Tito Tuesday

I love taking road trips with my Tito. It’s a really cool experience to be able to incorporate your dog into your vacation. That being said, there are still some places that restrict dogs, and as I walked up to the beach on Jupiter Island, I realized that it was one of those places. Dare I say this out loud but I have been known to look the other way when it comes to a sign full of rules on a beach, especially the rules against dogs. Now I wouldn’t go walking my pup on a crowded beach in the middle of Spring Break, but maybe right after sunset on a weekday, were there! Rather than sunset I decided to do something a little different with Tito on this trip. We woke up and saw the sunrise. Even better! Because no one is on the beach at 6:30 in the morning, especially when its 40 degrees. Tito and I didn’t mind the brisk morning walk down Jupiter Beach to the blowing rocks preserve. And while every inch of me was screaming for a strong cup of coffee I felt rejuvenated when I saw Tito chase his first bird along the waters edge. The sunrise was GORGEOUS! Once the sun had risen past the pinks and orange hues we marched around the preserve walking through the natural sea grape paths. I swear it felt like something out of Alice and Wonderland. As the path of sea grapes finally ended it brought us out to the tip of the preserve where we ran into another sunrise admirer, Glen. Glen was an awesome guy who is actually kayaking all around North America. He made a pit stop at the blowing rocks preserve but was headed out that morning up the Coast. His journey is a really cool one and you can check out his blog, One Ocean Project.
So as the rest of the world slowly began to rise, Tito and I trotted back to our car and took a quick power nap. This was an incredible adventure that I will never forget. Here are some of my favorite shots from that morning.
