to change a beeuteefull stone house iss just rude!
All inn all it sounds like a fun day at thee Beech an mee wishes mee could go to thee Beech…butt it iss under sum 3 feet of snow still, mew mew mew…..
***nose rubsss*** Siddhartha Henry xxxx
I had picked another color too… but it’s the color of brittany and maybe therefore they used this hardcore blue?
Mee-you ‘hard’ iss rite Phoenix! Mee wood have liked another color all so….peeple have sum funny ideass,don’t they?? Mew mew mew…
I love the beach, but the beaches I have been to (in the Manche and on Ile de Ré) don’t look like that. They have nothing but sand, sand, and more sand.
Da Phenny I just fell in love. St. Brieuc is like maybe a corner of Heaven. Why my Great great grandfather left ~well maybe because he did not like being part of Germany at the time ~ but St. Brieuc if he had lived there I think he would have stayed. Lee says she could see us living there. Even if we had to toss the groceries up the steps.
Thanks for being a friend
Sweet William The Scot
What a beautiful surprise and major adventure! I can’t imagine living in one of those homes. That would be very nice ♥
I love to see such interesting places. Thanks for taking me on a virtual tour. And so glad you could all go together!
WOWIE that was a Day to remember FUREVER fur SURE. OMD you gotted to Smell and touch the REAL Ocean. THAT is a dream of OURS.
What a wonderful trip – we LOVE the ocean! It looks like you two boys had an excellent time there. This Mom always dreams of living in one of the beautiful homes on the coast too….except I’d pass on the one built into the cliff too….that seems like way too much work.
What a brilliant day at the St Brieuc. And doesn’t Bashful look at home on the beach amongst his friends.
It looks like ya’ll had a real adventure Phenny. We can’t ‘magine what it would be like to go to da beach. We don’t have any here. ‘Course mommy wouldn’t take us in da winter time anyways, MOL Big hugs to all.
Dezi and Raena
Unless we move across the country to the east or the west, we are never going to see the ocean. And how we would love to do that. Just imagine how much fun it would be to run in the sand. That was a great place to take you and Bashful, Da Phenny. We are just so glad that you didn’t lost Bashful among all those beach stones.
Woos – Lightning and Misty
What a wonderful trip ! That’s a beautiful place, we’re glad you all had great time. Purrs
You were so food! Bet you got lots of pets and treats. They dint even bring the bad rug of shame with you
Lily & Edward
Y’all sure had a fun out n’ about Phenny!
haha…A fine drive and wonderful walk even if there were introoders. Such a warm place. Shirt sleeves, eh. That would be wonderful. Bashful enjoyed communing with his French relatives.
Shoko and mom
Loved seeing your adventure. Are you a salty dog now?
Great day out for you and Bashful. Adventures and road trips are great. Did you get iScream – at the beach it’s traditional – Beaches and iScream go together.
What a fun time all of you had! We loved your slideshow, Phenny!
What a wonderful trip to the ocean and your mama’s dream places! So you were a big hero, right?? Scared the Charlies right away did ya?
Murphy & Stanley
Wow, what a totally pawsome day at La Mer!
Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo
What a wonderful surprise!! And we loved the beautiful pictures. That is truly a lovely place! We know you and your family had a spectacular visit to the ocean.
Molly and my Mom
I’ve never been to a real beach so thanks for making me feel like I was there.
Aroo to you,
What a most pawsome trip to the beach!!!
Mr Bailey, Hazel & Mabel
WOW! Those pictures are absolutely beautiful, Phenny. Such a beautiful environment. Granny put on the music to taste a little more of the realm you and Bashful and your peeps of course… were going and as always we had a loud MOL because of the Rue de la merde 😀 Pawkisses for a Happy Day…you just made mine 😉 ❤
What a beautiful adventure! I love the ocean too and those rocks are beautiful.
That was some fine day there Da Phenny. Wished I could have waLked with you there. We could have run and run… and run some more. We could have even gone in circles. B
What a terrific beach outing! Maybe your mama can become friends with the guy and one day when he no longer comes for two days a year, she’ll get a special phone call saying she now has one of her dreams. 🙂
What a beautiful place. Looks like a lot of friends of Bashful there. Although I am not sure I would like to live on a cliff.
