we hit Wanda's for breakfast and part ways, they head home and we head
to Cannon Beach for one last walk. we meet a man with his pup, she is old,
dressed in a red bow and is so sweet as she and Basil do a gentle meet and greet.
later we see him carry her back to the car in his arms, explaining that she is 15 and not
doing very well. he got her right after college and they have been all over the US together,
but he fears it is her last winter, so he brought her to the beach for one last walk.
my heart melts, and i am happy Basil was part of her walk. we stop in Cathlamet
on the way home for a visit and pull into our driveway, early evening.
tired, happy, and with full hearts.
