Friday Fun Facts and Video – Wilbur

This week I decided to showcase Wilbur, the famous beach pig. He is the main character in Wilbur the Beach Pig Remember When. One of my favorite parts of working on the beach, was watching Wilbur take his daily dips in the ocean, or grunt at us in front of the sailing school shed when he wanted a shower to cool down.

Here are some videos made by others who thought Wilbur was just as cool I did.

We cleaned and filled his water trough each day

Hearing him snore was a daily occurance.

He is missed, but will always be remembered.

Friday Fun Facts and Photos – Animals Everywhere!

Oliver, Miss Mocha, Lion Paw and Wilbur were not the only characters hanging out on the beach. We seemed to be the place that all animals came too. We had a chicken show up one day. It stayed with us for a bit and then we never saw it again.

We had a cat show up. We named her Socks. She ended up going to a family off the beach.

Then there was Cally. She was brought to the beach and still resides there today. Oliver and Wilbur were not the only ones that liked to hang out by the boat rack. You could find Cally there taking a snooze.

…or you could find her cuddled up in the sails of our sailing boats

…or in the watersports shed curled up in our snorkel vests….

Do you have a pet? Where do they like to hang out?
