Saturday the corgi meetup went to Fort De Soto beach in St. Petersburg so I took my camera along. I decided to see how I would fare with the 50mm prime lens on it the entire time. It made shooting tricky since you have to be a certain distance away but I managed to get a few decent shots. Next time I'll just take my kit lens with me so I'm not missing shots.
The corgis had fun. Basil immediately ran into the water and swam around as soon as we got onto the beach. Bernie found the nearest person to sit beside and pet her. Byron adopted an entire family (mostly their dogs) and nearly left the beach with them. By the time I left around 1PM I was exhausted keeping up with all three corgis. I'm glad I went but I'm also glad I don't go to that park that often. It is a workout getting there and back. Now for some the photos (if you want to see all the photos I took for the meetup you can look at the Facebook Photo Album):
Someone brought an adorable 4 month old tri-color corgi puppy to the meetup. I wanted to steal him.
Bernie in her beloved dirt pile:
Bernie is actually happy though it doesn't look like it.
She loves shaking off though.
Byron hesitantly making friends
One of the people Bernie adopted for the afternoon. Had you not known she was my dog you would have assumed she was with this guy.
Byron fell in love with this white dog. I had to put him on leash a few times to stop him from humping him. He kept trying to do it even in the water.
