From the Publisher's Desk: Learning to swim in the dog days of summer

Thomas and Smitty enjoy the surf under the B Street pier Sunday afternoon. The Daily Triplicate/Michele Thomas
When the skies are blue and the sun is shining, I’m easily distracted. It’s difficult to stay on task — whether I’m working at the office or doing chores at home. My sun-seeking mischievous twin finds ways to break out of interior confines and follow the call of the surf.

My oldest (by 20 minutes) son Collin recently relocated to Crescent City. He acknowledges now that I wasn’t fibbing when I’d boast about our beautiful weather here while he lived in Grants Pass where heavy fog and cold in winter can get really depressing. I remember a four-month stretch once when the fog never lifted. He’s been sufficiently impressed with the gorgeous days we’ve had.

Last weekend we spent both Saturday and Sunday afternoons under the B Street pier at low tide with our dogs. Collin’s 8-month-old pup Thomas was under the tutelage of his older, experienced “Uncle” Smitty, our yellow Lab mix who was teaching Thomas the ropes in the water. Our older Chow-mix, Martha, ignored them, preferring to sniff rocks and driftwood on higher ground.
