Doesn't look "light" to me!

We spent a lovely afternoon on Connanicut Island looking at this- mom & dad called it a "light house", but it doesn't look very light to me. It's all big blocks, very heavy stuff. I guess I'll never understand humans.

The best part was the 40 mph winds whipping up huge waves crashing on the rocks! Humom couldn't get a picture to do them justice, but she tried.

We walked way out on the rocks, mom was afraid we'd get blown off!
Mom thought it was cute that I am using Jack as a wind block, but I'm still looking for ways to make him useful, to justify keeping him around:

Here's the whole scene, the rocks we're on are quite high up, you can see the swells behind us.

The next picture is looking up the coast, mom thought you'd like to see it too.

This enormous ship went by, it looked like something from Star Wars! (Jack & I were busy watching a lady with a mouthy beagle behind mom.)

Mom says that while we were enjoying the sunshine, my boy spent the whole day shoveling snow back in Ohio -- they got 20" !!!!! Still no sign of snow here....how pathetic.

Wooos & a-rooos,
Star & Jack-O-'Lantern- a-roo
(get it? Lantern, as in "light house"

Wowzers, the ocean looks so cool! That house doesn't look light to me, either. Biped language is really crazy sometimes.

Jack, that was funny. Jack O' Lantern! Ha, ha! I can tell it was windy because in the picture where Star is hiding from the wind, Jack's fur looks really blown around!

Star and Jack, I enjoyed your lighthouse adventure! And I'm sorry that your boy had to shovel so much snow. Just in case I have not already told you this today, you are both very fluffy and beautiful.

Thank you again for sharing your lighthouse visit,
Elyse

Great pics, guys! Our ocean doesn't look anything like that! We don't have any cool rocks, or lighthouses, just lots of sand & lots of people.
Mikki sends her love to Jack.
Kisses,
Bama & the RHP

Oh my sweet Jack, I'm so relieved! Of course you are still my boyfriend, furever and always. You'll always be the Jack-of-Hearts to me, I have to say I don't really care for Jack-o-Lantern, though you do "Light Up my Life".
Howroooroo, mom says "thanks Mik, now I have an earworm named Debbie Boone!". Thats what she gets for neglecting our blog for so long that she made you question my loyalty, HA! Serves her right, evil woman!
Hugs & Kisses,
YOUR Mikki

Star,
I saw your comment on my blog. I've had a crush on the sweet Jack-a-Roo since you first talked about him on your blog. He is SO cute and handsome. I just had to move on to Thunder because Mikki had taken Jack. We bloggers sure have some crazy love triangles!

Hey Jack-a-Rooo ~

Keep being the "Handie Mann" >>>
"Mom thought it was cute that I am using Jack as a wind block, but I'm still looking for ways to make him useful, to justify keeping him around."

You're efforts haven't gone un-noticed ... too bad they're not more *appreciated* by "Her Queenship".

Oh well, Keep Trying, Bub!
