That's because the forces of nature conspired this summer to create a pretty spectacular tidal pool on the north end of Pawleys.
In case you didn't know, dogs love tidal pools even more than people do.
At first Zelda was only up for a little wading. I think she was afraid to mess up her fur.
But after some gentle nudging on my part, she swiftly earned her doggy paddlin' badge; I (of course) squealed in delight because it seems that I sometimes forget she's a dog, and yes, dogs do things like swim.
