This is a photo I took earlier this summer while visiting a favorite spot on Lake Huron. It is a beach where I used to spend a lot of time as a child. Just past Oscoda but before Harrisville. It is funny how a place can put one in touch with one's past. This dog, Brooke, looks a lot like the dog I had as a kid, Fonzie. Fonzie spent a lot of time at that beach too. And somehow, that day when I sat there looking out over the blue water, I felt like I was sitting next to an old friend who has known me my whole life.
