Two weeks ago Teach and family took our annual beach vacation at the Outer Banks in North Carolina. We stay in Hatteras Village, which for those who have never been, the Village is as far as you can drive on Route 12 before having to take a ferry to the next Island (Ocracoke). This was Teach's second trip to the ocean and I think he enjoyed it as much as we did.

Taking Teach out on the beach (I rhymed ... LOL!) was like walking a celebrity. People are always stopping and asking about him and how beautiful/unusual he is. They want to know what breed and so on. One family had two little boys who became his fan club and yelled and cheered at him all week when they saw him. Of course they loved his name (he was named after Edward Teach, Blackbeard, who was well known along the Outer Banks and was supposedly killed off the coast of Ocracoke).
Teach went for walks in the morning and evening. The middle of the day was to hot for a dog with a black coat so he chilled in the house with his Aunt Roxy. He seemed content with that. His favorite activities towards the end of the week was ridding the beach of those pesky laughing gulls and their little friends. He was run and herd them off ... for them to only land a little bit ahead of him ... and the cycle continued.
I took so many pictures, as usual, its hard to figure out which ones to share. Hope you enjoy the ones I picked!!
