Puppies at Sea Island, GA

These photos are from a trip we took to Sea Island, GA in early May with our Standard Poodle, Sheldon, and Australian Shepherd, Fiona.  Sea Island is a gated resort community south of Savannah, right outside of Saint Simons Island, GA.  We stayed at The Cloister.  It was our first visit, and they are 100% dog-friendly.  Unfortunately, the weather did not really cooperate, as we have had an extremely wet spring.  From the looks of things, the April showers are carrying over into our early summer as well!  As I am writing this, the skies have darkened and a huge thunderhead is forming.  Oh well…..

This was their first foray to the beach.  The both just turned a year old this past week.  We are looking forward to a sunnier day when we can all go for a swim together!

There is a giant sunroom at the Cloister that houses a pair of love birds.  Puppies’ first encounter with a feathered friend.  They were utterly fascinated, as was the little birdie!

We had lunch on the outdoor patio at the “sit down” restaurant at the Beach Club.  Being that it is right on the ocean, you can imagine how many birds are loitering about, waiting to pounce on whatever was left on the plates of diners after they’ve left their table.  Fear not!  The place is staffed by a genuine falconer!

Can you see the little hood on the falcon?  I had never seen or heard of this practice!  But the handler would just mosey about the perimeter of the dining area, and any unwelcome birds that got even the slightest glimpse of this mighty creature would make tracks and get out of dodge!  It was really cool.

We had a great stay in Sea Island.  We love traveling with the dogs, and are always on the lookout for pet friendly accommodations.  Will keep you updated on any new places we discover.

Thanks for reading!  kxoxo
