Lake Huron in the Fall

Lake Huron brings a feeling of nostalgia whenever I am there. It is where I grew up and where I spent endless hours at the beach with friends. It is where I spent my summer with family at our cottage and where I grew my love of the water. It is where I got married and where we will spend countless hours in the future with the little babe. 

My parents' live right on the shore of Lake Huron. So without fail, every time I visit, a beach walk is in order. While the beach is certainly the place to be in the summer, Lake Huron in the fall is just as spectacular. I think you'll agree.

I'm not the only one that loves a good beach stroll. Our family dogs, Lola and Titus, are always game for checking out the new sights and smells. Beach is a regular word in their 'vocabulary' and part of their daily routine. As soon as they hear the word, its straight for the door.

And once that door opens, its a mad dash down. There's no stopping them, not even with their second favourite word, treat. Its always the same game - they lead, we follow. So helpful.

Most of the time, they're just happy to have the freedom to wander. But sometimes, it does get them in trouble. Especially if they come across a dead fish or a fresh patch of poison ivy

Titus can be a bit of a drama king. It can never be a perfect walk. Whether he's too cold (hence his sister's leopard print sweater), the flies are out (he has bad fly anxiety and thinks they're all out to get him) or he just feels like being dramatic, there's always something he's not happy with. So sometimes a time out is needed, to remind him to slow down, relax and enjoy the view. 

Because I definitely enjoy that view.

If you asked me to tell you one of my favourite places on Earth, the answer would be simple. Lake Huron. And I think Lola and Titus (on most days) would agree.
