Given the beach was nowhere to be found during our snowstorm visit, Eko was understandably concerned the beach might have disappeared for good. And so, we set off to check up on our old pal, Montrose Beach.
Things didn’t look good. Eko stalked for any signs of life…
This is the shoreline we were looking for
But this is the shoreline we found
Eko and Riley scoured the sand for signs of life, but it was ice as far as the eye could see
Eko took once last look across the thick ice and was ready to call off the search until he heard a cheerful yelp from Riley. She found water!
Eko did not share Riley’s enthusiasm to join the polar bear club, so we quickly dashed back to the heated car to dry Riley off. We’re happy to report the beach is still very much there, but I think we’ll hold off on playing fetch in the water for a few more months.
