My name is Maggie Mae and I am 9 years old. I live with my mom and dad in Seaside Village which is near the beach. Dad and I have a special routine every day: First we go to McDonald’s for coffee, so that my friends there can say hello to me. Then dad takes me for a ride up and down Ocean Boulevard so that I can see and bark greetings at any dogs we might pass. After that, if it’s not raining, we go for a 21/2 mile walk. I really look forward to my walk, especially if it’s on the beach, because that’s my favorite.
I think I own the beach and the boulevard and really have a good time. Most days I go in the water and get my feet wet; that feels so good. I have made many friends during my walks so if you are anywhere near the south end you probably know me. Everyone, including all of our vacationers and snowbirds, know me by name and remember me from year to year. I have made friends with people from all over the world and some have even come to our house just to say goodbye to me and take my picture. I just love people and life.
