My Austwalian fwiends Charlie doggie, my sissy Momo and hew cousin Charlotte got a yacht in Sydney and decided to take us all on an adventoowe..stopping in vawious places to visit fwiends along the way....

I was cewtainly weady aftew the owdeal of my BAF , HOOMILIATING EXPOSOOWE,and my WIWE FOX
(I will of couwse wepowt on that as soon as the pictoowes awe developed)

a little quiet time wif fwiends was just what I needed.

It's just sooo welaxing and bootiful ..we had cool dwinks and just lay awound till lunch time...

Since it is close to the beach in Biloxi we went to Mary Mahoney's for lunch. This is a very old restaurant, it is even older then my Mommi. The house is even older then the restaurant, it was built around 1737. The French architecture of the "Oldest House in Biloxi" is apparent, with high ceilings, hand hewn cypress columns, and slate roof. The house includes old slave quarters, kitchen, and even a cellar. Next to the house is the Patriarch, a live oak tree that dates back over 2,000 years. You can read all about it here.

We ate in the courtyard under the Patriarch Oak.

Then we all boarded the yacht to go cruising through the Gulf of Mexico...

It's quite famous because you can boat all the way from Flowida, up the East coast of the US, to the New England awea via the IntwaCoastal... what a trip!...thank you fow telling us all this..it's stuff I nevew knew and it's weally intewesting.

Fwom hewe we will go and visit Samantha and Tigger, Daisy and Debwa's kitties (Abby, Boo, Jinx, Ping and Gracie).

Hey, what a fun day we had sissy Asta! Love cruising under blue skies, having munchies and laughing with friends. Have a good night!

I am envious that you got to go out on a megayacht. I am good with docklines. I grab one end and you grab the other then we pull as hard as we can. I even have my own PFD (Pup Floatation Device).

Luna Licks,


PS: I'm so happy we got to meet today. You have a nice Mommy and Daddy.

Hey, Asta,

You are going to have a great time with Sam, Tigger, Abby and Boo. Have a lot of fun! Enjoy some Niptinis!

Jans Funny Farm said...

We hear Rusty had a great time with all of you on the cruise today. Rusty brought us home a "doggie bag" from the restaurant. He and Socks were still hungry and went back for take out.

We are looking forward to hearing about the cancer walk. We imagine it was very tiring but worthwhile.

You have the best trips ever! I'm so jealous! I can't believe your human lets you go out like that all the time! Woo hoo!

I hope your mom is feeling better! Has she been playing a lot lately?

Also, National Stuffy Appreciation Day is May 8th! Bring out the best pictures of you and your Stuffies!

Hi, Asta -

Your adventures sound like a lot of fun. When I (Hershey) go out on the boat Mama and Papa make sure that I wear a life jacket - they don't want anything bad to happen to me.

we are looking forward to hearing about your walk for cancer.

If you ever make it to New England, be sure and look us up. We'll get Kaci to come down from New Hampshire so you don't have to go there.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
