My day trip to a beach in Holland, Michigan with the pup

I feel complete whenever I am near the water and so does my dog, Stella.  She loves playing fetch by swimming out to grab her ball and riding the waves back in.  It was a perfect day to go to the beach, and the cherry on top was the group of horseback riders who rode down the beach.  Stella started barking at them (probably because she has never seen a horse before) so one of the riders came up close to us.  She said she is a dog groomer and knows a thing or two about dog behavior.  She came up with the horse to show Stella some respect, and it worked!  Check out these beautiful photos of the beach :)
