Stepping Out With Wylla Stout: A Day at the Beach
I was in need of an ocean escape and so was Jennifer. Wylla is always game for an adventure, so I gathered her things, packed her daypack, loaded the car, and we all headed to Wesport, Wa.
Though the ground was wet and skies were gray when we started off in the morning, by the time we made it to the coast, it was sunny and bright. It turned into the perfect day for a fall beach outing with a cat.
Westport is a bustling place during the summer, but on a fall weekday, it's desolate. While we walked the beach, we only saw a handful of folks and a couple of dogs.
The ocean was a little rough, so we kept a good distance from the waves and spent most of our time perching on rocks and logs. Wylla loves sniffing ocean air.
Wylla rode on my shoulder most of the day and but when we got close to this metal structure, she cried and wanted to climb it.
I obliged, and she was one happy cat.
Jennifer held Wylla's leash while I stepped a little further back to take some pictures. Our little monkey decided to try climbing higher.
"Don't worry! I've got her butt!" said Jennifer. Thankfully she did, and we got her down before she got into trouble.
The rest of our time was spent watching pelicans and waves.
And walking the shore.
"I'm petting a cat and looking at the ocean! It does not get any better than this!" exclaimed a very happy Jennifer.
I have to agree. It was the best day.
