Pooch Plunge!

September 12, 2011 at 8:46 pm 2 comments

Our Saturday started off with a splash, literally, as we took the pups to the Pooch Plunge at Legion Stadium here in Wilmington. Every year after Labor Day, the city opens up the pool to pups before they have to clean and drain it for the year. They ask for a $5 donation per dog, which then goes towards the Wilmington Dog Park Committee.



We met up with some friends who brought their Husky mix, Cortana, along to play. There were TONS of dogs everywhere, but ours wanted no part of the water. Instead, they ran around like crazy women and made friends left and right. Needless to say, they slept for the better part of Saturday afternoon! Stedman did, unfortunately, tear a couple of her paw pads and has since been taking it easy around the house. I think this may actually be the calmest I’ve ever seen her. But, they’ll heal in no time with all the licking she’s doing. Winking smile



Later in the day, we went to check out a new nearby park by for what they were calling a "Family Fun Day." Since we showed up at 6pm, we missed all the FUN that had ensued… People were walking out as we were driving up. Bust! However, we did manage to make our own fun by spending a good 45 minutes exploring on our own and playing frisbee.

On Sunday, Ryan and I had plans to go see a movie but as we were killing time beforehand, Ryan got a call from a friend of ours who invited us to go out boating. Um, yes please! We immediately returned the movie tickets and high-tailed it home to change into our bathing suits. Ryan and I then met up with the group and headed out to the river.


What a treat! My, am I glad we skipped the movie. For the first time in person, we got to see a hydrofoil in action. Have you guys ever seen this? It’s probably one of the most awesomest (yes, that’s a word) things I’ve ever seen.

One of the guys we met up with, Travis, has been riding for about 5 years and makes it look like cake. His friend, Richard (who happens to be 57 years old!), also put on a show by doing back flips all over the water.

Our friends Dan and Charlie then decided to give it a go. For newbies, they did a REALLY good job! Check out these videos:

I think I might wait a while before trying it out for myself. Winking smile
