Thanks for the comments about Shasta. I appreciate them.

I thought today I'd just share a nice sunrise video and some of my Things That Make Me Smile Phone Photos. 

I'll be back to posting life stuff tomorrow. 

This one is from Lake Huron, on Michigan's Eastern shore

Day 252 (Friday 9th Sept)

Tent has served us well. All set up. Makes me smile

Day 253 (Sat 10th Sept)

First day with daughter and Shasta. We had a nice relaxing day at the campground. All the huskies were excited to see us. 

Day 254 (Sunday 11th Sept)

The lovely Tahquamenon Falls. Had a lovely visit with daughter, SIL and huskies. Shasta actually walked this day. I think she had fun. Daughter had the wagon with her and Shasta would ride for a little while but she really wanted to walk and sniff. This was SIL's first visit to The Falls. I think he enjoyed it!

Day 255 (Monday 12th Sept)

It rained most of the day, but we made the most of it. We visited FOUR new-to-me lighthouses. I can strike them off the bucket list. Daughter and SIL climbed to the top of two of them. Husband and I watched the huskies! I think the rain was chasing us. It seemed that every time we got to a lighthouse, got out and walked, it started to pour!

Day 256 (Tuesday 13th Sept)

We went out in the morning. It was Shasta's last good morning. On the way back to the campsite she was being sick. When we were at Kitch-iti-Kipi (Michigan's largest Freshwater Natural Spring) she had a lovely time. We got on the raft that goes across the lake. When we got off she wanted to get back on - she did her thing where she stood solidly and refused to move. That's a good memory I have from that day.

Back tomorrow. 


  1. I don't seem to have been getting notifications of your new posts, Sharon, until today. I'm really sorry - I wasn't ignoring them.

    I'm so sorry about Shasta - she was a beautiful dog both outwardly and inwardly too. It was the right thing but that doesn't help with the sadness.

    Much love to you all. xx

    1. I think Blogger is having issues again. Some blogs have disappeared completely from my list!

      She was ready to go I think. You're right though, it doesn't make it easier.

  2. Thank you for the video of the lake shore and sunrise. I really enjoyed watching that video! Poor Shasta; I think she enjoyed being together with all of you on her last days.

    1. Thank you. I think she did enjoy herself before it got too much

  3. The photo of your daughter and Shasta is beautiful and something to treasure. xx

    1. Luckily we have lots of photos of Shasta. She was such a photogenic dog, though (like most of the females in the family) she didn't like having her photo taken!

  4. Sorry to read about Shasta - she looked like such a loving dog.
    You have some good photo memories.


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.
