On the sea cliffs at Acadia
More tidepools. Nothing cool in there except seaweed
Tikko keeps an eye on me. He doesn't like walking on seaweed
The seagull complains. I tested it's flight initiation distance with human only approach and human dog approach. Dogs made this guy fly, but I could get within 3 feet on my own.

View of Sand Beach. Lots of screaming from people in the cold Atlantic waters.
Tried to roller-jor but got yelled at for being on the park road. Too hot, dogs cool off.
Running up Cadillac Mountain on the Park Road. Too many RVs. No shoulder. We'll stick to the trails from here on out.

Tikko barks at a turtle
Turtles are fun
Retreiving the turtle. I didn't throw it deep enough.
Using my high school discus skills to return the turtle to the lake, much to the dogs' chagrin
Too deep a retrieve this time.
That was fun!

Tessa also enjoyed learning about life on a submarine.
Resting. It was hot back in NH.
Trying to train Tikko to leave it, but I'm not very good at it. Still learning. Poor Tessa's trying to be good but I don't give her any treats. She's a good girl.
