Dog’s best friend. This pup was in dog heaven Sunday morning as he and his master walked the tideflats to water’s edge at Ship Harbor. Lots to explore along the way before the ultimate frolic in the surf.
I never cease to be amazed when I visit the perimeter of Dakota Creek Industries (DCI) ship yard on the north shore of Anacortes.
