At last it’s time for swimming and collecting rocks again. Somehow my owners don’t go swimming in winter – I miss it a lot. Now we go most days. I can recommend it. There are at least 4 good swimming lakes on Salt Spring. One where I jump off the dock; another where I dive for rocks; one where I swim over to the other side. Then there’s the ocean – my all-time favourite. We picnic on the beach then I chew on a stick or shake next to the neighbouring picnickers. Funny how they don’t seem to like it much?!
