“Dick ‘n Bella” at the Cove…

I was sitting on my favorite rock at the Cove talking to “Matt ‘n Mattie” when “Bella” came up to me. She looked up at me with a red ball in her mouth and grinned with excitement…

I could hear Bella asking me to play red ball with her. I could see “Dick” was tired of tossing out the red ball for now…

“See Bella run!” I’d say with cheer in my voice. She knew, then, I’d play red ball with her at the Cove.

Dick was busy looking for seaweed. It is his favorite with seafood salad by the sea. His neighbors love seaweed from the Cove, too…

I tossed the red ball out a little ways, so as not to disturb Matt ‘n Mattie forging in the tide pools. It’s okay to play as long as we do not disturb Matt ‘n Mattie while they forge in the Cove…

The Cove is a heavenly place for all to share with love, kindness and joy. We always respect the sea birds at play in the Cove by the sea…

Bella loves seabirds too, especially when Matt ‘n Mattie arrive in the spring. “But they won’t play ball with me,” she said with a sad look in her eyes.

Bella was looking up at me, with the red ball in toe. She wanted me to toss it into the Cove by the sea…

So, I tossed it out again for a short distance so as to not disturb Matt ‘n Mattie. Bella knows this too. She goes gently into the water to retrieve the red ball with joy…

I love Bella and all the furry love ones in the Cove. I love Matt ‘n Mattie and all the seabirds too…
