Foggy Beach Dog

Probably wouldn’t have gotten out of bed so early today because it was foggy and cold, but I’d arranged to meet Sally and Molly on Big River Beach for a walk and flinging the ball and so forth before the beach got too crowded with dogs and tourists. Here’s a sequence of photos to show you how things went.

leaving the house on a foggy morning in August
heading down the hill I see the guy who walks his two black dogs here every day
where Little Lake meets Highway One, the only traffic light in Mendocino
heading south on Highway One
entering Big River Beach state park
the beach parking area, just a couple cars here today so far
Molly waiting for Sally to give her the okay to get out
Molly tiny in the distance waiting for the slow humans to catch up
walking along beside Big River
Molly went out into the waves in pursuit of an intriguing harbor seal
emerging from the waves with her ball
negotiating a challenging swell to get her ball
heading back the way we came
one last long swim to get the ball
galloping on the flats
back at the cars
one pooped pup
getting back on Highway One heading north
steep uphill
passing the empty elementary school
home again
rinsing the sand off my feet

Beautiful as performed by Todd and Marcia
