We planned to make a quick stop at our friends to drop off the keg and do more errands (gardening for me - home owners stuff for Jason), but what was planned for a quick stop ended up being a pre-4th bbq.
Georgetown Brewery made a mistake with our order and instead of a mini keg (21 pints) we got a 1/6th barrel (42 pints) so we thought we should get a head start to make sure we could finish it all for the 4th.
Since we left early from work on Friday for SIB, Robin was staying the full day and managed to receive our Thundershirts from FedEx. We decided to test them out on the dogs.
Friday does have her's on... she's just so relaxed in it she melted into the dock. :)
The last time we were at the houseboat Darwin was pretty anxious, and kept barking at the neighbors who walked by or the little dog on the houseboat across the channel. Once we put the Thundershirt on her though she quickly settled down and got comfortable.
There were a few fireworks that went off while we were hanging out and both dogs were totally fine with it. No barking, and for Friday, no panicking.
After testing out the coats Jason, Robin, Bb and I decided to enjoy the nice summer afternoon by doing some stand up paddle boarding and kayaking (in our street clothes as we were there just to drop off the keg).
Jason brought Darwin out to the end of the dock to get some photos of us and Darwin came with him. Darwin was pacing around the end of the dock trying to figure out how to get to me.
It was my first time SUP'ing and it was totally fun! We ended the day with a couple more glasses of beer and BBQing lamb burger. Such a nice Saturday in Seattle!
