WOW #64: The WADDLE!!! (Part 1)

Greetings friends! I hope you're all well and have lots of cookies and bacon! I had SUCH an exciting trip last weekend! It was SO fun and so full of adventures, I think it'll take me TWO entries to tell you all about it! Bimmer and I got to go to Ocean City, NJ to be part of the Basset Waddle! It was so fun! We took Mummy and Auntie A with us so they wouldn't get into trouble while we were gone. I even let Mummy drive the new car. We started out by loading all the luggage in the car. It took hours and HOURS! I can't imagine what Mummy wanted with all that stuff! She even packed food for us, can you believe it? I thought we could just go out and get something on the Boardwalk or maybe at Five Guys when we got hungry, but she had to pack all that food! After we FINALLY got everything in the car (in the way back-the part Mummy wanted US to sit in, heh heh!) we went to Auntie A's house to get her. And SHE brought MORE stuff! Honestly, what do they need with all that stuff? (THEN when we got there, Mummy kept complaining that she forgot to bring this thing or that thing. I really can't imagine where we would have put it all if she'd remembered everything!) Here we are at Auntie A's house waiting for the luggage to all be loaded.
And we waited...
FINALLY they showed signs of actually getting in the car!
Then we went to Hardee's and had sausage biscuits...almost like my dream! Finally we were ready to hit the road. Bimmer and I thought that would be a good time to take a nap. So we did.
At this point, I would just like to say, NOBODY EVER MENTIONED ALL THE WELLS!!! We had to cross all these LOOOOONNNNG bridges over some of the BIGGEST wells I've ever seen! Just LOOK at all that water!
Here's one of the bridges...
I do NOT like driving over top of those giant wells!
In between bridges the trip was pretty uneventful. Would you believe it? Mummy missed her turn and we had to drive and drive and DRIVE to get back to Ocean City! I finally had to take matters in my own paws and help her find the way! We'd ALREADY missed the Basset Olympics, I didn't want to miss the whole Waddle!
It took a VERY long time, but we did finally get there're NOT going to believe this! Ocean City is actually sitting out in the MIDDLE of one of those giant wells! We had to cross ANOTHER bridge to get there! It wasn't even FINISHED yet! And then there we were with water....
every way we turned!
Fortunately, the water wasn't in our motel! Here it is. Isn't it cute?
When we got to the motel I was able to meet up with my good friend Baxter Frisch! We've been friends on Facebook for a long time now, but this was the first time we got to meet in the fur.
Baxter just loves a good laugh! (Wait'll you see his Waddle costume!) It was late by the time we finally got settled in, so we just took a little walk around and then went to our room to watch a little TV and get ready for bed. And so the first day of our Waddle adventure ended! Stay tuned! To be continued....
